All four games of the ongoing Sri Lanka Super Provincial Four-Day Test Tournament concluded without a result but Roshen Silva, Kasun Rajitha, and Lahiru Gamage topped individual batting and bowling charts over the past few weeks.
Silva’s unbeaten 231 gave him a total of 278 in just 3 innings. He accumulated a total of 22 fours, every other run was a single, two or a three.
Silva is closely followed by Ashan Priyanjan who has 275 runs in 4 innings with a high score of 156. In third place is Mahela Udawatte with 241 runs. If Priyanjan can get another ton under his name, he’d surely have a good chance of making it to the squad to West Indies in June.
Lahiru Gamage of Kandy tops the bowling charts ahead of Kasun Rajitha who has conceded more runs but has the equal number of wickets (10). Gamage has picked 10 in 3 innings conceding only 169 runs with 12 maidens in 53 overs.
Rajitha’s stats are quite similar but the right arm fast bowler has conceded 205 runs. Nisala Tharaka takes 3rd place with 8 wickets under his name. Meanwhile Charith Asalanka, Malinda Pushpakumara, and Kasun Rajitha also top the fielding charts with 3 catches in the 2 games played.
On the 21st of April 2018, Dambulla will take on Colombo at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium. On the same day, Galle will take on Kandy at Hambantota. The two teams to win will share the title but with rain on the cards, anything is possible.
Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep, Shehan Madushanka, Asela Gunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, Angelo Mathews and a few other senior players were out of the first four tests due to injury. Chameera is likely to stay out of the tour to West Indies. Dammika Prasad on the other hand, has made a remarkable comeback after surgery and rehabilitation.
For those of you who didn’t know, Sri Lanka tour of West Indies begins on the 6th of June 2018 at Port of Spain Trinidad.
