Sri Lanka - A , Limited Overs - 100s

Sri Lanka-A clinched an excellent victory against England Lions Yesterday. Even though it was a rain affected match Sri Lankan Openers added unbeaten 201 for the first wicket. Dhanushka Gunathilaka faced 65 balls to score his maiden List A 100 for Sri Lanka-A. Most probably it must be the 3rd fastest List A 100 scored by a Sri Lankan after Sanath Jayasuriya.

Notes:

1) Kumar Sangakkara was the first to score a List A 100 for Sri Lanka- A. His unbeaten 156 against Zimbabwe-A was enough to get a national call in 2000. 

2) Upul Tharanga's 173* against South Africa-A was the highest List-A innings for an A team of a country till 2013. After Shikar Dhawan's 248 against South Africa-A in 2013 Upul Tharanga's innings came down as 2nd. However among Sri Lanka-A players still it tops the list.

3)Vandort, Tharanga, Warnapura, Udawatta, Karunaratne, Chandimal, Kusal Janith, Paranavithana & Priyanjan all have scored 2 List A 100s each for Sri Lanka.

4) Top 5, 50 overs knocks for Sri Lanka A.
Upul Tharanga 173* v SA A - 2008
Mahela Udawatta 161 v Pakistanis - 2009
Kumar Sangakkara 156* v Zimbabwe A - 2000
Saman Jayantha 147* v Worcestershire - 2004
