Ashain takes 10 on birthday to seal 4th win for the Josephians

Singer U19 Division I Cricket Tournament 2019/20

Nine matches in the Singer Schools ‘Under 19 Division 1’ Two Day Cricket Tournament 2019/20 were conducted today (10), as St Joseph’s College made the headlines by securing a win against Mahinda College, Galle

After setting a challenging first innings score of 302 thanks to a Lakshan Gamage special (118), the Josephians knocked over Mahinda College twice during the day for 144 and 213 (f/o), despite the valiant fight back from Sri Lanka U19 opener Navod Paranawithana (58) and Sandev Induwara (22, 83).

Antonians win in Kandy – Lakshan and Navod star in Galle

Paranavithana made a good comeback, taking a 5-fer in the 1st innings apart from the half century following the gloomy World Cup he had in South Africa. The Josephians had to chase only 56 to their 4th victory in the tournament as they did it in style inside 10 overs.

The victory was made possible by extraordinary bowling effort from the birthday boy Ashain Daniel, who also returned to Sri Lanka after the World Cup, as he secured a 10-fer in the contest.

In another game in Kandy, the Nalanda-Dharmaraja battle heated up after the home team was bowled out to 164, granting the visitors a 45-lead. However, the game ultimately ended as a draw. 

The Nalandians managed to put together a score of 213 for the second innings, but the course was made difficult by Rajan’s vice captain Upendra Warnakulasooriya, who was responsible for 7 of the 10 wickets in the 2nd innings of Nalanda College.
