Kavinda De Mel carries Cambrians to Quarter Finals

Gurukula College managed to qualify for the quarter finals in one of the pre-quarter finals, knocking last year’s finalists, S. Thomas’ College, out of the tournament.

Gurukula College managed to add 228/6 for the 1st innings, thanks to their lower order and Praveen Nimesh, who scored a gutsy 72 in reply to opposition’s 322/9.

Gurukula College sneaked through to the quarter-finals on the basis of bonus points.

Nalandian Avishka Perera, who has already obtained over 1000 runs in this season, manufactured another brilliant innings to take his college past the skilled St. Sebastian’s College in the 1st innings. His 117 guided Nalanda College to 305, earning them the first innings victory and a place in the quarter finals.

The Trinity-De Mazenod battle concluded as yet another draw, but the fight for the 1st innings victory was won by the Kandyans, who bundled out the opposition for 174. Uvindu Wimaladharma, who was responsible for 5 of the De Mazenod wickets, was the star of the show. Trinity College qualified for the quarter finals.
