SLT takes cricket to the East

Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) sponsored the first ever big match between Wesley College, Kalmunai and Vipulananda Central College, Karaitivu titled ‘Eastern Coastal War.’

M. Sanjeev captained the Vipulananda Central College team and G. Vinojith, the Wesley High School team.

The Big Match was played at the Vipulananda Central College grounds in Karaitivu recently.

Vipulananda Central College batting first made 137 runs in 28.1 overs following stunning effort from the Wesley bowlers, but Vipulananda then produced an even better performance with the ball as they skittle out Wesley for 91 runs securing a 46-run victory.

Sri Lanka Telecom had also distributed three awards for individual performance as Sriskanth (man of the match), Sopithas (best batsman) and Vithusanan (best bowler).
