Dharmaraja on brink of victory

September 27, 2015

Left-arm leg-spinner Venuka Galahitiyawa, the Dharmaraja skipper,almost single-handedly brought his team to the brink of victory over Dharmapala at Lake View.
However, with the loss of over three hours of play, the Rajans didn’t have time for the killer punch.

Dharmapala were bowled out for 158 and, then, they were stunned and shocked as they tumbled to 35-7. Galahitiyawa was virtually unplayable in grabbing 4-7 in nine overs.

The Rajans who had a solid base (60-1) overnight, continued to make 220 – a lead of 62. Opener Ruchira Pupulewatte held the innings together with a composed knock of 74 (11 fours).

Off-spinner Mahima Weerakoon, Nishan Perera and pacie Pavan Peiris bagged 4, 3 and 3 respectively.

Scores:

Dharmapala 158 and 35-7 in 25.2 overs (Nishan Perera 15, Dulaj Egodage 10 n.o.; Venuka Galahitiyawa 4-7, Ashmita Rajapakse 2-6)

Dharmaraja (60-1 contd.) 220 in 73.3 overs (Ruchira Pupulewatte 74, Deshan Gunasinghe 27, Nivantha Herath 25; Mahima Weerakoon 4-44, Nishan Perera 3-29, Pavan Peiris 3-51).
