Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia vs Nalanda College, Colombo – Semi Final

Thomians won the toss and elected to bat first to replicate their marathon batting effort against Mahinda College in the quarter finals. Nalanda got the better of Thurstan College to seal a spot at the semi-finals.

The opening partnership was just limited to 14 runs as skipper Sithara Hapuhinna was caught by Lakshitha Rasanjana off Chamindu Wijesinghe’s bowling. The wicket-keeper batsman could only score 6 runs in a 22 ball stay.

The big match sensation Ryan Fernando had a rare failure after his consecutive fifties in recent matches when he had to walk back to the dressing room with only 9 runs to his name.

Nalanda, S. Thomas’, Joes and Sebs earn semi-final berths

After Fernando’s dismissal, the Nalandians had to take a step back and watch the batting master class by Shalin de Mel & Yohan Perera who added 87 runs for the 3rd wicket. The pair scored 68 & 42 runs respectively.

Shalin De Mel of S. Thomas’ College held on to 7 catches and scored 67 runs off 55….

Then, the best batsman of 140th Battle of the Blues, Umayanga Suwaris started to find boundaries early in his innings and continued his red-hot form this season. He and Ravindu de Silva put up an unbeaten 123 run partnership to end the day’s play on a high.

The pick of the batsmen was Ravindu de Silva who orchestrated a wonderful century to solidify the Thomian innings with 13 boundaries while Suwaris perfected the art of making half centuries again.

They were on 311 for 4 at stumps and favourites to seal a spot at the final which will be against the winner of the encounter between St. Sebastian’s College and St. Joseph’s College.
