Holmes Pollard & Stott (HPS) walked away with the coveted title of ‘Champions’ at the annual 6-a-side softball cricket tournament organised by Derana. HPS put up an impressive performance with both bat and ball in each of their exciting matches to win over their competition. HPS used a unique blend of youth and experience to hold strong through every battle to finally come out on top.

This year, 24 agencies partook in not only cricket matches, but also in an assortment of other games and contests. The team from HPS, headed by Eshan Fernando, demonstrated an excellent performance, winning their way through matches and rounds, until finally hoisting the golden cup the same evening.

One of the major events aside from the matches was the African Queen contest, which was truly in keeping with this year’s theme. Here, the participant from HPS was awarded second place after a stunning performance.

Team spirit and dedication paid off as HPS took home the championship trophy at the end of the day. With its diverse and multifaceted talents, HPS looks to win more awards of all kinds in future.
