Fernando fireworks – and final five overs – sink Ireland Wolves in Colombo

Angelo Perera batting for Sri Lanka A against Ireland A

As the Sri Lankan senior team were falling to a heavy defeat to Australia, Sri Lanka A’s Avishka Fernando put forward his credentials for higher honours as he struck a second century in four innings, as his side completed a 202-run victory over Ireland Wolves at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground in Sri Lanka.

After winning the toss, the home side batted first and set about building a big total. Fernando’s innings of 139 runs from 118 balls included 10 fours and seven sixes – he has now hit 411 runs at an average of 102.75 in the last four matches against the Wolves.

  1. @Dattatray Kharade : Agree. At least a couple of players out of those four deserve to play ODIs during upcoming SA tour . Considering the nature of most of our selectors I won’t be suppressed if none of them gets a chance.

  2. I am certain that Sri Lanka A is better than the national side. If Sri Lanka can assembled a Sri Lanka B team that too will be better than the national side. Not sure why selectors still going with players who has mediocre domestic records. I did not see the names like Vishwa Fernando in any of those matches popping up. If people trying to bribe the minister imagine how that process is going with the others. We need a complete overhaul of the team. This isn’t the best team we have sent to play at international level.
