St Anthony’s College, Kandy fought back to gain a slender first innings win over Mahanama College, Colombo in their inter-school cricket match concluded at Katugastota yesterday.
Heavy overnight rain resulted in water seeping through the covers and a spot little outside the danger area appeared to be damp. The visiting team declined to bat until this spot was dry.
The two umpires decided that the wicket was good enough to bat and requested Mahanama College to resume their innings at 2 p.m.
Mahanama College who were in a strong position overnight with their score at 112 for 3 in reply to Antonians’ total 179 all out, were soon in trouble as wickets started falling at regular intervals.
