A student of Nalanda College, Wijeyarathne excelled with the ball earlier in the day and snapped up three wickets, with his teammate Sandul also taking three wickets.

Arosha (39) and Nihandu (32) were the top scorers for Colts who made 133 in 30 overs.

Santhul Wijeyarathne and Rachintha de Silva (24) then opened the inning for the Sanath Jayasuriya Cricket Academy with a stand of 71.

Anchored by Wijeyarathne’s sparkling century, the Sanath Jayasuriya Cricket Academy then easily overhauled Colts’ total with six wickets to spare.
