The enrollment for this season has again reached unprecedented numbers. It’s highest figure so far, explains in itself that the previous seasons were highly successful.
Even though cricket is not the national game of India but going by the treatment that it gets here, this sport is second to none. And it’s an eminent fact that it is quite impossible to keep us Indians away from Cricket for long. Take our example as Team Entigrity. We held our very own cricket tournament EPL (Entigrity Premier League) under lights in the summer and now as winter is setting feet in the region we are once more going to start yet another season of this beautiful and entertaining game.
The format of this season is a lot similar to the previous one. Starting with the participation, at over 130 players, the enrollment for this season has again reached unprecedented numbers. It’s the highest figure so far, explains in itself that the previous seasons were highly successful. Also, the mild winter and cool breeze of the evening make the conditions just ideal to play. Honestly, we wanted it to be this way.
This day coincides with the debut of day-night test cricket in Kolkata. That match will be played with a pink ball which is the symbolic color of women. Aren’t you thinking whether women can play this gentlemen’s game? Let me tell you that our tournament isn’t just limited to gentlemen but ladies too are an equal part of it. Speaking of ladies, we have carried forward almost everything that we had in the previous season. Only this time the participation of the ladies is almost double of what we had seen previously. Therefore, apart from certain tweaks in the rules that gives them a better chance in the power game playing besides men, most of the things are pretty much the same.
The teams, Bill.com Bulls, Drake Drake Dragons, QB Kings (now QB Titans), Lacerte Lions, Xero Swordians, and UltraTax Panthers are now joined by ProSeries Eagles and CCH Champs. They will be divided into two pools and play in a round-robin format to qualify for the playoffs.
Notably, all the teams are named after the accounting software we use; little work-related things at play won’t be bad, isn’t it? Also, our media team had to toil a little and design new logos for each of them. The old ones are now obsolete.
As the teams are now completely shuffled, most of the players from the past season will be playing under new colors and captains. The player auctions in itself was an eventful day and such was the excitement for involvement that our folks gathered to participate in it on a weekend! In all it has been a crazily exciting gala of planning and preparations for our much-awaited and (one of the) favorite events of the year. We want to make it more special by inviting the families of the players to cheer them up.
Now that all the pieces are already set, this season already promises to be more entertaining, cheerful and high on sportsmanship & team building than ever before. Let’s see which gem from TEAM ENTIGRITY shines the most and entertains better than every other. And let’s see if the defending champions Lacerte Lions will be able to win it again or some other team will take the crown away from them.
