LNP – Shenith hat-tricks as Sebs earn honours

Under-19 Cricket

Off-spinner Shenith Fernando had a match bag of seven wickets including a first innings hat-trick and Sanesh Fernando scored a century as St. Sebastian’s earned first innings honours against Dharmasoka in their Under-19 match ended on Saturday.

Shenith who was awarded a place in the First XI team on the back of a good performance in their Second XI match against St. Peter’s, made the most of the opportunity when he took a hat-trick in the first innings.

While S. Thomas’ registered nine runs victory over Maliyadeva according to Parabola Method in their Limited overs match on Sunday, St. Peter’s and St. Sebastian’s were the first innings winners in their traditional encounters.

A century by Isiwara Dissanayaka and good all round performance of 71 runs and a five wicket haul by Dunith Wellalage were the highlights of the closely contested Royal-St. Joseph’s encounter.
