Seenigama Combined Schools scored 231 runs in their 120 run win over Up Country Combined Schools for the loss of just two wickets.

St. Josephs College who are participating for the first time in the tournament won their match against Jaffna Central College by 32 runs.

A notable result of today’s tournament was Moneragala Combined Schools team beating Zahira College by 5 wickets with 34 balls remaining.
In the ladies tournament there was a nail biting finish as the Seenigama Ladies lost to Matale Ladies by 2 wickets in the last over of the day’s play.
