The Rajans recovered from a bad game against Trinity and took it out on the Sylvestrians whom they beat by 127 runs in their Under-17 Division I match at Lake View.
Five front-liners contributed substantially towards Dharmaraja’s commanding total of 245 for nine.
Consistent run getter Sashmika Kiriella led the way with a well compiled half century. Seniors Dayananda and Samararatne also pulled their weight.
Isuru Umayangana was the best of the bowlers. He was quite economical too.

Nimesha Wijesinghe top scored with a neat 44. Chandula Jayakody and Nishantha Jayawardena chipped in with double figure scores.
