One walked away, the other rode like a colossus
Yet another product of the Observer SLT Mobtel School Cricketers of the Year contest proved his might in international cricket last week. It was only a few years ago that Asitha Fernando of St Sebastian’s College, Katuneriya stole the limelight by winning the best bowler’s award at the Observer SLT Mobtel School Cricketers of the Year show. Last Friday in Minpur, the 24-year-old finished with an excellent match bag of ten wickets, leading Sri Lanka to a superb win over Bangladesh in the second Test. His match bag of 10 for 144 not only led Sri Lanka to a ten-wicket win but also gave his team a sweet 1-0 win in the two-Test series after the drawn first Test.
