NEW CRICKET TOURNAMENT JAN 12 to FEB 17, 2019


Hope everyone had a great Christmas!! Now as outdoor T20 bylaws are out of our way and released for community feedback, time to focus on other topics.

On Dec 14th (on WhatsApp and FB), we shared details about upcoming INDOOR CRICKET TOURNAMENT (#T20HIGHOCCT2019). Hope your team got a chance (12+ days) to assess its participation. Now the enrollment is open for exactly the same outlined conditions:
