The cricketing event commenced on February 10 and it’s finals were held on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. One of the biggest cricket tournaments of the University, it saw participation of 12 teams from across colleges. The event was declared open by Bishan Singh Bedi on February 10.

The finals and the award ceremony was attended by Cricketers Ajay Jadeja and Ajit Jadeja and Mr. Jitendre Lal, member Gujrat Chamber of Commerce. International Cricket Umpire, K. Hariharan, was also present at the event.

Krishnaraj Lal, Vice President, Khalsa, had the following to say, “As a student of such a prestigious college, it’s an honor to be a part of the Union. Mr. Jadega’s father served as an MP from my city, Jamnagar for 5 terms. So having Mr. Ajay Jadeja here is an even greater privilege. We are glad to have pulled off this event. Between juggling Lashkara (Khalsa’s Cultural Fest) and creating a bigger and better tournament, it has been nothing less than a challenge”.

Presently a Business Studies student at Shaheed Sukhdev College Of Business Studies, I plan to spend my years discovering what I am capable of. Books, movies and friends are on the top of my timetable and for me college is about having a good time and trying new things. I believe it’s better to do a few things well than a lot of them poorly. Punctuality is a virtue I am yet to experience.
