BENS clinch Schools T20 Championship
St. Benedictís College emerged the Singer U19 T20 champions when they defeated fancied St. Peterís College, Bambalapitiya by 22 runs in the finals played at the Khettarama International Cricket Stadium yesterday. (9th April)

St. peterís who came in to the game as hot favourites having put up sterling performances in the earlier matches failed to deliver the goods when it needed most.

Credit to the Bens as our bowlers Geethal Fernando and Madushan Kularatne made the much needed breakthroughs at crucial stages of the Peterites innings which paved the way for the victory.

The Peterite batting was in tatters in their run chase of a gettable target of 115 runs. Geethal and Madushan sent the Peterites reeling to 13 for 5 in the third over and then 20 for 7 by the fifth over.

Earlier in the day, St. Benedictís College taking first lease of the wicket was given a sound start by openers Skipper Mahel Jayalath and Thulina Dilshan who together added 71 runs in just 43 balls.
