Basnahira Province stormed into the final with a stunning 69 run victory over the defending champions Wayamba Province in their SLC Inter Provincial limited overs cricket tournament first semi-final match worked off under lights at the R. Premadasa Stadium yesterday.
Basnahira successfully defended their total of 221 for 9 by dismissing their opponents for just 152 runs in 38.2 overs.
The unlikely hero for Basnahira was part time spinner Dilruwan Perera who snapped up four wickets for 27 runs from eight overs.
He was well supported by paceman Chaminda Vaas who struck early while delivering two crucial blows during his opening spell.
