Rooftop Cricket – Bringing the BBA Students in Mumbai Closer Together

 

On the 24th of September 2016, 15 students of S P Jain’s Mumbai campus travelled to the Mad Over Sports cricket field located in Hotel Shanti Doot, Dadar, to play a friendly match of cricket. As with any sports outing, the atmosphere was electric, and the excitement, palpable. The matches were to be for two hours, with seven players on one side and eight on the other – for a duration of five overs.

The grounds were located on the terrace of Shanti Doot, four stories above the ground level. Upon arrival, the teams were formed – team Flash and team Tupperware, both captained by the students. Team Tupperware decided to bat first, where some really talented student batsmen opened the game.
