The Peterites successfully chased their opponent’s total of 170 runs and reached their target at the end with 15 overs to spare. Dashing opener Shehan Fernando spearheaded their run chase with a sparkling half century as St Peter’s College reached 175 for 3 from 35 overs.
Skipper Shehan Fernando made his intentions clear from the start as he launched a fierce attack on the Trinity bowlers while completing his half century from just 48 deliveries inclusive of two sixes and half a dozen boundaries.
