It has been a remarkably good year for cricket at the club. The meticulous planning and development of our cricketers in the last few years has paid rich dividends and this was highlighted by the club winning a major tournament after ten years.

 

PREMIER DIVISION:

Under the leadership of Sajith Fernando our talented team won the Premier Limited Over Tournament by beating Chilaw Marians in the finals. Our team was felicitated to a Champions Night at the club and were given mementos to remember the occasion by. In the Premier League, as in the previous year, we were placed sixth due mainly to a number of our cricketers being called up for Sri Lanka squads during the season. Jeevan Mendis was adjudged best all rounder in both forms and Sachithra Serasinghe was adjudged the best batsman in the Limited Over Tournament.

 
UNDER 23:
The Under 23 team achieved a milestone by being the first in the history of our club to tour Malaysia at the invitation of the Malaysian Cricket Association. In the Limited Over Tournament, having been top of the table, they were unfortunate to lose in the Semi Finals to Bloomfield on the Duckworth Lewis System. In the three day format we were placed fourth.

SRI LANKA SQUADS
 
 
The following cricketers from the club were in Sri Lanka squads:
 
  • Muttiah Muralitharan: Vice Captain of the Sri Lanka National side
  • Muthumudalige Pushpakumara: Made his debut for Sri Lanka in the 20/20 series against India and also captained the Development Squad on its tour of Bangladesh.
  • Ashan Priyanjan: Captained the Development Squad to New Zealand and also the Development Squad which represented Sri Lanka at the South Asian Games in Bangladesh
  • Suranga Lakmal: Was in the Sri Lanka test squad against India and also toured India and Bangladesh with the Sri Lanka One Day International team.
  • Gehan Rupesinghe: Represented Sri Lanka in two T20 matches against New Zealand and was in the Development Squad which toured Bangladesh
  • Isuru Udana: Was in the One Day International squad against India and also the Development Squad which toured Bangladesh
  • Udara Peiris: Was in the Development Squad which toured New Zealand
  • Denuwan Rajakaruna: Was in the Sri Lanka Under 19 team which toured South Africa for the Under 19 World Cup

 

All this was achieved without the club having a cricket sponsor this year. All credit to the Chairman of the Cricket Committee Dinal Philips, Secretary Dilipa Wickremasinghe and Coach Lanka De Silva for their professionalism and perseverance which has enabled cricket at our club to advance this far in such a short period of time.
