    May 28, 2019

    BELGAUM, Monday - Sri Lanka A suffered an innings and 205 runs defeat at the hands of India A in the first 4-day unofficial test played at the Union Gymkhana grounds here on Monday.Facing a huge Indian first innings score of 622-5 declared, Sri Lanka batsmen succumbed to the leg-spin of Rahul Chahar who ended with match figures of eight for 123 to be bowled out twice after following-on for scores of 232 and 185.

    World Cup discard Niroshan Dickwella scored a plucky century in the first innings – 103 off 113 balls (15 fours) and put together a stand of 111 with skipper Ashan Priyanjan who made 49. But once the stand was broken the rest of the batting offered little resistance.

    Following on Sri Lanka A fared even worse and folded up tamely for 185 with Sadeera Samarawickrama making a top score of 48 as the match ended on the third day.

    Scores: India A 622-5 decl.

    Sri Lanka A 232 (63.4) (o/n 83/4) (Ashan Priyanjan 49, Niroshan Dickwella 103, S Warrier 2/50, S Dube 2/19, R Chahar 4/78, J Yadav 2/67) and 185 (52.3) (Sadeera Samarawickrama 48, Ashan Priyanjan 39, Niroshan Dickwella 27, Chamika Karunaratne 20, A Rajpoot 2/11, S Warrier 2/26, R Chahar 4/45, J Yadav 2/58)
