Off spinner Koshan Danushka took a match bag of twelve wickets for 66 to spearhead Nalanda College to a morale-boosting eight wicket outright victory over Lumbini MV in their inter school under 19 cricket tournament match which concluded at Reid Avenue yesterday.
Danushka who took a five wicket haul in the first innings returned career best figures of seven wickets for 20 in the second innings as Lumbini MV were skittled out for 106 runs in their second attempt.
Earlier Nalanda could add only two runs to their overnight total and were dismissed for 128 runs in the first innings. But they came back strongly through the individual brilliance of Koshan Danushka who had a memorable outing with a match bag of twelve wickets for 66 runs.
The Nalandians after their first innings debacle batted more sensibly during their run chase and reached their target of 109 runs while losing only a couple of wickets.
Lumbini MV: 129 and 106 (D. Priyadarshana 26, K. Danushka 7 for 20, D. Tharinda 2 for 16)
