Rain played spoilsport during the Lanka Premier League match between Dambulla Giants and Galle Gladiators in Colombo as the clash was called-off. Batting first, Dambulla had a decent start to the proceedings as Dickwella and Munaweera who had walked in at number three put up a 40-run stand for the second wicket. 

But Munaweera’s dismissal saw a few wickets falling in quick succession leaving the Giants struggling at 79/5. 

Shanaka and Mendis then came in for the rescue as the two batters stitched a partnership of 45 runs for the sixth wicket. While Shanaka scored a 32-ball 37, Menids remained unbeaten at 33 off 23 during the course. 

Noor Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers after he returned with figures of 2/24 in 4 overs while Samit Patel produced an economical spell as he picked up one wicket at the cost of 19 runs in 4 overs. 

Later, the Gladiators had scored 18 runs in 1.2 overs when the rain put a halt on the play and the match was eventually abandoned. Kusal Mendis was unbeaten at 15 off 5 while Danushka Gunathilaka was at 3 off 3 when the game was stopped. 

Gladiators will now Kandy Warriors while Dambulla Giants will lock horns with Colombo Stars on Saturday in Colombo.
