Nondescripts Cricket Club 254 for 4 (20 overs, Kulasekara 98, Sangakkara 93) beat Sri Lanka Air Force Sports Club 103 for 9 (20 overs, Rizan 21, Chandana 3-18) by 142 runs
A new world record in the Twenty20 competition was set at Colombo on Sunday between Nondescripts Cricket Club and Sri Lanka Air Force Sports Club. Nondescripts, batting first, rattled up an astonishing 245 for 4 in their 20 overs. Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara, who recently represented the World XI in the one-day matches of the ICC Super Series, clobbered 93 from 49 balls. Kosela Kulasekara, the 20-year-old, matched his senior partner in striking 98, including eight sixes, from the same number of balls. The Air Force Sports Club were never in the hunt, with Upul Chandana taking 3 for 18 from four overs to take Nondescripts to a thumping 142-run victory.
