Dambulla Viiking defeats Colombo Kings: It was the Dambulla Viiking that came out on top after defeating Colombo Kings by 28 runs. The Dambulla Viiking won the toss and chose to bat first.

Colombo Kings’ captain Angelo Mathews was happy to bowl first and thought that the rain might play a part in the game so it is good to know the score you are chasing.

The Dambulla Viiking got off to a very poor start as they saw both of their openers get out in the first 2 overs, scoring 1 run each. Tharanga and Samit Patel came in at 1st and 2nd down respectively to stable the innings.

It was Dasun Shanak who came out after Tharanga was sent back to the pavilion by Russell. He played beautifully and scored 56 off 34 balls. The Dambulla Viiking ended their innings by scoring 175 runs in 20 overs.

The Colombo Kings got off to a good start as their opener Laurie Evans scored 59 in just 33 balls but Dinesh Chandimal and Thikshila de Silva did not trouble the scoreboard much. They got out at 0 and 5 respectively.

After Laurie Evans was bowled out by Pulina Tharanga, wickets kept coming in for the Dambulla Viiking. The Colombo Kings could only score 149 in 20 overs.

Samit Patel, Malinda Pushpakumara, Anwar Ali, and Pulina Tharanga got 2 wickets each for the Kings. While Isuru Udana got 3 wickets for the Viiking.
