So, Australia in Crumbling/Windy conditions.

Needless to say we never expected a win.

Bowled out for 131 really explains the game.

Our young bowlers competed bravely to take 5 wickets but in the end they chased it down in 35 overs.

Batting first reduced the NRR hit.

Onto Canada.... a game where we should perform significantly better in

Slow/Windy conditions.

The match can be followed on the following link

Great start to the tour, good NRR boost as well.
aren't your bowler ages a bit suspicious? de Mel (21.1), Jayasekera (21.1), Perera (21.0)
They were 20.14 at selection :ninja
I'm convinced :wink:

Great job so far on this tour with 3 wins and one loss...same sequence we had with the seniors WLWW so far.
Nice position to be in: 3 teams with 12 points and they other two play each other.

This means win and you're up. Lose and its an NRR battle. So lose narrowly and you may well go up too especially if South Africa win the other game.

Incredibly promising!

Been aiming for promotion every tour, almost there now! World Cup qualification is now completed as well!

Sri Lanka U20's Dominant.

That's the headlines the papers will read this morning!

An absolutely dominate display against Bermuda has us in the box seat to promote to Division 1.

Bermuda 10/119 which Sri Lanka chased down in 28 overs.

This brings us to Day 5 and leaves us in a great position.

We currently have 3 teams locked on 3 wins, 1 loss with a strong NRR. The bonus.
<strong>The other 2 teams play each other</strong>

A win guarantees promotion, a draw guarantees promotion. A loss and we might promote.

Thanks to all supporters of Sri Lanka U20 and hopefully tonight, the team will deliver!

Sorry for the late mail. The Sri Lankan U20 National team has only just recovered from the 2 day party they began on Friday.

Friday we defeated the UAE 20 team by 46 runs.

This is significant as we have now achieved the following goals:
Qualify for Division 1 U20
Qualify for Division 1 T20
Qualify for The EOS 47 World Cup.

We have just booked our ticket to the EOS 47 World Cup.

The following goals for the remainder of the season:
Remain in OD Division 1
Remain in T20 Division 1
Win the World Cup
Get Bura back to Sri Lanka

Over the coming weeks I will be in contact with the 30 man squad that will make up our initial World Cup squad in relation to training requirements to ensure we have the best opportunity possible for not only the World Cup, but also moving forward as a nation to build a stronger Sri Lanka.

Finally a few thank you special mentions i have to give having achieved these massive goals:
My assistants Angolvagyok & Chezza have been nothing short of amazing and I could not be here without the team behind me.
paulc for his constant support on the forums and taking over the Senior National Team moving forward.
And many of our youth focused teams that build the squad for Sri Lanka U20.
Just to single out a couple:
Lesvosace, Angolvagyok, bura, KnightWing & rkpny have been the rock to every squad we have taken on tour.
Thank you now and thank you for the future Sri Lankan U20 players you will develop.

Regards, MD-Summit
