World Cup discard Sanath Jayasuriya continued to humiliate the national selectors as he starred with bat and ball to spearhead Ruhuna Province to an emphatic 69 run victory over Basnahira Province in their SLC Inter Provincial limited overs cricket tournament match worked off at the SSC ground in Maitland Place yesterday.
The veteran all rounder scored his second successive half century to lift his team to an imposing 283 for 7 having elected to bat first and then snapped up two important wickets to dismiss the opposition for 214 runs. Jayasuriya has now emerged as the highest run getter in this tournament having accumulated a total of 197 runs from three outings at an average of 65.66 and with a strike rate of 87.16.
