It was for the second successive year that we organized “Down the Wicket” the one day cricket tournament on the 19th of September 2020 at Saibe Grounds of the University of Kelaniya. It was a project done under the guidance of the Co-Directors of Sports and Entertainment avenue: Rtr. Rusira Samarasinghe and Rtr.Kalani Perera. It is not to be forgotten that the tireless dedication of the team leaders, members of the avenue and all those who participated was what made this event a great success. The talented cricketers and the enthusiastic audience we had made it an exhilarating and refreshing experience to witness a fair game of fellowship.
Out of the 14 teams that participated, it was the team representing the Rotaract club of SLIIT that won the championship.
The team: Japura Conquerors became the most popular team, selected by a fair and open vote through our official Facebook page.
Regardless of the victory and defeat, it was the awe-inspiring sportsmanship and the unbreakable fellowship of all the teams that sparkled the pitch with flying sixes!
The one day cricket tournament concluded successfully while lighting the hope of a third phase of “Down the Wicket” coming up hopefully in the next year.
