Something like this is being organised for the first time post pandemic as an opportunity for the students community to once again participate in big tournaments and compete on a larger scale. This will also help us in identifying a cricketing talent pool which can be nurtured for the future by providing better facilities and support, both in sports and studies. Colleges from Hyderabad, Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam participated in large numbers and we already have over 900 students from 64 teams, 32 from Hyderabad, 16 each from Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam, each consisting of 15 players.
