Fernando’s 91 in vain at MCA cricket

28 March, 2021

An unbeaten 91 by Jaan Fernando of Zillion Systems was in vain as Singer Sri Lanka ‘B’ beat them by five wickets in the ongoing MCA ‘G’ division league cricket tournament held last weekend.

It took Fernando only 75 deliveries and his knock included six sixes and five fours as Zillion scored 167 for five wickets.

Singer ‘B’ scored 168 for five with Srimal Peiris top scoring on 61. Roshan Derling chipped in with a useful 51 runs and the pair added 80 runs in 50 balls for the third wicket.

Other notable batting performances came from Keshan Soysa from Hilton Colombo Residencies (78 vs. MD Gunasena), Dinesh Rangana from Abans Group (62 vs Orient Finance), Chathuranga Silva from Zillione Systems (76 vs. NDB ‘B’), Suranga Perera from NDB ‘B’ (60 no vs. Zillione Systems), Thilan Nugawela from Aitken Spence (70 vs. Singer ‘B’), Dinuja Peiris from Aitken Spence (67 vs. Singer ‘B’), and Tharaka Jeewantha from Pyramid Wilmar (52 vs. Ship Xpress)
