Bhuvaneka the star


Bhuvaneka Ekanayake, a punishing left hander, stole the honours in the drawn 103rd Big Match between Dharmaraja and Kingswood at the Asgiriya Stadium yesterday.

Ekanayake top scored with an eye-catching 82. He also made eighties in the last two big matches. Youngster Weerakkody impressed with his shot-making. Kalubowila’s 42 and Bandara’s 40 were initially laboured efforts. Rahula Ekanayake and skipper Silva took toll of a tiring Kingswood side.

Kumarasiri picked up three, but medium pacie Hettige deserved more than his solitary wicket.

Kingswood 210 for 9 dec in 81 overs (U. Hettige 44, C. Kumarasiri 15, A. Seneviratne 53 n.o, M. Maduranga 15, C. Dharmaprema 31; J. Dandeniya 2 for 56, R. Ekanayake 4 for 65)

Dharmaraja 327 for 7 in 86.4 overs (B. Ekanayake 82, R. Bandara 40, S. Kalubowila 42, T. E. Wedagedera 18, S. Weerakkody 49, R. Ekanayake 38, P. Silva 45, H. Munaweera 14 n.o; L. Gannoruwa 2 for 34, C. Kumarasiri 3 for 75) – AK
