Cricket is the most popular game in India, being played in every nook and cranny of the nation and we all know it! But, over the years the popularity of the game is deteriorated by the organizers just to earn as much money as possible from the tournaments. The big money comes from the participants and hence, restricting the small town boys to participate, as their financials never allows them to do so.
Despite the race to earn money, here we are proud to cover a tournament which started right after India lifted the ICC cricket World Cup in 1983, by the name Indira Gandhi Smarak Cricket Tournament and to our astonishment the organizers successfully made it a legacy!
Before, we step in to know about the organizers and the participants, we would like to walk you through to the format of the game:
Entry is FREE (very uncommon nowadays!)
Travel Cost reimbursement
And in return, what they seek for ?
They crave to see good cricket amongst the teams coming from different states, districts ; Players coming from different backgrounds, representing their communities and healthy cricketing actions which money can't satisfy!
So, where all the money they spend comes from ?
The organizing team manages the money they spend for the successful conduction & completion of the tournament! The organizers are Govt. Teachers, businessmen, shopkeepers and IAS (Pankaj Pandey, posted in Assam). Even a few of them play for the district and are above 32 years of age. Which itself is a great inspiration for the youngsters out there!
