The spinners benefitted from the pitch without a question, but they weren’t really tested. As Colombo fell apart outside, Shamsi, Prasanna, and Shakib had it all to themselves. Not to mention Kumara’s initial surge, which knocked Nissanka and Babar off their feet to set the tone. Surprisingly, there were 2 LBWs and 7 bowled dismissals.

Colombo is no more part of the league. Galle not only qualified but also moved up to number two. They will now compete against Dambulla, who finished first in the standings.
