THISARA PERERA (List A) 2021
It was a rain-hit game and the match got reduced to 41 overs. In the last over of the first innings, Thisara Perera unleashed his power as his team finished on 318/3.
The match ultimately got washed out due to rain interruption. The Bloomfield cricket team would have been delighted due to the abrupt ending of the game as they got reduced to 73/6 while chasing a mammoth total.
