The Sri Lankan white-ball Skipper showed his class with a blazing knock for SSC to secure the game for them. Six games of the ongoing Major Clubs T20 Tournament were played today (24).
Shanaka struck 7 massive sixers on his way to 62 runs in just 27 deliveries against the Sri Lanka Air Force SC. The airmen were totally outplayed in the game as they lost by 40 runs.
Former Royalist Skipper Pasindu Sooriyabandara also made a match-defining fifty for Moors SC as they went on to win the game against Kalutara TC by 8 runs.
Soori made 58 runs in 42 deliveries with 2 fours and 2 sixers in his knock.
In the same game, seamer Tashik Perera and Left-arm spinner Inshaka Siriwardena both picked up 3 wickets each for KTC.
SSC’s Kavindu Nadeeshan kept up his fine form with the ball going, as the leggie picked up 3 more wickets today to lead the most wickets column.
Former Kuwait international Rajiva Sandaruwan and a former Sri Lanka international Gihan Rupasinghe scored fifties for Badureliya SC to earn them a 11-run (D/L) victory over CCC.
This win was to the dismay of the CCC skipper Lasith Abeyrathne, who also scored a fighting 62 not-out before the game was called off due to bad light, with only 33 to get in 16 deliveries.
