Two 40 overs matches, Hindu versus Hartley OBA Sydney Open teams and Hindu versus Hartley OBA Sydney Over 40 teams, were played. Ranjithan’s massive 121 runs not out took Hindu’s Open team to a comfortable victory, but it lost in the match between Over 40 teams.

In reply, Hartley managed to score only 152 runs in 30 overs, losing all wickets. Ratnam Ranjithan, who opened the match for the Hindu Open team, blasted a massive 121 runs, which was the game changer in favour of Hindus.
