Sri Lanka ‘A; flop besides Sachitra heroics

Sri Lanka failed against the left arm orthodox spin of John O'Keefe (7 for 35)as they slumped a poor 103 all out in reply to Australia ‘A’ first innings total of 208 on the second day of their four day game at the Allan Border Field, Brisbane, yesterday.

After medium pacer Sachitra Senanayake had restricted the home team to a tentative 208 in their first innings with impressive figures of 8 for 70, the Lankans could not cope with the spin of Steve O’Keefe with only four batsmen entering double figures.

At the end of the day the Australians batting for the second time had scored 200 for the loss of six wickets with paceman Dhammika Prasad bagging 3 for 34.

O’Keefe who also top scored for Australia in their first innings with 61besides his bowling feat, was not out on 28 at close of play along with his skipper G. Bailey who was not out on 57.
