Angelo (6/93) excels in drawn game

Royal-Peterite match ends in a stalemate:


Captain Angelo Perera’s impressive figures of 6 for 93 for St. Peter’s in Royal’s second-innings total of 261 all out was the main highlight on day two as their annual inter-school cricket encounter petered into a high-scoring draw at Bambalapitiya last evening.

St. Peter’s earlier resuming from an overnight 135 for 4, did well through solid contributions from the middle-order to pile-up a challenging first-innings total of 319 all out.

For Royal Maneesha Thanthirigoda bowled best to claim 4 for 138. Trailing by 44 runs on the first-innings Royal in their second-essay were bowled out for 261 with top-order bat Bhanuka Rajapakse top scoring with 66. He was well supported by Haroon Mowjood who made 62.

Royal: 275 and 261 all out (K. Vithanage 40, Kusal Perera 26, Bhanuka Rajapakse 66, Haroon Mowjood 62, L. de Silva 25, Angelo Perera 6 for 93, V. Perera 2 for 31).

St. Peter’s: (135 for 4 contd.) 319 all out (K. Rodrigo 35, N. Perera 39, A. Emmanuel 23, Chatura Peiris 37, Akshu Fernando 30, V. Perera 25, Maneesha Thanthirigoda 4-138) and 9 for no loss at close.
