The second quarter-final went in favour of Hayleys ‘B’, who beat Waters Edge.

The weather improved on Sunday and the two bottom half quarter-finals were played to a finish at the MCA grounds.

Asiri Hospitals shed little sweat on reaching their target off 38 balls with inform bats man Koshan Jayawickrama once again carrying his bat out with a punishing 55 not out.
