A superb matchbag of nine wickets from left-arm spinner Chamodya Rajapaksa and a fine half century by Sri Lanka youth player Avishka Perera helped Nalanda College record a comfortable 86-run win over Dharmasoka MV, Ambalangoda in their Under-19 Inter-Schools Cricket Tournament encounter which concluded at Campbell Place today (27).
