459

Two traditional encounters of the U19 Schools Cricket Tournament worked off today (04th June) at Mount Lavinia and Moratuwa.    

Ananda College registered a comprehensive 7-wicket win over St. Sebastian’s College in their traditional encounter, which worked off today at Moratuwa.

Having been asked to follow on, St. Sebastian’s College showed a better batting display in the second innings after a poor show in the first essay, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Ananda College recording a convincing win over them.

Shakthi Udara was the star performer with the ball for Ananda College as he bagged a match bag of 10 wickets for 82 runs, demolishing Sebastians’ batting lineup.

The other traditional encounter which was played between S. Thomas College and Thurstan College ended in a draw today at Mount Lavinia. S. Thomas College managed to take honors in the drawn encounter as Gunaratnam Caniston’s brilliant bowling spell (5/33) helped them to restrict the Thurstan batting lineup to just 90 runs in the first innings.
