Dear friends, Cricket Teams, Managers and FINACT members
Please join me in congratulating the Turbo Tamils for winning the 2013 FINACT T 20 Cricket Rolling Trophy. And best wishes to the Telugu Lions, the Runners up. Well done!!
What a great tournament it has been. A record number of 12 teams participated with more than 160 cricketers taking part. These were the 12 teams:
Sunday 17 March 2013 was a glorious day weather wise with clear blue skies with just a few clouds drifting by. And cricket wise, you will agree we could not have asked for a better tournament.
We had a plethora of dignitaries at the Palmerston ovals. Our sincere thanks to FINACT Patron, ACT Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Ms Joy Burch MLA, ACT Shadow Minister for Sports, Mr Steve Doszpot MLA and the Chair of Canberra Multicultural Community Forum (CMCF), Mr Sam Wong, for their support and presence. Despite being so busy you still made it to the ovals, that too on a Sunday. And what a great crowd! Mothers, sisters and grandmothers along with fathers, uncles, aunts —- thank you all for being there.
Sincere thanks to all the FINACT cricket sub committee members who were present there. Arun and Sanjay made sure that all the finer details were taken care of as Chakra was on the field.
We extend our special thanks to the Silver Sponsor of this tournament – Commonwealth Bank – for their support. Hope to working collaboratively with our corporate supporters in years to come.
The FINACT XI has been announced and they will play against Pakistan next month for the Tendulkar-Akram Shield. Well done boys and hope you get the Shield this time.
Look forward to meeting all the players soon, perhaps we can plan a picnic.
