Current Round - Stumps Day One Scores
CCC 3/246 (Ranawerra 65, Randika 89, Vandort 40* Kapugedera 23*) against SSC
Jehan Mubrak also plays for Colombo and he was dismissed for 17. Vandort been batting at four all season for Colombo for some reason. For Sinhalese Lokuarachchi has 1/48 of 17. There other big name bowler Dammika Prasad, former ODI player, has 0/41(11), he bowled 2nd change though.
Bloomfield 244 All Out (Gunaratne 50, Gangodawila 92, Weerakoon 5/50) against Colts 2/74 (Kalavitigoda 45)
Bloomfield are quite light for batsmen with quite a few away with the national team, only Ian Daniel and Thilina Kandamby (their captain) are the big name batsmen left. Weerakoon made the most of their light batting line up taking 5/50. Thilan Thushara took 2 wickets, with Angelo Matthews and Muthumudalige Pushpakumara taking a wicket a piece. These days both Matthews and Pushpakumara are playing more as batting all rounders.
Kalavitgoda former Sri Lankan Test Batsmen went after Nissanka, but he took the important wicket of Warnapura for 19, to finish with 1/24 off 3. Nissanka bowled 2nd change as he did in his last two games he played this season. He started as a change bowler for Bloomfield, before he made his national debut.
Moors 7/400 (Perera 74, Dilhara 178*, Hearth 55*, L Fernando 3/41
Well today was the day that young Sri Lanka all rounder Dilhara Lokuhettige came of age as a batsmen with a brillant 178 not out. For a while he has been talked about as a potential all rounder for Sri Lanka, but with a career average 21 and only one century to his name before this his never really delivered with the bat. But all that changed today with his first ever 150 batting down at 7, his innings included 17 fours and 10 sixes. Now he just needs to find some consistency with both bat and bowl.
Rangama 124 All Out (Dissanayake 33*, Dais 6/43) against Tamil Union 7/116 (L De Silva 49*, Gamage 3/35, Dissanayake 2/13)
By the looks of it not the greatest pitch in the world with batsmen struggling in both teams. Ranga Dais continued his good season with the ball taking a 6-fer, he played for Sri Lanka A before. Lanka De Silva former Sri Lanka keeper batsmen top scored for Tamil and got them close to first innings points. Former Sri Lankan fast bowler Dharshana Gamage has been the pick of the Rangama fast bowlers with fellow Sri Lanka international Kaushalya Weeraratne (1/18 off 8) supporting him well with some defensive bowling. Tamil Union look on target for 1st innings points buts its anyones game.
The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)
