112

Sri Lanka U19s were on the superior side today at Potchefstroom as they stormed past Scotland U19s in the plate semifinal as they defeated Scotland by 97 runs, qualifying to the plate final for the 2nd consecutive time.

Sri Lanka U19s skipper Nipun Dhananjaya won the toss and had no hesitation batting first at the North-West University Ground and the openers responded well with a 90 run-partnership. Wicket-keeper batsman Kamil Mishara was dismissed for 39 but his partner Navod Paranavithana went on to score a fine fifty including 4 boundaries and 1 six.

Last game centurion Ravindu Rashantha couldn’t fire this time as he fell off Jamie Cairne’s bowling for 21. The telling partnership of the innings was constructed by Ahan Wickramasinghe and Captain Dhananjaya for the 4th wicket, 103 runs off 93 balls, laying the foundation for a big score.

Wickramasinghe raced to a quickfire 59 while Dhananjaya mustered a run-a-ball 69 taking Sri Lanka to 277/6 after 50 overs.
