On a typical Amsterdam Summer day, the weatherman’s forecast said it would rain! TCS Cricket lovers were not disappointed as TCS NL Cricket Tournament 2016 was organised successfully at Qui Vive Cricket Club. QuiVive CC made sure both their grounds and necessary infrastructure arrangements were made available for the entire day for the tournament to happen.
The Club house was open for TCSers to make sure the players had access to the tea/coffee/bar to buy refreshments and drinks. There were 14 teams who had turned up for the event and after 18 League games, 3 exciting super overs, power-hitting semi-finals, the stage was all set for The Grand finale!
When the teams lead by Hardeep (ABN3) and Ganesh (ABN1) were set for the final clash, the rain God had different plans. Finally, when the Rain God decided to show some mercy, the game was started after a delay of 30 mins as it had rained heavily. Some huge sixes and quick fall of wickets from both the teams ensured that the match was not over till the last ball. In the end, ABN1 won the nail-biting final in the last ball of the match and emerged as Champions of TCS NL Cricket Tournament 2016. A Big Congrats to the winning team…!!!
Our sincere thanks to TCS Management for organizing their event at Qui Vive! We hope to continue the good relationship going forward.
