Ravindu, Sharujan-powered 293 creates history in MCA inter-academy tourney

Both openers remain on unbeaten three-digit scores after batting through allotted 30 overs

Ravindu Sigera and Sharujan Shanmuganathan opening the innings of CCC CA in their match against MCA-Green batted through their 30 overs unbeaten helping their side make the highest total (293) and the highest opening-partnership (293) recorded so far in this year’s MCA Inter-Academy U13 cricket tournament. CCC total of 293 for no loss eclipsed the 214, SSC had scored against SPS Rambukkana a few days ago.

 

Both batsmen scored undefeated mind-boggling hundreds as CCC batting first on invitation amassed 293 for no loss in 30 overs at an amazing average of a slightly less than ten per over. Ravindu’s 143 scored off just 88 balls had 19 Fours and two sixes in it whilst Sharujan whacked 132 off 97 balls with 10 fours.

 

After this pair’s sublime batting heroic, CCC recorded a massive 190-run victory in this match as MCA in reply managed only 103 for eight in 30 overs with Nikitha Peiris (35) and Senesh Weheragoda (22) making the bulk of scoring. For winners, Ravindu Sigera who was one of the centurions in CCC innings took two wickets conceding just 14 runs to finish with a superb all-round effort.
