Thanks for the update Nadun.

Thanks for the update Nadun. Angelo Mathews cracked a career best knock of 270. Is he in the current squad? Same Matthews who played against India recently no?

In my opinion Vandy is righly dropped.

Since Indian tour he is out of sort. He is vulnerable against the moving ball. He didn't do well in the domestic matches also where as P'vithana was in top form.

Second round matches has started today.

Details of the first round matches.

Angelo Mathews' gradual rise on the domestic circuit continued when he steered Basnahira North to a comprehensive innings-and-56-run win against Kandurata at the SSC during the opening weekend of the inter-provincial tournament.

Mathews' 270, coupled with Ian Daniel's composed 116 helped Basnahira North run up a massive score of 563 for 8, after dismissing Kandurata for 262 in the first innings. The pair shared a 214-run stand for the third wicket after they lost two early wickets for 33. Faced with a huge deficit of 301, Kandurata folded tamely for 245 against the pace and spin combination of Lasantha Manoj and Muthumudalige Pushpakumara, who took nine wickets between them.

The other notable performance was the hat-trick by Basnahira North left-arm spinner Shanuka Dissanayake in the first innings when he dismissed Jeevan Mendis, captain Kaushalya Weeraratne and Sachith Pathirana in the 49th over.

Tharanga nearing his hundred. And Mathews has gone past 50. I am very impressed with him.
