Sebs v Bens Big Match
St. Benedict's won the Inaugural Battle of the Greens, by 34 runs. St. Benedict's won the toss and elected to bat on a breezy summers day at the Post office grounds, and managed to pile up 275 for the loss of 6 wickets in 35 overs. Eranga Thiilna Rathnayake was the star for St Benedict's with a dazzling 174 with good support from Jason James & Dilshan Boteju.

In reply, St. Sebastian's needing almost 8 runs per over were on a spirited chase but fell short of short of 34 runs, with Sri Lanka International player DInusha Fernando top scoring with 64 runs. Angelo Rodrigo was the main bowler for Bens picking up 3 wickets.

Both teams played the gentlemen's game with mutual respect to each other and Lasallian values were highly display on the day. Big thank you goes out to all the captains and players for playing the game in the right spirit, to Mr. Flavian Aponso ( ex Holland International ) for sponsoring the challenge trophy, and Mr. Michael Fernandopulle (president Old Bens Uk) for sponsoring the medallions and player trophies. FoC President Mr. Ravi Raveendran handed out the Trophies to the winners and individual awards.

Best Batsman - Dinusha Fernando (SSC)
Best Bowler - Diyon Weerapura (SSC)
Man of the Match - Eranga Rathnayake (SBC)

A special thanks also goes out the organising committee that comprised Balraj Rajarathnam, Navantha de Silva, Lalindra Fernando & Flavian Aponso. Hoping for the same next year and many years to come.
