Schoolboy Vanhoff slams swashbuckling 356

Also hammers six sixes in one over

By M. Shamil Amit

St. Thomas’ College Kotte skipper Michael Vanhoff slammed a swashbuckling 356 in just 205 balls which included 20 boundaries and 35 towering sixes to steer his side to an emphatic innings and 172 runs win over Lalith Athulathmudali MMV Mt Lavinia in the Under 19 inter-school match concluded at Kotte yesterday.

Vanhoff’s knock also included six sixes in one over which most probably would be a schools record.

Vanhoff’s blistering knock along with Akila Weerasinghe’s 137 with 18 boundaries and a six saw the Thomians make a massive 608 for 4 declared in just 65 overs in reply to their opponent’s score of 226.

The Thomian mammoth score was on the back of a record second wicket partnership of 345 runs between Vanhoff and Weerasinghe.

Lalith Athulathmudali MMV batting the second time with a massive deficit of 382 runs was bundled out for 210 with Vanhoff doing the damage taking 5 for 105.

Lalith Athulathmudali MMV 226 (B. Chathuranga 58, B. Nanayakkara 52: Nipuna Mahesh 2 for 18, Ian Basnayake 2 for 25) and 210 (B. Chathuranga 122, M. Sandun 45: Michael Vanhoff 5 for 105, Akila Weerasinghe 2 for 48)

St Thomas’ College Kotte 608 for 4 declared (Michael Vanhoff 356, Akila Weerasinghe 137, Gihan Benedict 45)

How old is he? Good prospect. Hope we groom him from now. Scoring 300 in any form is  a huge challenge.
