  • Team Dambulla – Nipuna Dananjaya

Team Dambulla was crushed by a margin of 147 runs after winning the toss and choosing to field first, curtsey of a great all-round display from Team Colombo after setting a target of 284 at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium. 

Team Colombo’s innings was solidified with a crucial contribution from the Royalist Ahan Wickramasinghe who remained unbeaten after a 73-ball 78. That was the only half century recorded for the match and a few contributions from top order and lower order carried the total to 283.

In reply, Team Dambulla openers were sent back to the pavilion before adding any runs by left arm seamer Praveen de Silva and Nalandian Chamindu Wijesinghe. Dambulla innings crumbled under pressure and never got going after that early struggle. Thomian Ravindu Rasantha was the only one to go past 30 and De Silva completely dominated the opposition with 4 wickets. 

Dambulla innings ended on 136 without completing the 50 overs and Team Colombo opened their points account with a 147 run win.
