Aloysians thrash Rajans

 

December 25, 2015

The visiting St. Aloysius’ side, ably led by Gihan Niroshan, inflicted a crushing innings and 25-run win over Dharmaraja in the latter’s backyard.

The Aloysians had set the stage for this triumph by establishing their ascendancy on the first day. They continued in the same vein on day two, with batting hero Ashen Bandara contributing an eye-catching
hundred which had nine four and three sixes. There were other good contributions from Nirusha Guruge, Ravindu Sanjana and Dinusha Kariyawasam.

The Rajans were shot out for 86 in their second knock, with three batsmen entering double figures. Pacie Sajith Sankalpa bagged five for 23 and softened up the Rajan batting.

Dharmaraja’s skipper Venuka Galahitiyawa captured a five for, but in a losing cause.

Scores:

Dharmaraja 197 and 86 in 40.4 overs (Lahiru Samarakoon 19, Asmitha Rajapakse 13 n.o., Venuka Galahitiyawa 12; Sajith Sankalpa 5-23, Gihan Niroshan 2-5, Pramodaya Gamage 2-17)

St. Aloysius’ (159-3 contd.) 308 in 75.3 overs (Ashen Bandara 111, Nirusha Gamage 51, Ravindu Sanjana 32, Dinusha Kariyawasam 30, Venuka Galahitiyawa 5-106, Ruchira Pupulewatte 3-94).
