The twelve 4th week matches of the SLC Major Club Emerging 3-Day Tournament 2022 resumed today for the 2nd day as Colts CC and Police SC recorded wins ending their games with a day to spare.

At Colts, the home team recorded yet another win extending their winning streak to 4 wins in 4 games. After posting a formidable 400 runs for the 1st innings on day 1, they bowled out Ace Capital CC twice today as their experienced speedster Mohamed Shiraz claimed 9 wickets including 6 in the 1st innings. This is his first game of the tournament.

Police SC recorded a stunning win coming from behind over Panadura SC at Police Park, as they chased down a target of 96 after bundling out the visitors for a mere 87 in the 2nd innings. Panadura Skipper Sasanka Nirmal’s 6-wicket haul in the 1st innings, which ensured them an 8-run 1st innings lead went in vain, as their batters could not capitalize on it.

The 6th double ton of the tournament was achieved today by Ragama CC’s Avishka Tharindu as he continued from his unbeaten 159 yesterday. He remained unbeaten on 210, his 2nd score above 200 in this tournament, as his partner Dellon Peiris was unfortunately dismissed for 99 before Ragama CC declared on 451/7. Tharindu and Peiris put on 268 for the 7th wicket. Peiris continued to enjoy a good day at office as he picked up 4 wickets to restrict Nugegoda S & WC for 131 before they were enforced to follow on.

Peterite pacie Danal Hemananda starred for BRC with impressive figures of 7/71 at Panagoda against Army SC as he led the BRC attack following a poor 1st innings outing with the bat, in which they scored only 151. However, Army managed to put on 281 to claim a healthy 1st innings lead thanks to a brilliant 109 by Ashan Dilhara late down the order batting at number 9.

SSC continued their dominance over Lankan CC in their own backyard as seamers Kalana Perera and Keshan Wijerathne shared 5 wickets apiece, demolishing the Lankan batting lineup bowling them out for just 52 runs in the 1st innings. SSC Skipper Kavindu Nadeeshan completed his century early in the day helping SSC post 361 runs on the board for the 1st innings.

While SSC were having a good time, their neighbours NCC were in a spot of bother at home. After managing just 185 runs in reply to Negombo CC’s 235 in the first innings, NCC ended the day 180 runs behind the visitors as Negombo scored 130, losing just 3 wickets. The only takeaway for NCC was Skipper Ahan Wickramasinghe’s fighting knock of 122.

Spinners Suresh Fernando (6/46), Kavika Dilshan (5/35) & Bishan Mendis (5/42) impressed for Air Force SC, Saracens SC and CCC respectively.

The 3rd and final day of the ongoing 10 matches will commence tomorrow.
