SLGY vs SLBL in Sri Lanka Invitational T20 League: Match abandoned due to rain- Nuwanindu Fernando scored a half-century and Charith Asalanka scored a half-century to help the Blues score 157 against the Blues in the final over due to rain. The 11th match also ended without a draw today (22nd). Both teams received one bonus point each on this condition.

The Blues and the Reds will have a tough fight over who will be Grace’s opponents in the final on the 24th. Since the Blues are ahead of the Reds in terms of scoring speed, a win over the Blues on the night alone will be enough for the Reds to reach the final. But the only question is whether the weather will get better. The Blues, led by Dhananjaya de Silva, will advance to the final if the night match is interrupted by rain.

It rained before the end of the fourth over of the Blues innings and the Blues batsmen were 33 for one. According to the Duckworth-Lewis method, at least 5 overs must have been bowled to get a result, but the match was postponed due to the feeling that the match could not be completed on time. At 5.10 the judges proceeded to give up.

The rain fell so fast that the stadium staff could not even pull off the raincoats. Due to this situation, the stadium staff was able to properly close only the area around the stadium, but the majority of the employees worked hard to close the other parts of the stadium.

The Blues, led by Dhananjaya de Silva, won the toss and elected to bowl first. But Charith Asalanka, the No. 3 batsman, scored 57 off 44 balls with three sixes and three fours, while Nuwanindu scored an unbeaten 50 off 36 balls with two sixes and three fours. The opportunity arose for the Grace team to raise its head. Charith, who batted most confidently from the moment he came to bat, scored his second half-century today.

Nuwanindu, who entered the field in the 10th over, had scored only 16 runs in the first 20 overs. Wise failed to build so much confidence in the beginning, but in the end he managed to build up enough confidence. Nuwanindu needed 10 runs for his half-century in the last over sent by Kalana Perera and Nuwanindu won the toss and elected to field. This was Nuwanindu’s first-ever half-century in the tournament.
