Six-a-side cricket to be conducted !!

It’s going to be a real test for cricket’s big hitting boys when the Active 24 Super Sixes cricket tournament gets under way at various venues here January next.After successfully seeing through two editions of the Twenty20 version this year, Active 24 HR Services decided to dish out something special for the cricket crazy fans of the city. And, that’s how the ‘Six-A-Side’ cricket idea took shape.

The tournament, which features six players, six overs and played in a span of six days, offers fast and furious action in a festival atmosphere.“We had the Super Sixes on our mind for quite some time. But, we preferred to go slow on it as it involved the right kind of planning and a good amount of hard work,” says Rachna D’Silva, Managing Director, Active 24 HR Services.

“We know it is not going to be an easy task for us considering the size and craze of the tournament. But, thankfully we have an efficient team to see through the event with ease,” she adds.“The participants will be split into four separate pools such as schools, colleges, corporate and open.“The toppers from each pool will clash in the semi-final,” says Marvin D’Silva of Active 24 HR.

“There is going to be something for every player, leave alone a team, as we have shortened the boundary lines. So, sixes are going to come easy and with it the rewards,” he adds.

“Serious cricket is being played in every nook and corner of the city but not such a fun filled event. It is happening for the first time, and believe me the fans are going to crave in for more such events,” says Rachna. The Super Sixes champion will walk away with a cash purse of Rs. 25,000. The next in line will take home Rs.10,000.

Special prize

There will also be a special cash prize of Rs. 5,000 for the batsman who scores the maximum sixes besides gift vouchers for the hat-trick and double hat-trick sixes in every match.

Entries close with the organisers on December 15. For registration details, contact 9092366666 and 90920 99221.
