OBU Sydney, AustrlaiaSydney Bens runners-up in prestigious six-a-side tourney by SRI FERNANDOPULLE

Fresh from defeating the Old Josephians in the
traditional Over-40 clash, the rejuvenated Old Bens entered a team for the Over-40s six-a-side tournament organised by a leading cricket establishment and finally ended up as worthy 'runners up'.
This was due to the great performances of Bens skipper, the 'evergreen' Tony Appathurai -a former Ben, Tamil Union and New South Wales Grade cricketer and others like Clement Christie-David, Ronnie Almeida, Prakash Fernandopulle, Julian Pillai, Malcolm de Zilwa and Kevin Pereira (an Old Joe who likes to be with the Old Bens).
The team won 7 matches on the trot and due to heavy pressure and fading light, were beaten in a close encounter in the final.
