KIOC won the toss and elected to bat. Skipper Dinesh and prolific scorer Maanik Nath took a while to settle down but once they got the eye in, they tore into the Sri Lankan attack scoring at will. Maanik was the more aggressive scoring 78 not out off just 62 balls inclusive of 16 well struck boundaries. Dinesh remained unbeaten on 72 with the help of 13 fours.
Marian Cooray Cricket School started off well but the left-arm spinners Bharadwaj and Vignesh struck in tandem and with Maanik Nath chipping in with two crucial wickets, the Sri Lankan outfit collapsed from 102 for four to 119 all out in 22.1 overs leaving KIOC comfortable winners by 57 runs.
