Many of the forty-eight boys who played in the Farmington C.C. hard-tennis-ball tournament on Saturday, 24 August, were MCA members or associates. They all judged the tournament, played at Drake Sports Park in West Bloomfield, a huge success and an excellent model for spreading the game. The format enabled quite experienced youth cricketers to play alongside novices in an enjoyable, yet competitive environment. MCA congratulates Kamalakara Ambati and other officers of Farmington C.C., and eagerly anticipates further such events.
In the final, played under lights, the Panthers, led by Smit Chitre, narrowly defeated the Fireballs, led by Mithil Reddy.
