2002–03 Championship[edit]

On 6 March 2003 Moors SC took on Bloomfield Cricket and Athletic Club in the Premier League final. Moors SC captain Rangana Herath won the toss and chose to field first. Bloomfield were dismissed for 121 with Nandika Ranjith taking 5 for 39. An unbeaten 62 from Amila Wettasinghe helped his side gain a 67 run first innings lead having at one stage been at 5/96. Ranjith took another 5 wicket haul as Bloomfield were all out in their second inning for 172. This left Moors SC chasing 106 for their maiden trophy and after losing their first 4 wickets for just 16 they crawled home to win by 1 wicket. Bathiya Perera top scored with 31 and Thamara Abeyratne was the hero with 25 not out from number 9.

The man of the match award went to Nandika Ranjith for his 10 wickets while Chandika Hathurusingha was named as player of the tournament.
