Cricket @ bbcourt May 4, 2007

Posted by Karan in IIIT centric.
trackback

Summer in IIITH has both its deprivations and charms. Among an interesting aspect of the latter, is night cricket in the basketball court. Be it the nerds working on a project in the campus, the mothballed who just while their time away or the professionals, who intern with a company; this is the time to come together and have some good fun. The mid night game is a great stress buster.

The test-cum one day matches, two innings per side of eight overs each provide ample opportunities to the amateurs like Somani, Alok, Manish, Kulbir etc as well as the seasoned cricketers like Pagare, Mahaveer and Gupta. Must mention here that the star batsmen, undoubtedly is Vig and Somani, a terrific allrounder. And yeah, who can forget our dear coach, Dandeshwar! His tips can spruce up any players’ game 😛 Meanwhile, Mahaveer has become famous for the hiding he’s received, and is fondly known as t**teshwar 😀 The other day we played this ‘false questions’ game, and it turned out to be awesome! A lot of facts came out during the game, like Mahaveer’s agony, Pagare’s apparent love towards this chick X (Cant reveal her name here). So much so, that whenever X passes by bb court, Pagare immediately hits a boundary or takes a wicket; and Manish screams “abhijeetp@students” 😛 . Lets hope the chick does contact him 😀

All in all, great timepass and good way to stay away from the laptop.

aahh, I wanted to play midnight cricket from the day lights were put up there.
Never did happen for me, enjoy it to the fullest while you can :).

I think the blog doesnt describe the game that well ….. I believe its more than that
And Ya I agree with Mahaveer … many more t**teshwars r in the making and Even I was hurt once but that was at least 8 months ago
One thing good is that no matter what Its the time when almost everybody in IIIT is awake and in an active state

But I still miss playing in the ground where there r no restrictions whatsoever

12. Cr@cker - May 5, 2007

I agree with Manish , U should disclose the story thats came out in the game 🙂 . I think as the game is on , the number of t**teswar will increase and that will be the real thing to watch in the midnight game .
