It was the very first school cricket encounter to be played at Pallekele International stadium.
Rajans Group of 94 joined the crowd to cheer Rajans Cricket team
Organizing committee of the Rajans Group of 94 led by Sanjeewa Hulangamuwa put up an excellent plan which made the Group of 94 the most outstanding of all. Most of the colleagues including the KCK praised the organizing of our Group.
The Double Decker
A whole new concept was introduced to the big match by using a double decker to roam in the Kandy city and to get the Group of 94 to the Pallekele grounds. It was filled with Papare music which rocked even the pedestrians in Kandy city. Bus was escorted by our own super Bike gang which was led by Tharanga Gamage’s thundering Honda. In future this will become a mandatory feature in Big Matches in other schools.
