Piyumal, Shehan hog limelight with notable feats

Under 19 Division I Cricket Round Up

by Reemus Fernando

A captain’s knock of 96 runs by Janitha Shehan and a five-wicket haul by Kavisha Piyumal were among the highlights as Tier ‘A’ and ‘B’ matches of the Under 19 Division I Limited Overs cricket tournament continued on Wednesday.

Janitha Shehan almost single handedly guided Gurukula to victory with an unbeaten knock (96n.o. in 114 balls, 9x4s) as he anchored the batting line up to reach a target of 188 runs in the penultimate over. They were 78 for four wickets at one stage.

At Katugastota, left-arm spinner Kavisha Piyumal produced his best figures in a limited overs match as St. Anthony’s, registered a three wickets victory against St. Sebastian’s, Moratuwa according to the Parabola Method.

The match which commenced as a 41 overs-a-side encounter saw the visitors being bowled out for 117 runs as Piyumal impressed with a five-wicket haul. His figures read 7.1-0-14-5.

In their essay, the home team had a revised target of 114 runs to chase in 39 overs and they achieved it in the 26th over with three wickets to spare. That was the third victory registered by St. Anthony’s. However, despite the victory they will remain in the fourth position in the points table behind St. Sebastian’s, who have four victories under their belt.

Wesley will remain in the second place in their group after registering their fourth win of the tournament yesterday. They beat D.S. Senanayake by five wickets after Shakesh Minon lead their attack with a four-wicket haul to contain the visitors to 159 runs at Campbell Park.

At Campbell Place, Nalanda were reduced to 126 runs before Royal pulled off a three wickets win to remain on top of the table in Tier ‘A’ Group ‘A’. Royal have four victories against their name now after six outings.

In a Tier ‘B’ match played at Kadirana, St. Joseph Vaz’s pulled off an exciting two wickets victory over St. Sylvester’s as their ninth wicket pair kept their cool to add an unfinished stand of 34 runs to win with three balls to spare.

In the other Tier ‘B’ match, a century by Amitha Sandeepa (121 in 131 balls, 11x4s, 2x6s) was in vain for St. Anthony’s Wattala as Mahinda restricted them to 259 runs to win by 17 runs at Galle. For Mahinda, Shehan Hasaranga hogged the limelight cracking 69 runs in 31 balls. His hurricane knock included three fours and seven sixes.
