- Galle Cricket Club scored their lowest List A score of 69 yesterday, after a superb bowling display by the Bloomfield pacer Imran Khan (4/14), who achieved his best List A bowling figures in his career. Right arm medium pacer Madhawa Warnapura provided ample support with a career best figure of 3/10. Galle CC’s previous lowest list A score was 90 which came against Sebastianites Cricket and Athletic Club in 2003/04.
- Nondescripts Cricket Club’s (NCC) all-rounder Farveez Maharoof had only two List A 5 wicket hauls before the beginning of this year’s domestic limited over series. However, after his 5/23 against Colts, he took another fifer against Ragama yesterday, when he picked up 5 for 33. These two spells are his 2nd and 3rd best List A spells after his 6/14 against West Indies in the 2006 Champions Trophy.
