Second consecutive win for Richmond College

Richmond College recorded their second consecutive win against Mahinda College in their 110th annual cricket encounter, “The Lovers’ Quarrel”. Richmond captain wining the toss on the first day invited Mahinda College captain to bat first. Mahinda after losing five quick wickets for 35 ended up with 173 all out after 60.3 overs , thanks to a patiently scored half  century by Gihan Danushka. Charith Asalanka took 3/54 while Avindu Theekshana took 4/24.
Richmond scored 275 for 8 in 47.5 overs with a record breaking first wicket partnership between Sithara Gimhana and Charith Asalanka. Sithara scored 67 and Charith scored almost a  run a ball 100. Richmond maintained a healthy run rate of above 5.5 during their innings.
Mahinda College started their second innings with  a deficit of 102 runs and were bowled out for 76 runs in 51.4 overs. Richmond College won the match by an innings and 26 runs.Saveen Nanayakkara took 6/26 while Charith Asalanka took 3/12.  Everyone thought that Mahindians  were over cautious trying to protect their wickets rather than scoring runs to bring down the deficit which resulted their downfall. Charith Asalanka was adjudged the man of the match and best batsman while Pasindu Bimsara & Saveen Nanayakkara were awarded with the best fielder & best bowler  respectively.
Cricket lovers of Galle were lucky to witness a cricket match  played with sportsmanship and discipline despite baseless  efforts made by a few people to bring an end to this historical event . It was very heartening to see the friendship and brotherhood displayed among the members of the two teams encouraging and wishing each other whenever a personal milestone was achieved. All in all it was a good display of cricket by all concerned where spectators of both schools also behaved well.
