The 3rd match of the 137th Battle of The Blues started on a high note as Royal, playing till they reached a modest score of 328 for the loss of 7 wickets. Pasindu Sooriyabandara with a score of 123 and Malith Kariyawasam scoring 78, thus bringing Royal to a close margin with the Thomians thus declaring their innings.
However the Thomians were struggling with constant pressure dealt from the Royalist bowlers, having lost 3 wickets in the morning session. Thus it seems the Thomians are in a tight spot as of now. However the tide may change during the coming hours and it is quite impossible to say who will be the victor. Will it be Gold Or Black who takes the trophy home, only time may tell.
