Rain ruins Trinity’s bid for outright win over Petes

  • School Cricket Review

Trinity College put up a fine all round performance to take major honours in their rain hit inter school under 19 cricket tournament match against St. Peter’s College which ended in a draw at the Asgiriya Stadium in Kandy on Saturday.

The Trinitians after piling up a good first innings total of 239 runs produced an inspired performance on the field to skittle the Peterites for a paltry 120 all out and had the satisfaction of enforcing the follow on.

The main destroyer was Charith Sudharaka  with figures of three wicket  for 10 runs whilst Wickremanayake followed up his first innings half century with an excellent return of two wickets for 9 to leave the Peterites innings in total disarray

The Peterites batting a second time were in deep trouble when they lost half of their side for just 25 runs and were staring at certain defeat when the rain intervened and brought a premature end to the game.

Lakshan Jayasinghe was the star bowler for the hosts grabbing claiming three wickets for one just run to rattle the Peterites.

Scores:                                                                                                                                                                            Trinity: 239 in 55.3 overs (Dinuk Wickramanayake 55, Ron Chandraguptha 48, Rajitha Jayathunge 44, Lakshan Jayasinghe 24. Julain De Zylva 5/69, Ranitha Liyanarachchi 2/35)                                                       St. Peter’s: 120 in 46.4 overs (Dushan Hemantha 33, Chemila Obesekara 22, Charith Sudharaka 3/10, Dinuk Wickramanayake 2/9)  and 25/5 in 28.2 overs (Shasheen Fernando 12, Lakshan Jayasinghe 3/1)

Holy Cross strike back to gain narrow first innings win over Anthonians

Rain also intervened in the only other game in Kandy as St. Anthony’s College and Holy Cross College Kalutara figured in a low scoring draw in their inter school under 19 cricket tournament fixture which concluded at Katugastota yesterday.

Holy Cross College who were dismissed for 111 runs in their first innings hit back strongly and bowled out their opponents for just 108 runs with Sachith Fernando (4/35) causing the damage.


Holy Cross: 111 in 56.3 overs (Chathun Kamesh 31, Tiran Asanga 26 n.o.  Nimesh Gunasinghe 3/22, Sachin Bulathsinghala 3/25, Charles Praveen 3/33) and 70/4 (Layan Mendis 56 n.o. Nimesh Gunasinghe 2/1, Madhuranga Udapola 2/15)

St. Anthony’s: 108 in 29 overs (Sachin Bulathsinghala 27, Sachith Fernando 4/35, Shanaka Cooray 2/8, Nisal Chandiak 2/12, Chathun Kamesh 2/29)
