On Saturday the 5th of June Standard played a 35 over game vs Paris Zalmi Cricket Club, and after losing the toss Paris Zalmi were put in to bat. SAC’s opening bowlers bowled a very good spell of swing, causing Paris Zalmi to frequently lose wickets. After 10 overs, they were 4 wickets down for 19 runs. Changes of spell bought more line and length bowling which made things even tougher for the opposition to score, with off-spin accounting for 2 wickets before the innings was brought to a close on 138 runs in 31 overs. 
At the start of the SAC innings, both openers were lost for just 8 runs in the 3rd over which brought Mahesh and Tharanga to the middle, who guided the innings to a total of 50 runs in 10 overs. Tharanga with a quickfire 27 found the boundary with ease with some very good square cuts before he was bowled by a slower ball. Trevin (53 runs) joined Mahesh (44 runs) and guided SAC to victory scoring 141 runs in 18 overs.
The result – a 7 wicket victory for Standard!
