Still with a day to play, heading towards a draw...
Colombo 423( M Vandort 134, N Randika 89, D Ranawerra 65, C Kapugedera 55, S Senanayake 4/140, K Lokuarachchi 4/88) & 6/246( N Randika 97, J Mubarak 64, S Senanatake 5/76) against Sinhalese 130 (N Randika 6/18)
This match is leading towards a draw as Colombo seem only interested in batting practise, as they are already in the semis. Probably a good think with Kapugedera 22 not out. Vandort got his first hundred of the season batting at his new postion of No 4. I found out that Colombo have been considering dropping him down the order for a long time, due to his problems with the swinging ball. But with young all rounder Nisal Randika his feet with the bat lately they decided to take the punt and drop him down the order. The form of Randika has been the real talking point of this match, scoring two 50s in his first match as opener this season and taking a 6-fer with the ball. There are talks that he could be pushing for a national spot as the 2nd spinner and out and out all rounder. But probably needs to get his batting average around 30 its mid 20s ATM. His also yet to score a FC hundred, would have been gutted at missing out of it by 3 runs.
The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)
