Rahula romp home in the nick of time

By Aubrey Kuruppu

A pursuing half century by Madushan Bototage (4x5, 6x2) helped Sri Rahula to defeat big match rivals Sumangala MV by 1 wicket in their lemonade Trophy Limited over match played at the Police Grounds.

When Bototage was dismissed, the Sri Rahula last pair needed to get only a run for victory. A wide off the next ball settled the issue.

Sumangala 182 in 46.1 overs (DT Dharmasiri 30, PD Attanayake 35, NK Lakmal 35, J. Dissanaike 19, C. Dikkumbura 3-44, R. Udayakumara 2-22, D. Manjula 2-25)

Sri Rahula 183-9 in 44.1 overs (R. Samaranayake 36, G. Maduranga 18\9, D.Gunatilleka 18, M. Bototage 50, R. Udayakumara 13,C. Dikkumbura 17, PB Kahawatte 3-31).
