The third round of the super eight games in the SLC Major League Tier ‘A’ Tournament came to a close with CCC cementing themselves untouchable at the top of the table. 

The star of the CCC outfit, skipper Kusal Mendis, stood up for the crucial moment as the 23-year old struck a brilliant 200 while replying for a 400-plus first innings score from NCC. The game was the decider of the table-topper. Mendis walked in at 97 for 2 and there afterwards architected the first-innings win for CCC.

Lahiru Udara continues the run fest

Lasith Abeyrathne gave a steady hand to Mendis with 104 runs.

Despite the valiant knocks from NCC batsmen, Chathuranga de Silva (159) and Lahiru Udara (111), NCC had to settle for the second slot in the table.

BRC-Saracens SC game ended in a draw while the left-arm seamer Mohommad Dilshad shone with figures of 7 for 42.

Santhush Gunathilaka came for the rescue again for Colts CC as the lanky right-hander scored 82 runs to save the game against Chilaw Marians CC.

SL Army SC managed a tough draw against a heavy throbbing from Ragama CC who made 501 runs for the first innings.
