SL girls in Junior Fed Cup Final Qualifiers

Dinuka stars in Battle of Golds

Magnificent bowling figures of nine for 90 by Mahanama’s left arm spinner Dinuka Chamath restricted the D.S.Senanayake College batsmen to 253 runs at the end of the first day’s play of the 7th Battle of the Golds against Mahanama College which began at P.Sara Oval Ground yesterday.

Mahanama won the toss and decided to field first. DSSC batsmen were helpless in facing Dinuka Chamath and struggled to get on with scoring but the ninth wicket pair Suchintha Karunaratne (53) and Harith Maduwantha(58) put on a healthy 79-run partnership which lifted the Senanayakian's total to 253 runs.

Mahanama were 24 for three wickets in 10.3 overs at stumps. The match will resume today at 9.45 AM.

DSS : 253 in 69.1 overs (Uvin Bandara 47, Kanishka Prashan 14, Harith Maduwantha 58, Suchintha Karunaratne 53, Dinuka Chamath 9 for 90) Fall of Wickets : 1-55, 2-67, 3-75, 4-88, 5-92, 6-100, 7-153, 8-153, 9-232,10-253

Mahanama : 24 for 3 in 10.3 overs (Pawan Devinda 10, Gihan Sanjeewa 9 n.o., Binura Fernando 2 for 12) Fall of Wickets : 1-6, 2-8, 3-15

Sri Lanka guaranteed a berth in the Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Final Qualifying event which is to be worked off from April 22 to 27 in Gimcheon, Korea. Sri Lankan girls (age category 16 and under) have maintained an unbeaten record to be placed second in the group ‘A’ of the Asia/Oceania Pre-Qualifying event being worked off in Kuching, Malaysia.

Sri Lanka secured victory over Pakistan yesterday after Kavindya de Silva defeated Rida Khalid 6-2, 6-0 and Nethmie Waduge bettered Iman Qureshi 6-3, 6-2 in two singles.

The doubles rubber was washed out by rain and will be played after the conclusion of today’s scheduled ties.

Earlier Sri Lanka defeated Kyrgyzstan 2-1 and Iran 3-0 during the pre-qualifying event. Sri Lanka will meet group leaders Kazakhstan in their final group tie today to determine group champions.

Meanwhile at the same venue, the other Sri Lankan girls team (age category14 and under) beat Turkmenistan 3-0 in the pre-qualifying stage to be qualified for the ITF World Junior Tennis Competition Asia/Oceania Final Qualifying event which is to be worked off in Malaysia from April 15-20.

The International Team Competition for players aged 16 and Under was launched by the ITF in 1985 as the “World Youth Cup” with NEC as the title sponsor between 1988 and 2001.

In 2002 the ITF re-branded the boys competition as part of a new partnership with BNP Paribas to “Junior Davis Cup by BNP Paribas”.

The girls’ competition was also changed to “Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas” in 2005. An agreement was also signed with Wilson with effect from 2002, to become the ‘Official Ball’ of the Competition.
