In a resounding four-wicket win for SLC Bules, Praveen Jayawickrama emerged as a knight in shining armour as his three-for helped the side continue the winning run in SLC Invitational T20 League 2022.
Set on the run-chase of mere 116 runs, the Blues suffered from regular jitters, albeit, scoring at an above-par pace till the halfway mark. With the 10th over coming to an end, the score read 72/3.
Notwithstanding Milan Rathnayake's three-wicket haul, Ashen Bandara weathered the storm after skipper Kariyawasa Asalanka's dismissal, ensuring the team did not press the panic button.
While Asalanka with his 29-run knock came handy at the top in chasing the modest target, Bandara's unbeaten 23-ball 27 helped the side sit pretty throughout in their pursuit of 116 runs.
As many as nine balls and four wickets remained after Kasun Rajitha's boundary sealed the match for Asalanka and Co.
