The victorious Sri Sumangala College secured their place in the final after beating Tissa Central College, Kalutara by 3 wickets in the Semi-Final.
The runner-up St. Sebastian’s College’s Semi-Final fixture against Sri Devananda College was washed out due to rain. As a result, the average points gained by the two schools in the Group stage were considered to declare a winner, but both schools had taken an equal number of points. Therefore, the organizers decided to take net run-rate into consideration, which is how St. Sebastian’s College found themselves in the final due to a better net run-rate.
St. Sebastian’s College, Katuneriya – 66 (29.3) Vishva Lahiru 3/19, Rasika Dilshan 2/12, Heshan Kavinda 2/14
