SLUG-2016| No 1 Spot for Cricket, Still Remains for Grabs

As the SLUG’s cricket finals yet to be happened, it was fitting to see two teams actively pursuing victories. University of J’pura and University of Kelaniya playing tough yet ultimately fair cricket and allowing their skills to show their fellow mates why they should each be talked about as the winners in 2016 SLUG. Both squads have their stand-out performers, whilst others will be looking precariously over their shoulders after some individually underwhelming performances. The cricket series will come thick and bold in another six days’ (6th September) time at the finals and priorities should now lie there.
