Chilaw Marians demolish Colts

January 29th, 2017


Colts Cricket Club, considered a power house in the Sri Lanka domestic circuit, were dismantled for just 39 runs inside 14 overs as Chilaw Marians CC completed a comprehensive victory in their low-scoring Super Eight match at the CCC grounds.

After posting a below-par 196 in their first innings, Chilaw Marians managed to clinch a victory with two days to spare. The lads from Havelock Town captained by Dilruwan Perera had no answers to Isuru Udana, Maduka Liyanapathiranage and Malinda Pushpakumara as the title favourites - Chilaw Marians made short work of their opponents on a hot Sunday afternoon. Earlier Arosh Janoda bowled a brilliant spell with the new ball taking 7 for 38 in Colts 1st innings.
