All-round Wellalage gives Joes edge on see-saw day

Singer Schools U19 Division 1 two-day final

1007
SJC vs STC

The pendulum kept swinging both ways in the Singer Schools U19 Division 1 two-day final, but St. Joseph’s had their noses slightly ahead when stumps were drawn on day 1.

The Thomians won the toss and opted to bat first as their skipper Sithara Hapuhinna himself decided to enjoy excellent batting conditions.

Hapuhinna hit the ball to all parts of the Royal College grounds in Colombo, as he raced to a century in the opening session.

The Thomians who had made scores in excess of 500 in their quarterfinal and semifinal, had set themselves up for another massive score against the Josephians.

The Josephian skipper Ashian Daniel got one to turn and bounce out of no where right after the break to have Hapuhinna caught at slip for 117 off just 127 balls, as the flood gates all of a sudden opened for the Thomians.

They lost their last 8 wickets from their on for just 49 runs, as the Josephians made a grand comeback into the match.

The chief tormentor was Dunith Wellalage who strangled the Thomians with his left arm spin, while he got good support from fellow spinners Daniel and Shalinda Senenviratne who capture two wickets apiece. Wellalage ended with figures of 5/40 after conceding 19 runs off his first two overs.

The Josephians lost Johanne De Zylwa early on in their reply before Dinal Anuradha and Sheran Fonseka steadied the ship to take the Josephians to 49/1.

A mix-up between the duo ended the stand as the Josephians lost 3/11 to be precariously placed at 60/4.

Dineth Jayakody and Dunith Wellalage made sure the Josephians had no further hiccups as they put on an unbroken stand of 60* runs, to take the Josephians to 120/4 at close – 96 runs away from the Thomians’ first innings score.
