By M. Shamil Amit

Kurunegala YCC has put themselves in a strong position to clinch the Sara Trophy when play ended on day two in the final against Galle CC at the Surrey Village cricket grounds in Hikkaduwa.
Kurunegala YCC resuming on their overnight score of 293 for 7 went on to make 331 and had the Galle CC struggling on 206 for 8.

The morning session’s play was interrupted by heavy rain with only 11 overs of play being possible. The umpires called off play when Kurunegala YCC was 330 for 9. Play began only after the lunch session but even then they did not last long being bowled with the addition of one run. Overnight batsman Anuruddha Rajapakse who was unbeaten on 56 the previous day added a further 18 runs to make 74.

Galle CC side is left with the daunting task of making another 126 runs if they are to deny Kurunegala CC lifting the Sara Trophy when play starts at 10.00 on the final day today.

Kurunegala YCC (293/7 overnight) 331 (Udesh Perera 77, Chamikara Edirisinghe 49, Indika Dharmawardena 29, Damith Gunatileke 27, Lanka de Silva 20, Chinthaka Jayabandara 20, Nandika Abeysinghe 17, Anuruddha Rajapakse 74 n.o.: Sameera Perera 5 for 93, Hirantha Wijesinghe 3 for 51) Galle CC 206 for 8 (Asela Wewalwala 65, Primal Buddika 44, Janith Sameera 27, Oshitha Dharshana 18: Damith Gunatileke 2 for 17, Narada Ratnayake 2 for 35)
