Team Galle posted a competitive 258/9 after batting first, with Wanindu Hasaranga making a fluent half century.

Hasaranga departed for a well made 56 for Galle, before Lahiru Madusanka added the finishing touches with an unbeaten 42*.

Minod Bhanuka and Dhananjaya de Silva made vital 30s in the middle stage, as Akila Dananjaya worked his magic against a strong Galle batting line up.

Dananjaya went on to capture 5/53 as he used his variations to good effect, while Chamika Karunaratne also captured two wickets.

Karunaratne strengthens World Cup case with solid half-century

Colombo raced to 55/0 in their run chase in just 7.1 overs, before the heavens opened up to bring a pre-mature end to the game.

Avishka Fernando – another World Cup prospect – impressed during the short stay with an unbeaten 27* as the Galle bowlers were taken to the cleaners early on.
