Susantha takes National Snooker Title

 

Susantha Boteju once again proved his dominance in cue sport by winning the 59th National Snooker Championship which concluded at the Sugathadasa Stadium Hotel recently.

Boteju beat M. Munsi of Embassy Pool Parlour, Kandy in the final, 7-3 frames to bag the title for the 15th time and walked away with the U.W. Sumathipala Memorial Trophy. H.S.M. Aslam of Moors Sports Club and M.J. Anjelo Cronge of Otters SC won the third and fourth places respectively.

Boteju, who was the reigning National Champion qualified for the final by defeating H.S.M. Aslam 6-4 frames in the first semi final while Munsi beat M.J. Anjelo Cronge 6-4 frames in the other semi final to book his berth in the final.

The final stage of the championship lined up 32 National level cueists, including eight new entries who qualified after the all-island tournament. Altogether 29 players, who cleared the district level stage took part in the all-island competition representing Colombo (17), Kandy (8) and Galle (4) Districts.

The championship was conducted by the Billiards and Snooker Association of Sri Lanka (BSASL) and was sponsored by the Sumathi Group of Companies for the 12th consecutive year. According to the BSASL the number of participants in the district level was impressive this year.

QUESTION?

Is it a good move to appoint one captain for all formats in cricket?

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

"At the same time, I am very aware what a huge challenge it is. I think Sri Lanka cricket finds itself in the very early stages of a very important rebuilding stage. A lot of hard work needs to be done." "Everyone, the players, the selectors and the board must have patience." Graham Ford, newly appointed Sri Lanka cricket coach

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Ford seems a shrewd man and far thinker. He possibly foresaw that Sumathipala would be around for the next four years and hence SLC would be secure. This is a set-up which any foreigner wishes to see in a country which is noted for carrying out actions before thinking.
