A fine all-round effort by Rajan skipper Nivantha Herath put his team in an unassailable position after Trinity were bowled out for 106 in their Under 17 Div. 1 match at Lake View.
However, to their disappointment, rain and bad light set in early after the Rajans had raced to 44-3 in a mere seven overs.
Sanogeeth Shanmuganathan was Trinity’s saviour making 36, which was far away their best score.
Herath bowled his medium pace effectively to bag four wickets. Off-spinner Gihan Vitharana joined the party by picking up 3-7.
It was Herath who led the charge with the bat, scoring an unbeaten 22.

Dharmaraja 44-3 in 7 overs (Nivantha Herath 22 n.o., Trevon Percival 2-23).
