Shenon shines as Petes continue unbeaten run


Under 19 Limited Overs Tournament

by Reemus Fernando

Shenon Rodrigo excelled with a five wicket haul as St. Peter’s continued their unbeaten run in the Under 19 Division I Tier ‘B’ Limited Overs tournament on Tuesday.

St. Peter’s, St. Joseph Vaz’s and Moratu Vidyalaya registered victories in the Tier ‘B’ tournament yesterday, while Maliyadeva pulled off a stunning nine runs win over D.S. Senanayake in the Tier ‘A’ match played in Colombo.

In the Tier ‘A’ match, DSS were comfortably placed at 118 for three wickets at one stage in pursuit of a target of 175 runs. Gaviru Senhas gave them a robust start scoring the first 22 of his 75 runs in boundaries in the first over. But quick wickets by Themiya Bandara and Charuka Herath helped Maliyadeva rattle the last seven wickets for 47 runs.

At Bambalapitiya, Shenon Rodrigo picked up five wickets to restrict Dharmasoka to 179 runs. In their essay, the Petes third wicket pair of Rusanda Gamage and Nimuthu Gunawardana put on an unbroken 101 runs stand to seal the victory with many overs to spare.

While a top knock of 92 runs by Isuru Nidarshana was the highlight for Moratu Vidyalaya in their match against Dharmapala, an unbeaten 30 runs by Janith Shehan stood in good stead for St. Joseph Vaz’s as it helped them beat Ananda.
