by Ranjan Anandappa
Minhaj Jaleel of Thurstan College took the lead once again polling
24,201 votes displacing Sebastianite Anusha Perera (23,519) into the
third slot while Royal’s Milan Abeysekera who was placed second last
week remains at number two with 23,876 votes at the end of the 11th week
count in the Sunday Observer/Mobitel Most popular Schoolboy Cricketer Of
The year Contest 2013.
The contest for the first two spots in the platinum contest for
schools taking part in the SLSCA division one tournament is hotting up
with the deficit between the first two Jaleel and Abeysekera being only
325 votes. However, Anusha Perera who is in the third position is not
far behind with 23,519. So it should all lead to a three cornered
tussle.In the Gold contest for schools playing in division two Cheruka
Herath of Sri Sumnagala, Panadura took the number two spot pushing
Sakunda de Silva of Sri Devananda, Ambalangoda to number three.
Yamal Siriwardene of St. John’s College, Nugegoda remained unmoved at
the top polling 19,304 votes.
In the Silver segment too, there was a change when Trishan Rodrigo
(16,371) of Loyala College, Negombo took the lead from last week’s
