Half tons by Nuwanidu Fernando and Nipun Deshan and a five wicket haul by Tashik Perera helped Western Province South outclass Central Province by 106 runs to record their successive win of the Under 19 inter-provincial limited over tournament played at the NCC ground yesterday.

The duo’s half ton helped Western Province South taking first lease of the wicket to make a modest score of 203 and later Tashik’s five-wicket haul enabled them to bundle out Central Province for a paltry 83.

Western Province North too recorded their second successive with a comfortable seven-wicket win over North Central Province in the match played at Braybrooke Place.
