St. Joseph's College – 167 All Out (Sandaruwan Rodrigo – 38; Nipun Samarasinghe – 21; Malshan Rodrigo – 22) Bowling: Manelka de Silva 3 for 33; Taneesha Weerakoon 4 for 49.

St. Peter's College – 215 for 7 wkts. (Chandula Jayamanne – 36; Sachin Dalpethado – 104 n.o.; Taneesha Weerakoon – 30 n.o.). Bowling: Ruchira Ekanayaka 3 for 62.

Right arm spinner Taneesha Weerakoon with a four wicket haul and middle order batsman Sachin Dalpethado (104 not out) helped St.Peter's College to end the day in a strong position after posting 215 for seven wickets at stumps in their "81st Battle of the Saints" encounter at P.Sara Oval, Colombo on Friday.

Dalpethado joined Taneesha Weerakoon (30 not out) for an unbeaten 130 runs stand for the eighth wicket for Peterites to conclude days play with three wickets in hand after Aravinda Akurugoda (three for 47) and Ruchira Ekanayake (three for 62) had the Peterites reeling at 85 for seven at one stagez_p20-Battle-02.jpg

They also broke the previous record partnership of 94 runs for the eighth wicket established by Premasiri Athukorale (85) and C.Marathalingam(16) in 1957.

Josephians taking the first lease of the wicket were all out for just 167 runs in 59.5 overs. Opener Sandaruwan Rodrigo was dismissed at 38 due to a run out. Skipper Pathum Madusanka couldn't impress much being dismissed for eight runs off the bowling of paceman Manelka de Silva.

The Josephians innings was anchored by Nipun Sumanasinghe (21) and Malshan Rordigo (22). Spinner Taneesha Weerakoon did the damage with pacemanManelka de Silva.

The Peterites in their innings were off to a disastrous start as their wickets began to fell at regular intervals. However skipper Chandula Jayamanne made 36 runs to prop up St.Peter's innings. The innings of the lads from Bambalapitiya were rescued by the duo of Sachin Dalpethado (104 not out) and Taneesha Weerakoon (30 not out)

Ruchira Ekanayake and Aravinda Akurugoda contained the Peterite batsmen capturing three wickets each.

The match will resume today at 9.30 am.
