Second days’ play of two SLC Major Emerging Tournament games played today, 28th October, were washed out without a single ball being bowled. Army CC were playing Lankan CC at Dombagoda while Moors SC played Tamil Union C&AC at P. Sara Oval.
Former Richmondite left-arm spinner, Avindu Theekshana stole the show at Dombagoda with a wrecking fifer to leave the officers stranded in the game. Army SC were bowled out for 73 runs within the first session of the game.
Lankan CC staged a stubborn innings batting out the whole day till they eventually were undone with 213 runs by sunset. Lahiru Dilshan scored 45 runs top the batting chart while Shehan Wijerathne picked up 3 wickets for 25 runs to top the bowling.

Tamil Union C&AC were at 49 for 1 when the umpires decided to take off the bails on day-one.
