Kandurata Province set up a final showdown with Basnahira Province while outplaying Ruhuna by seven wickets in the SLC Inter Provincial limited overs cricket tournament second semifinal match worked off under lights at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Kehattarama yesterday.
Ruhuna electing to bat first after winning the toss failed to capitalize and were bundled out for just 141 runs in 40.2 overs with opening bowler Nuwan Kulasekera doing the early damage.
The spinners Muttiah Muralitharn and Sachith Pathirana then added the finishing touches while sharing five wickets between them. Only five boundaries were scored in the entire Ruhuna innings with opener Upul Tharanga stroking four and Kaushal Silva stroking one.
