Dharmaraja Vs Kingswood Big match 2015 (109th Battle of the Maroons)


The 109th battle of the maroons also known as the Big Match between Dharmaraja Vs Kingswood is one of the oldest big matches in the island. This year Rajans got into the game with clear favorites. Rajans batted the first innings and put a massive target of 306/6 ahead of our brothers who struggled with the pace and lift of Lahiru Samarakoon and scored 79 for the loss of 5 wickets at the end of day one. They were bowled out for 152 runs and had to bat for the second innings as they could not put a reasonable score to avoid follow on. The Second day was not so bright for the Kingswoodians and they fell for 104 runs giving the 4th win to Rajans during last five years
