The 1st RCB Fans Cricket Tournament
Yes it happened! On Sunday morning, i got a call from fellow fan Gnanashekar (RCB freak on the site) saying, 'Dude, 5 teams have turned up. Now come and organise a tournament'!
I had barely gotten up from bed, and here i was, being literally forced to conduct a tournament i was hardly prepared for. To cut a long story short, i went to the ground, and in fact organised a successful tournament!
5 teams from all parts of the city turned up, and i even played for one of them. 3 teams got a bye to the 2nd round and the other 2 teams played a game to decide which of them will join the 3 in the semis.All matches were of 8 overs a side.
I played for the Ants Academy, and to my own surprise, i played like a champ . Praveen Gupta (Wizard Prince) was even witness to my exploits! I got about 3 wickets, took a lovely catch and plundered about 25 runs in 7 balls while batting . That we still lost the game is another story
The tournament was won by a team called 'Danger Boys', who had come from beyond Attibele, a place on the outer periphery on Bangalore. And they were thrilled to bits when i presented them with RCB caps as the Winners Prize
This is just the beginning, and very soon, i shall be a conducting a tournament on a much bigger and better platform. Until then, enjoy the video below...
