Sri Lanka A bats deep on fourth day to force a draw against Ireland Wolves

Resuming overnight on 180-4, Sri Lanka A’s batters – led by a double-century from opener Pathum Nissanka and a maiden first-class century from Chamika Karunaratne – put on 288 runs in just over two sessions to put the game out of reach for the visiting side. For the bowling side, 18-year old leg-spinner JJ Garth, in only his second first-class appearance, claimed 3-140 and seamer Mark Adair took 2-65, but they couldn’t deliver that knock-out blow on the tail that they achieved in the first innings.
