Dihan Silva’s 80 not out off just 42 balls was the highlight of this weekend’s action at the JCA T20 tournament which saw Ceylon Cavaliers, Garuda Gentlemen, Indorama CC & WPP India XI win their games.
Ceylon Cavaliers took on the fancied WISCI Wanderers in their T20 game on Saturday. Tight bowling by Jayathilaka including the crucial wicket of Kirubasankar put early pressure on the WISCI batting. Despite some sensible batting by the young Mohit Hotchandani & H. Sadarangani, Rajeev Kumar’s penetrative spell, ensured WISCI could only manage 117 runs in their 20 overs. In reply, the experienced duo of Gaurav Kapoor & Dihan Silva put on 86 runs to ensure Ceylon winning by a huge margin of 8 wickets and 5 overs to spare. Dihan Silva, scoring at a whopping strike rate of 190, delighted the crowd with 16 boundaries.
