Nation’s Trust Bank won the coveted MillenniumIT FSI Challenge Trophy beating Hatton National Bank despite a spirited batting partnership between HNB’s Captain Anush Perera and Shane Fernando. The cricket tournament was held at the MillenniumIT campus grounds in Malabe last week.
NTB’s Manoj Gayan and Thivanka Dabare put on a fine partnership to clinch the trophy after coming into the finals. Manoj Gayan was awarded the "Best Player of the tournament" trophy.
This year, ten financial services institutions took part in the second consecutive FSI Challenge tournament organised by MillenniumIT together with SUN Microsystems. Mr Duhan de Zilwa, Business Head of SUN Microsystems, said that this tournament was the ideal opportunity for them to promote camaraderie with their customers. “We have taken our business to the playing field as sport is an ideal occasion to foster friendships,” he added.
The other contenders at this 8-a-side tournament were, Sampath Bank, People's Bank, PABC Bank, Colombo Stock Exchange, Seylan Bank, DFCC Bank, Hatton National Bank, NDB Bank, Nation's Trust Bank and the National Savings Bank.
Last year’s tournament saw five banks participate and MillenniumIT was defeated by People's Bank who carried away the MillenniumIT FSI Challenge Trophy.
