A cheque for AUS $100,000 (61,480) has been handed to Australian cancer charity You Can, courtesy of the Sony Foundation, Codemasters and Namco Bandai, thanks to strong sales of International Cricket 2010 on the PS3.

Whilst International Cricket 2010 is a Codemasters title, the game is represented in Australia by Namco Bandai.
