Dharmaraja scored a massive 213 run win over Kegalu Vidyalaya in their limited overs match at Lake View.
The Kegalu MV bowlers were given a hammering by the Rajan top order players. Openers Rameesh Ranasinghe and Kavishka Dissanaike set the pace with an opening stand of 83. Kavinda Ratnayake continued the agony by hitting a half-century. Deeshan Gunasinghe, like Dissanaike entered the forties. Ranasinghe’s 71 was the top score.
In reply, the visitors found the left-arm-spin of Venake Galahitiyawa too much to handle and were all out for a modest 95. They failed to make use 15.4 overs.
