BENS beat JOES by Innings and 27 Runs to win the MACK - CRONER Trophy
Tall and lanky right-arm fast-bowler Geethal Fernando destroyed the Josephian batting claiming a match bag of 14 wickets for 70 Runs (7 for 16 in the first innings including a hat-trick and 7 for 54 in the second innings) as St. Benedict’s College annihilated St. Joseph’s College by Innings and 27 runs in the Schools annual traditional encounter played for the Mack-Croner trophy which was concluded at Kotahena today. (20th Feb 2016)

Bens skipper Thulina Dilshan won the toss and elected to field first and after being 25 for 1, the Josephian batting crumbled lasting only 14.4 overs. Eight batsmen fell without troubling the scores. In the 13th over, Geethal picked up a hat-trick taking the wickets of Shevon Fonseka, Malshan Rodrigo and Charuka Raveen.

This is the first outright win in the 7th encounter played for the MACK - CRONER Trophy in memory of two great players from the two schools Malcolm Mack and Trevor Croner of St. Benedict’s College and St. Joseph’s College respectively. Bens last beat Joes 13 years ago in 2003 under the captaincy of Jeremy Saverymuthapulle.

Geethal Fernando was adjudged The Man of the Match and Best Bowler, while Shehan Fernando won the award for the Best Batsman.

St. Joseph’s College – 39 all out in 14.4 overs – Kevin Corteling 15, Revan Kelly 14, Geethal Fernando 7/16, Poorna Charuka 2/20
and following on, 134 all out - Geethal Fernando 7/54, Madushan Kularatne 2 for 50.

St. Benedict’s College – 200/7 Declared - Shehan Fernando 61 not out, 35, Poorna Charuka 37 not out, Dinetha Basnayake 20, Madushan Kularatne 24

Congratulations to the team, MIC Mr. Vivian Saverymuthapulle and Coach for this resounding victory which has brought great honour to our Alma Mater.
