By Aubrey Kuruppu

Peradeniya University started their Division 3 campaign with a comfortable five wicket win over Zelanikans SC at the Campus grounds. Shot out for 83, the visiting team hit back to grab five wickets. But their low total made a win out of the question.

Zelanikans SC 83 in 33.2 overs (V. Jayawardena 15, L. Sandakelum 13, V. Sampath 2-12, J. Gallage 3-11)

Peradeniya University 84-5 in 15 overs.(S.C. Gamage 37, M.G. Marawaliyadde 17.D. Kumara 2-13.)

Beat Black Eagles too

The Peradeniya Undergrads made it two out of two, when they beat Black Eagles S.C by 64 runs in a relatively high-scoring match at Peradeniya. Former Kingswood and University skipper Chamara Seneviratne struck a bold 72 to give the opponents a Herculean task.

For the Peradeniya University J. Gallage produced an all round performance.
