(Mora 121-10, Hirusha 44, Thenuwara 4-18 // SAU Nufail 44, THILINA 3-31) On a day that simply beggared belief, South Eastern University (SAU) tied with Mora in an incredible match in Moratuwa. Thilina Kasun was Mora's inspiration, producing a crucial hat trick on 23rd over to remove confidently looking Nufail and to turn the match from ending as a one-sided affair to a thrilling tie. The match was supposed to take place on Saturday but due to rain only 10 overs were bowled on that day but the remaining match was played out on this sunny Sunday morning.

It was around 6.30pm in the evening and the excitement of the jam packed stands of the gymnasium was palpable as the crowd waited for the beginning of the most anticipated finals of the MORA Smashes Tournament, Intermediate and Novices men’s and women’s Finals.
