The Dharmaraja Under 17 team routed their Big Match opponents by ten wickets in their Division One match played at Lake View.
Batting, on winning the toss, the Kingswood lads were bowled out for a terribly inadequate 100 runs. Mihira Hettiarachchi, Nimsara Alahakoon and Mahesan Ranasinghe were the only batsmen to make some impression. Spinners Tishan Herath and Upendra Warnakulasuriya together with pacie Anjana Dikkumbura did the damage.
The Rajan openers Janith Gunatunga and Janidu Yapa strolled to the target in less than half the allotted overs. Consistent Janith Gunatunga reached his half century. He had four fours.
Dharmaraja complete their first round games with five wins. Their only loss was to Trinity.
