Dilruwan 10 gives Colts victory
Dilruwan Perera's 10-wicket match haul set up Colts Cricket Club's nine-wicket win against Sri Lanka Air Force Sports Club in Katunayake. SLASC, batting first, could only muster 107 as Dilruwan and Sachith Pathirana picked up five wickets apiece to run through the line up in 32.3 overs.
Colts then built an 108-run lead, thanks to Shehan Fernando's 73 at the top which lifted the team to 215. SLASC would've hoped to fare better in their second essay, but once again Dilruwan finished with 5 for 34 to dismiss the team for 151, meaning that Colts needed just 44 for victory. Colts needed just 7.1 overs to overhaul that paltry total and in the process, completed their first win of the season.
