Dambulla vs Jaffna

Team Dambulla registered a 132-run win over Team Jaffna in the second semi-final worked off today at P. Sara Oval International Cricket Stadium.

Having declared their second innings at 274/9 in the morning session on day four, Team Dambulla set a mammoth target of 465 for Team Jaffna. Wanindu Hasaranga’s entertaining knock of 95 runs off 66 balls with 7 fours and 6 sixes was the highlight of Team Dambulla’s 2nd essay with the bat.

The left-arm spinner Shashika Dulshan who impressed with the ball in the 1st innings taking a 6-fer picked up 3 more wickets taking his match tally to 9 wickets for 208 runs.

Team Jaffna got off to a solid start in the run-chase as their opening pair Navod Paranavithana and Ron Chandraguptha put on a 76-run stand for the first wicket. However, after the fall of the opening wicket, Team Jaffna faced a major batting collapse losing 7 wickets for just 95 runs being restricted to 171/7.

Jaffna No. 7 batter Ravindu Fernando fought alone scoring a brisk century, but it wasn’t enough for his side as Dambulla clinched a convincing win at the end. The spinners Chalana de Silva and Ashan Priyanjan impressed with the ball for the victorious Team Dambulla taking 3 wickets each.
