Battle of the Golds Australia OBA T20

Inaugural T20 encounter between MCOBA and DSSOBA

The first ever T20 encounter between the Australian old boys associations of Mahanama College and DS Senanayake College was played out at the Cavelier's Cricket Club grounds in Clayton on Sunday the 11th of September. DSS won the match by 4 wickets.

Despite overcast conditions and intermittent rain throughout the day, the event was well attended by old boys and their families from Mahanama and DSS along with past pupils and their families of Visakha Vidyalaya and Muesues College who played an invitation T20 match as the curtain raiser. Everyone enjoyed the day out with DJ Rush spinning out some good tunes early on and a papare band playing baila towards end the day.

The T20 match between Visakha and Muesues was keenly fought with the girls playing on bravely through rain. In the end, Visakha prevailed thanks to a couple of good knocks from their batswomen.

The T20 between Mahanama and DSS got underway soon after. DSS won the toss and chose to take the field. They bowled extremely well and aided by outcast conditions and a juicy wicket, did a good job in making batting difficult for Mahanama. Mahanama however batted on gallently and ended their innings with 81 runs for loss of 7 wickets. The sun was out when DSS openers came out to bat. They started well and were coasting along before Mahanama fought back with a few quick wickets. However DSS did well to not panic and reached their target with 2 overs to spare for the loss of 6 wickets.

The day ended after the winners trophies and medals were presented to DSS and Visakha with Mahanama and Mueseus collecting the runners up medals.
