Scorecard

The star-studded Colts CC women's team led by Sri Lanka cricketer Sandamali Dolawatte won the domestic women's Twenty20 final, beating Kurunegala Youth CC by five wickets at the NCC grounds on Wednesday.

Kurunegala Youth, who chose to bat, were all at sea against the right-arm medium-pace deliveries of Sri Lanka bowlers Chamani Seneviratne and Hiruka Fernando; they grabbed seven wickets between them. Kurunegala's paltry total of 86 was largely due to a fighting, unbeaten half-century off 50 balls (five fours) from Chaturani Gunawardene.

Colts, in their reply, also struggled for runs, slipping to 42-5, before Sripali Weerakkody and Udeshika Prabodhani shared an unbroken 45 run-stand to steer their team through.

Colts and Kurunegala came through the group stages unbeaten, winning all three matches and qualified to play in the final. Eight clubs participated in the tournament. For Kurunegala, it was the second final they had lost in the 2009-10 season. They were beaten by five wickets by Marians Ladies in the women's limited-overs final.
