Mr. Robin Singh Jr., Cricketer advised the players to imbibe their sporting spirit rather than winning in their game. Mr. Singh said that he had come from village background and he had to face many hurdles before making into Indian test team. One should not lose hope and should have faith in oneself and in God. Mr. Singh said this tournament is happening at the right time since the cricket fever has again gripped the crowd with India winning the test series against Australia. Youth in the Indian team has proved that they have the talent, similarly the players in this tournament should play at their best.”
Mr. Sameer Bahadur, Zonal Head, Star Health and Allied Insurance said that Cricket is like life. Everybody wants to remove the successful person from the field. If we have problems in life then we should think of batsman. He faces bombardment of balls & survives. Cricket is by chance, so the Life.”
