0 23

Dunith Wellalage, the young all-rounder, had a good all-round performance, taking 4 for 16 and scoring an unbeaten 52 in 55 balls with 2 fours and 2 sixes, enabling Colts CC to record a five-wicket win over Kurunegala YCC in their Major Clubs Limited Overs Cricket Tournament fixture played at Colts grounds yesterday.

Despite being part of the ODI squad without a chance to play in any Zimbabwe games, Wellalage showcased his potential brilliantly.

Leg-spinner Dhanushka Sandaruwan bowled well to pick up 5 for 29 as Negombo CC recorded a 3-wicket win over Ragama CC played at Moors grounds yesterday.

Ragama CC was bundled out for 116 while Chamath Gomez made an unbeaten 45, and leg spinner Dhanushka Sandaruwan played a crucial role in restraining Ragama CC while experienced Upul Indrasiri took 2 for 27. Negombo CC faced a challenge at 85 for 7 wickets after 32.2 overs, but Nishan Pieris and Upul Indrasiri’s resilient knocks of 34 and 14 respectively guided them to victory.

Bloomfield recorded a thrilling one-wicket win over NCC in their low-scoring game at Bloomfield grounds while skipper Nipun Karunanayake made a match-winning unbeaten half-century.

Meanwhile, Sebastianites and Colts CC from Group A secured spots in the semi-finals, along with SSC and Baduraliya SC, scheduled to be held on the 13th and 14th at NCC grounds.
