Sri Lanka’s renown Beach Volleyball teams continued their winning streak when the two teams registered impressive victories over their opponents at Al Musannah beach in the seconjd Asian Beach Games continued yesterday.
The first game was between Sri Lanka A team and Palestine and the Lankan pair of Wasantha Rathnapala and Mahesh Perera played with good understanding and cohesion to beat the threatening Palestine in straight sets, 21/13, 21/15.
Palestine who had beaten the fancied Oman team in their first match in a surprise win was a cause for concern in the Sri Lanka camp. This is because Oman had beaten Sri Lanka in a match in the Asian Games, but this would have been the main reason for Sri Lanka to take stock of their position and be prepared to improve on their performance.
