Trinity College vs St. Thomas’ College, Matara

The bowling-heavy Trinity College visited the Matara school to work off the group ‘D’ fixture. The host won the toss and invited Trinity College to bat first. Useful knocks from wicket keeper Ashan Lokuketiya (61) and skipper, Pubudu Bandara (60) took their team to 237 for 9 as they decided it is enough and declared. Sachira Rashmika picked up a five-fer for St. Thomas’ Matara.

The Thomians were not at their best with the bat as they stuttered against the Trinitian spin duo, were Nagitha Wijesundara and Kavishka Senadeera, Who shared 9 wickets among them. The hosts were wrapped for 123 runs in the first-innings.

The follow-on was yet another melancholic scene for the boys from Matara as they surrendered for 116 runs giving Trinity College a 6-run target which they went past in the first bowl of the innings.

It was Wijesundara again, who shined with the ball as he took his tally to 11 wickets in the match with six-fer in the second-innings
