Trinity create a new record

The Trinity College cricket team created a new record for the school when it registered its eighth win in a row, when they beat Mahanama College by five wickets with five overs to spare in their schools under 19 cricket tournament match played at the Asgiriya Stadium Kandy yesterday.

The previous record by a Trinity College cricket team was in 1922 led by Percy Maralande had scored seven outright wins in a row. This record stood for 89 years till it was lowered yesterday. Maralande who won his cricket lion in 1920 led the team with much success for three years from 1920 to 1922.

Trinity's win yesterday was fashioned by their spinners Janishka Premasinghe, Akila Jayasundera and Aamil Anas.

But the Trinitians were almost stalled by Mahanama's skipper Hashan Perera who stroked a brilliant 104 off 204 balls with 8 fours and 2 sixes.

He scored 104 of the 130 runs when he was at the wicket. But his fighting knock was in vain in the end as the Lions batted in fading light to register their 8th win in a row.

Chief scores:

Mahanama College 103 all out in 48 overs (Chatura Wanniarachchi 20, Janaka Madhushan 30, Janishka Premasinghe 2 for 29, Aamil Anas 4 for 32, Akila Jayasundera 3 for 17) and 168 all out in 77.1 overs (Chatura Jayasinghe 18, Hashan Perera 104, Dilshan Rusiru 22, Aamil Anas 2 for 48, Akila Jayasundera 2 for 31, Janishka Premasinghe 4 for 26).

Trinity College 201 all out in 60 overs (Niroshan Dickwella 25, Heshan Wanniarachchi 22, Rajitha Jayatunga 16, Kavinda Jayasuriya 10, Akila Jayasundera 48, Alwin Fernando 30 n.o., Aamil Anas 10, Janaka Madusanka 2 for 40, Chathura Wanniarachchi 5 for 32) and 72 for 5 wickets in 9.5 overs (Heshan Wanniarachchi 18, Akila Jayasundera 26, Janaka Madusanka 3 for 30).
