BRC dream run for success By Naushad Amit

BRC became champions in the Sri Lanka Cricket Emerging T20 and Emerging 3 day tournament.

Following is a report on BRC cricket in the Sunday Times:


Standing from left: Shashin Dilranga, Chameera Dissanayake, Rajitha Wickramarachchi (Captain), Indika De Saram (Coach cum player), Vikum Sanjaya, Upali Manukularathna (Cricket Secretary), Rahula Dassenaieke (President), Hashen Ramanayake, Mangala Kumara, Nuwan Perera, Kavindu Silva, Dulanja Silva. Squatting from left: Lisula Lakshan, Poorna Aluthge, Damith Rangana, Pranama Sri Vimukthi, Savin Gunasekara, Senal Deelaka

With many setbacks around them, a young, gritty set of cricketers, guided by the most eligible veteran player in the game as player cum coach and with the backing of ever-resolute club officials, made a long term dream come true.

Burgher Recreational Club, better known as the BRC in the domestic cricketing circle, earned a double – first pocketing the Emerging Twenty20 championship pursued by the much awaited Emerging Championship – which will give them passage to compete alongside at the top sides in the Premier Championship from next season.

The Championship Winning Team was captained by Rajitha Wickramaarachchi with Indika De Saram as Coach.
