Kamil Mishara’s century gives Sri Lanka U19 lead over Aussies

Australia U19 Tour of Sri Lanka U19 2018/19 | Youth Test – Day 2

The Sri Lanka U19 team put up a formidable performance against the Australia U19 team going past the 1st innings score compiled by the Aussies today. The 2nd day of the 3-day Youth Test was played at the SSC Grounds in Colombo.

The home openers resumed Sri Lanka’s 1st innings from 20 for no loss today in reply to Australia’s 269/9d. Left-hander Kamil Mishara and debutant Thaveesha Abhishek went on to bat for 21.2 more overs in the morning session putting up 93 runs for the opening wicket.

Right-hander Abhishek was the wicket to fall in the day as leg-spinner Tanveer Sangha got rid of him for 36 runs. Kamil Mishara, who scored a century in the 1st Youth ODI was then joined by Mohamed Shamaaz who also had a good series with the white ball.

The in-form duo added 84 steady runs for the 2nd wicket. The partnership was brought to an end unfortunately with Jarrod Freeman dismissing Zahirian Shamaaz for a well-made 43 runs. Shamaaz hit the only six of Sri Lanka’s innings during his 92-ball knock.

Kamil Mishara on the other end just kept on compiling runs as he reached the 2nd century of the tour. His innings came to an end after facing 235 deliveries. The Royalist who hails from Panadura stroked 17 boundaries for his 105. He was caught off Sangha just after Zak Evans dismissed Sri Lankan skipper Nipun Dananjaya for 20.

Sri Lanka’s most successful batsman in the Bangladesh series, Sonal Dinusha scored just 2 runs as he was caught behind to an Iain Carlisle delivery. He in fact made his first class debut for CCC recently and scored a gritty half century.

All-rounders Chamindu Wijesinghe and Sandun Mendis then helped Sri Lanka gain the lead as they together raised the home team from 223/5 to 279. Aussie skipper Baxter Holt took his third catch of the innings keeping wickets with the catch of Chamindu Wijesinghe off a Freeman delivery. Wijesinghe scored 39 runs in 55 deliveries.
