The excitement generated by taking part in Washington DC Ruby tournament in last March, enticed us to field a team representing Old Rajans at the 20th annual seven-a-side soft ball cricket tournament held in Washington DC in last July. However, getting seven Rajans to play against some of the seasoned campaigners of soft ball cricket in DC suburbs and New York was indeed a Herculean task.

To make the matters worse, it was the height of the summer and the temperature exceeding 100F was simply unbearable even for a midday stroll, leave alone playing competitive cricket. It was also the time that most of our members were away spending summer holidays in Sri Lanka. Nevertheless, four of us in the DAANA DC chapter were determined to make our presence known. Finally, we were able to register an old Rajans team after accommodating 3 non-Rajans to have a playing 7. There were many teams representing leading schools in Sri Lanka such as Trinity, Royal. St Peters and St. Thomas’s college.
