Skipper TM Dilshan smashed an unbeaten 66 off just 39 balls to help Basnahira Cricker Dundee post 129-3 in their allotted 13 overs against Kandurata Warriors at the SLPL match being played at R. Premadasa Stadium a short while ago.
Dilshan hit seven fours and three sixes to power Basnahira to a challenging total of 129-3 after being put into bat by Kandurata in a match that was reduced to 13 overs per-side after rain delayed the start.
Basnahira lost opener Daniel Smith in the opening over and they were further hampered after losing Dimuth Karunaratne at 23.
But Dilshan took the pressure on to his shoulders to influence his side with a useful 60-run partnership with Brad Hodge who clobbered 27 off 20 balls.
Fast bowler Sohail Tanvir was effective during the opening spell and finished with figures of 3 for 31.
Kandurata Warriors led by Thilan Samaraweera won the toss and elected to field.
The match began nearly two hours after the scheduled time and the match will be played as 13-overs per side.
