Jaffna Stallions secured an all-important 5-wicket victory over Galle Gladiators in game nine of the 2020 Lanka Premier League to continue their unbeaten run at the top of the points table. The Gladiators batting first posted a respectable 170/6 in their 20 overs with Danushka Gunathilaka top scoring with 56 off 44 balls. Chasing 171 runs for a win, Stallions batsmen performed well to seal victory in the final over. Avishka Fernando showed promise as he clinched yet another man of the match award for his knock of 84 runs off 59 balls including five sixes and seven fours. The Stallions continue to dominate the league.
Meanwhile, Cricket West Indies has won the 2020 Christopher Martin-Jenkins Spirit of Cricket Award for sending their men’s and women’s teams to tour England. The men’s side arrived in June for a three-Test series when coronavirus infection rates in England were high. The women played a Twenty20 series in September at short notice after India and South Africa were unable to tour because of the pandemic.
The MCC President and former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara said West Indies’ actions “truly embodied the spirit of cricket”
