U19 Inter-Schools Division 1 Two Day Tournament 2023/24

Six games in the U19 Division I schools cricket tournament commenced today across the island. It was a day largely dominated by the batters, with three centuries being recorde

The skipper of Royal College, Colombo, who had been out of form until today, regained his groove by scoring a scintillating hundred at Reid Avenue against St. Thomas’ College, Matara. His dashing knock included 9 fours and 2 sixes. With the big match approaching, this will undoubtedly be a huge boost for the Royal camp, with the skipper returning to his usual form.

Youngsters Kithma Withanapathirana and Kenul De Zoysa impressed by scoring centuries for Ananda College, Colombo, in their game against St. Joseph Vaz College, Wennappuwa. The only notable performance from the Vazians was Himal Ravihansa’s 3 wickets; otherwise, the entire day belonged to the boys from Maradana.
