Governor’s Trophy (formerly Sara) Tournament
Practices in preparation to participating in the tournament began in August 2021, had to be halted due to the Covid-19 lockdown that had existed. Practices recommenced in November when it was informed by Sri Lanka Cricket that the tournament would get underway in February 2022, and likewise it did. Few talented players that had played in the Premier League representing major clubs had joined us this season, including school boys. Two practice games amongst the squad were played in turf wicket at the Bloomfield Ground, to select the final squad of 20 players, from a squad of 30 that had attended practices. A meeting was organized to motivating the players just prior to the commencement of the tournament.
The motivational speech was given by Maj. Gen Roycelan Sally (Rtd) who had the players captivating by his speech. The meeting did a world of good to the mental aspect of the players, and this was amply reflected by their behavior on and off the field. In the shortened tournament that began on 15th January, CMCC was drawn into Group C, consisting 6 teams and had to play 5 matches. Unlike previously, there were no home and away encounter this season due to the late start owing to Covid-19 lockdowns and all matches were played on turf wicket. CMCC won two matches, tied one and lost two and was placed 3rd in the group. We were very unfortunate not to qualify for the Knockout Quarter Finals. The team played well in patches but not to their true potential. They cannot be faulted for their performances due to the long layoff from the sport, and the shortened structure of the tournament conducted this season.
The only two players that were consistent throughout the tournament have brought glory to the club. We are proud to announce that CMCC skipper Mangala Pradeep Kumara, and our front order batsman Kalana Madhusanka, have been adjudged the Best Bowler and the Best Batsman respectively, of the tournament. Skipper Mangala Pradeep ended with a haul of 16 Wickets at an outstanding economy rate of 2.78 per over. He was also in the running for the Best All-rounder of the tournament. Kalana Madhusanka was the highest run scorer of the tournament accumulating 299 runs in 5 innings with a highest score of 135 runs, to end with a marvelous average of 59.8 per innings. Both players will be rewarded for their brilliant performances with Trophies and Cash Prizes at the awards ceremony to be held shortly by Sri Lanka Cricket. Our heartiest congratulations to Mangala Pradeep and Kalana Madhusanka for their outstanding performances!
CMCC was invited to participate in the Six-a- Side Cricket tournament organized by United Southern Sports Club, held on 12th & 13th February 2022, at the Sri Lanka Ports Authority Ground, Narahenpita. Sixteen Division 1 teams had participated at the tournament. In the league stage CMCC led the group by beating Badureliya SC and Nawaloka SC, but lost in the Cup Semi Finals to Navy Sea Hawk by 15 runs. CMCC beat United Southern SC by 25 runs in the Plate Semi Finals and went on the beat Nawaloka SC by 15 runs to win the Plate Championship. The team was captained by Kalana Madhusanka. On the whole, we can be happy with our performance in the shortened season. The next season begins in June and the Cricket management is confident that CMCC would do well if all top players are retained. Our thanks to Coach Wadiba Perera, who has done a very good job with the team. We also thank the Cricket Manager Mr. Shaam Sabar, for coordinating with the players and the Management since practices for the season commenced.
