Bloomfield 225 for 6 (Dilshan 107*, Dissanayake 46) beat Nondescripts 221 (Pushpakumara 47, Wijesiriwardene 4-25) by four wickets
Tillakaratne Dilshan celebrated his selection for Sri Lanka's tour of New Zealand with a sparkling unbeaten 107 to guide Bloomfield to a four-wicket win over Nondescripts in the final of the Premier Limited Over Tournament at the Sinhalese Sports Club.
Bloomfield had been in trouble on 16 for 3 - the recalled Sanath Jayasuriya making only 5 - before Dilshan and Shanuka Dissanayake (46) consolidated with a fourth-wicket stand of 108. Dilshan struck ten fours in a perfectly-paced innings to secure the win with five balls remaining.
Nondescripts, who were put in, struggled to build on a good start, losing their last eight wickets for 107 runs, including their last four for one run as Omesh Wijesiriwardene polished off the tail with 4 for 25.
