When Covid19 disrupted the Cricketing plans of this group of ardent Cricket loving youngsters from this almost cricket-fanatic locale in Chennai, India, they vowed to come back at the earlier chance, and MPT Champions 2020 is how they honour that commitment.
Comprising 5 teams in two groups, the tournament is star-studded with all the local favourites in the fray. The tournament will be played at the MPT Grounds, New Washermenpet, Chennai. The teams face each other in Round 1 with top 2 teams from the groups moving to a knock-out Semi-Final, and then the grand final the same evening.
Seeing names of some of the popular teams in the fixtures, one can understand why the ground is already abuzz with excitement.
When interviewed, the players are ecstatic at the prospect of being able to play after a small break and expect that this is just the beginning of slowly resuming normal playing. When asked what is so special about this tournament, the players were enthusiastic about restarting playing after a break at the ground where they learned this very game as toddlers.
MPT Champions, the organizing committee of the tournament says that never before have they felt the need to motivate youngsters to stay connected to the game and actively participate so they stay fit, motivated and spirited. We couldn't agree with them more.
Scorewala wishes all the participating teams and players good luck. You are great ambassadors of the game.
