Pradeep Hewage – Observer Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year in1998

It was nice to see the cream of schoolboy cricketers in the recently concluded 2021-2022 inter-school season being rewarded for their hard work with a tour of England. The touring Sri Lanka Under-19 team began their assignments with the first Youth Test against the England Under-19, concluded in Chelmsford last Wednesday. The Lankan team, led by Nalanda and Tamil Union batsman Raveen de Silva, did well to score 407 all out in their first innings with Katugastoda Antonian Asitha Wanninayake making a top score of 132 off 315 balls with 19 fours.
