The wet pitch and wet outfield, gloomy weather and the drizzle fall in the morning made J’pura and Pera cricket encounter delayed and shortened the battle to 45 overs per side. Finally, when the sun made its appearance to the UoM ground the match kicked off. J'pura being the previous year's champion showed potential to glory. But surely the energized and spirited Pera players wouldn’t give chances to their opponents.
