The high-riding MAS Unichela team was made to eat humble pie by LB Finance, as they suffered their first defeat at the ongoing 25th Singer MCA Premier League 2018.

Unbeaten MAS Unichela, playing their last match in the league after winning eight matches on the trot, met their Waterloo at Moratuwa on Wednesday. 

LB Finance ruined Unichela’s clean record by beating them by five wickets.

Now LB Finance, with five wins and three defeats and one match in hand, move up the ladder in the league table to No. 4 behind Unichela, Commercial Credit and John Keells. 

Unichela - 135 (31) (T.M. Sampath 57, T. Sumanasiri 23, Isuru Udana 2/29, C. Sudharaka 2/32, R. Weerasinghe 2/24, Angelo Perera 2/20)

 LBF – 136/5 (26.4) (Priyamal Perera 65 not out, T.M. Dilshan 2/28)

There are three more games remaining in the league stage: Teejay Lanka vs. Sampath Bank tomorrow at Khettarama; John Keells vs. Teejay Lanka on 8 October at Moratuwa and LB Finance vs. Sampath Bank on 9 October at MCA.
