Fast bowler Himesh Ramanayake, son of former Sri Lanka international Champaka, took four wickets.

In reply, Sri Lanka U19s made 228 for 5 in 84 overs with Ushan hitting 112 off 245 with 13 fours and a six. Charith Asalanka contributed 37 coming in at No 3. For the visitors, offspinner Mehedy Hasan took two wickets.
