“It is a Six”, announced the commentator, as the ball sailed over the extra cover boundary bringing an end to the inaugural chapter of SPL (Sheshnag Premiere League) and crowning the Sheshnag-11 as its first champions.
The SPL, organised by the Army exceeded all expectations and was received very well by all the participating teams and the spectators in Sheshnag. The people in large numbers from Nagakoti, Bhabal top and MG Pass were in attendance during the finals between Chandanwari-11 and Sheshnag-11. The tournament fostered brotherhood, unity, equality and also inspired competitive spirit amongst the participating teams.
The bonhomie displayed during the entire tournament, which was played on a league basis, was also a reflection of the youth’s aspirations for a peaceful, healthy engagement far from the violence being perpetrated by vested interests.
Conducted concurrently with the ongoing Amarnath yatra, the tournament also helped in its smooth and befitting conduct.
