Opener Bhavanha Udangamuwe, who scored a sparkling 124, propelled Dharmaraja to an 185-run win over Sri Rahula in an Under 17 Division one match played at Lake View. Such was his mastery of the bowlers that he scored 104 of his 124 in boundaries (4 x 14, 6x8). The massive total of the Rajans was also due to a massive 161-run stand for the second wicket between Udangamuwe and Anushan Bandara (66), Kasun Gunawardena, Navinda Dilshan and Chetiya Ekanayake all came up with good supporting knocks.
In reply, Sri Rahula were bowled out for 155 which was 185 short of the target. Opener Madushan Paranavithane made 44 runs, while skipper Chamika Samaraskera and Krishantha Kumara also played well.
