Not a single ball was bowled in the 2nd semi final of the 26th Singer-MCA Premier Knock-Out tournament between Dimo and Commercial Credit yesterday and the game saw a dramatic end today.
Due to heavy rains the game was not allowed to get underway at the Colts Cricket Club grounds yesterday. The game was rescheduled to take place today at the same venue and once again it faced a delayed start due to a wet outfield.

Eventually a 33-over match began as Commercial Credit won the toss and elected to field first. Dimo batting first was all-out in the last over (33rd) of the inning for a modest 198 runs.
Nipun Karunanayake and Ramesh Mendis scored 47 and 40 runs respectively for Dimo while Lahiru Madushanka, Chathuranga de Silva and Chamika Karunaratne grabbed 2 wickets apiece for Commercial Credit.
As the rains started to pour once again Commercial Credit was not able to commence their run-chase, which in turn gave the umpires no choice but to have a bowl-out to decide the winner.
