Review: Clinical Ananda routs Trinity by innings

February 8, 2017 · Leave a Comment

By Chris Dhambarage

Ananda College produced their best performance for the current season as they trounced Trinity College outright in a high profile Inter-Schools Under-19 cricket encounter worked off at the Pallekele Stadium in Kandy.

This was a clinical performance by the Anandians as they completely dominated the proceedings from the start and eventually went on to wrap up the game by an innings and 104 runs with plenty of overs to spare.

The most significant fact was that the Anandians were performing away from home but yet they were able to outsmart the home side in all departments of the game with a fine all-round effort.

The Anandians really enjoyed the conditions on both days of the match as they made life difficult for the Trinitianswith their aggressive batting and through some penetrative bowling.

In fact, Ananda made their intentions very clear from the start and were quite positive in their approach towards the game as they hammered over 300 runs in the first innings at a rate of almost six runs per over.

Left-hander Sahan Suraweera led the way with a magnificent century while Kavishka Anjula and Dushan Hettige provided the back up support with useful contributions.

The Anandians continued their dominance on the field with some splendid bowling as they bowled out the Trinitians for just 102 runs with Chamika Gunasekera and Asel Sigera capturing three wickets each.

In fact, Sigera was in tremendous form in the second innings as he ended up with a six-wicket haul that send the Trinitians crashing to 102 after being forced to follow-on.

DSS vs Zahira

D. S. Senanayake College came from behind with a tremendous performance to beat Zahira College outright by seven wickets in their Inter-Schools Under-19 Cricket Tournament match played at Reid Avenue.

The game of course turned into a low-scoring contest as Zahira’smodest total of 127 was good enough for them to snatch a close first innings lead.

However, D. S. Senanayake College fought back magnificently through their bowlers and succeeded in dismissing their opponents for the second time in the game.

All-rounder Vihan Gunasekera played a key role in this victory for D. S. Senanayake as he turned things around with his best effort for the current season.

The dynamic off-spinner produced a destructive spell of bowling as he claimed seven wickets to bundle out Zahira for a paltry 114 almost single handedly in the second innings.

Gunasekera then struck an unbeaten 40 and helped D. S. Senanayake College to reach their victory target for the loss of three wickets after having suffered an early setback during their run chase.

Thurstan vs St. Joseph Vaz

Thurstan College cruised to a comprehensive innings and 62-run outright victory over St. Joseph Vaz College Wennappuwa in their Inter-Schools Under-19 Cricket Tournament match played at Thurstan Grounds.

Season campaigner CharanaNanayakkara opened the gates for a Thurstan victory by claiming six wickets as the visitors were shot out for a mere 82 runs in their first innings.

He then went on to prove his all-round potential by compiling a solid half century as Thurstan build up a huge match winning first innings lead.

Dharmaraja vs Nalanda

Nalanda College had to settle for a draw as they took major honours in their Inter-Schools Under-19 Cricket Tournament match played at the Lake View Grounds in Kandy.

Nalanda’s hopes of recording their second successive outright win for the current season was dashed by some determined batting by the Rajans in their second innings.

In fact, Dharmaraja were facing defeat at one stage as they were dismissed for 225 and were forced to follow-on after Nalanda had piled up a massive 387 for nine.

However, the Dharmaraja batsmen put up some great resistance and frustrated the opposition for 63 overs as they eventually finished with a respectable 169 for eight.

Even then, Umeksha Dilshan had a superb game for the Nalandians claiming a five-wicket haul in the second innings after an impressive spell of bowling in the first innings.

But overall Nalanda will be quite disappointed as they were deprived of an outright victory even after their spectacular batting display where they rattled up an imposing 387 for nine in the first innings.

The visitors rallied around through a superb century from Kasun Sandaruwan while Lakshitha Rasanjana and Kalana Kaththiarachchi went on to complete two solid half centuries.

St. Sebastian’s vs St. Benedict’s

St. Sebastian’s College dominated their Inter-Schools Under-19 cricket encounter against St. Benedict’s College which ended in a draw at Moratuwa.

The Sebastianites of course had a successful outing as they had the satisfaction of enforcing the follow-on after bowling out their opponents for just 98 in the first innings.

However, the Benedictines fought back well in their second innings to deprive their opponents of an outright victory while scoring 212 for six with Maleesha Seneviratne leading from the front.

St. Peter’s vs Royal

St. Peter’s College and Royal College shared the honours in their Inter-Schools Under-19 cricket encounter which ended in a draw at Bambalapitiya.

However, Royal had the satisfaction of overtaking their opponents’ first innings total thanks to a fine century from HimeshRamanayake who held the innings together with a determined performance.

Earlier, the Peterites struggled for runs and were restricted to 235 for nine despite two solid half centuries from Lakshina Rodrigo and Vinul Gunawardena.

By M. Shamil Amit

Right-arm pacie Ruchira Dangalla with a five-wicket haul and left-arm spinner Sakuntha Liyanage’s impressive bowling return of 3 for 0 wrecked the strong Mahanama College batting on day one to give Wesley College the edge in the under 19 inter-school cricket encounter played at Campbell Park.

The duo combined to skittle out Mahanama for a meager 60 runs with the innings lasting just 15.5 overs.

Later Ruchira made a top knock of 37 as he along with skipper Shamod Athulathmudali, Jason de Silva and Thisuraka Akmeemana helped Wesley in their turn to end with a modest score of 153. Mahanama batting the second time facing four overs ended the day on 19 for 0.

A knock of 114 by skipper Sajith Sameera helped Zahira make a formidable score of 279 against St. Sylvester’s College who ended the day on 58 for 1 at Gampola.

St. Joseph Vaz Wennappuwa, Thurstan College, St. Thomas’ Matara and Sashthrananda MMV Dehiwala have already taken first inning leads over De Mazenod, Nalanda, Carey and Piliyandala Central while Tissa MMV was set for an early outright against St, Thomas’ Matale.
