Kandy Warriors romped to 131 for 5 wickets with Ravi Bopara leading the way with an unbeaten 34 followed by Tom Moores 28 and Charith Asalanka 21. It was a remarkable warrior-like all-round display by the Kandy side with full marks to the bowlers in breaking the back of the Gladiators dangerous batting line-up. Where some of the hitherto aces in the pack failed, Kusal Mendis top scored for Galle Gladiators with 44 while Samit Patel was unbeaten on 36.
