“Mora Triangular Elle Tournament 2012” was concluded recently, where University of Rajarata(RAJ) and  University of Sri Jayawardenapura (USJP) emerged winners in the men’s and women’s categories respectively. Three universities, namely University of  Rajarata, University of Sri Jayawardenapura  and University of Moratuwa (UOM) battled for glory in an eagerly contested tournament which kept the spectators on the edge of their seats.

In the women’s category, the first match was held between USJP and UOM , where USJP convincingly outclassed their opponents. Due to the result of this match, the next game became a do-or-die battle for UOM, which ultimately turned out to be a thriller. At the end of legitimate play, both UOM and RAJ scored 8 runs each, due to which each team was given 5 extra balls to play. The girls from RAJ emerged victorious in the tie-breaker, thus qualifying for Finals along with USJP. In the championship decider, USJP maintained their consistent run throughout the tournament, ensuring the title, while Rajarata had to be contended with the runners up.

In the much anticipated men’s category, the curtain-raiser was between USJP and UOM. The sportsmen from UOM, didn’t have much of a difficulty in overcoming USJP. The next game was between the two visiting teams, which had already become a must win game for USJP. The spectators had the luxury of witnessing yet another fabulous game, which went to the wire. After both teams scoring 5 runs at the end of play, the game moved into a tie-breaker. It was the men from RAJ who held their nerve and won that game ultimately, knocking USJP out of the competition. Moreover, they defeated the much-fancied Mora team in the final to grab one of the most resounding victories.

In the men’s category, Sampath Basnagoda from UOM was adjudged Man of the Series, during which he scored 3 runs and held 5 catches in 2 matches. So, that marked the end of another successful “Mora Triangular Elle Tournament”, adding some memorable experiences for the players who had engaged in it.

As Moraspirit, while congratulating the winners and the organizers on their great work, we wish them all the very best in their future endeavours!!!
