Colombo U19s opener Mohammed Shamaaz couldn’t continue his good form as he was dismissed cheaply for 14. After the falling of the 1st wicket, Royal duo Kamil Mishara and Ahan Wickramasinghe joined in the middle for a mouth watering 2nd wicket partnership of 161 runs in 26 overs.

Mishara who has already scored 152 & 97 in previous two innings, went past another century to seal his dominance in the batting charts. His stay for 120 runs off 114 balls included 10 fours and 6 huge sixes.

Team Dambulla got off to a flying start with their skipper Nipuna Dananjaya and Sumudu Sumanarathne blasting 50 runs in the first 5 overs but had to put brakes with the constant fall of wickets.

Exciting wrist spinner Dilmin Rathnayake who snatched 4 wickets in the previous match against the same opposition, strangled the Dambulla batting lineup with another 4-fer to take them far from required rate.

Later in the Dambulla innings, Joes duo Dineth Jayakody and Lakshan Gamage put on a promising partnership of 91 runs to light up the hopes of a great comeback with 2 fighting half centuries but failed to deliver with the ever-increasing required run rate.

Colombo dismissed Team Dambulla for 242 within 43 overs to win the championship and remain unbeaten in the tournament.

Kamil Mishara was awarded as the player of the tournament for his 377 runs in the tournament at a ridiculous average of 94.25.
