Rajan openers Kavishka Dissanaike and Ruchira Pupulewatte made certain that there was no escape route for the Anthonians by rushing to 103 without loss after their bowlers had bowled out the opponents for 174.
Left arm spinner Venuka Galahitiyawa, who is bowling well once again, was the pick of the bowlers. He took four wickets, as did Ashmita Rajapakse.
Kavishka Dissanaike and Ruchira Pupulewatte batted freely and were in complete control during their century opening stand.
The Anthonians were indebted to Kanishka Ukgalpaya, Lakjeeva Wijebandara and Dilan Bandara who gave the total a boost by making thirties.
