Season 6 of IIM Shillong’s annual intra-college Cricket tournament, Kopda Cup, kick-started yesterday.
In the past two days, the seven competing teams have played two games each. In one of the close games, Dabang Dudes beat Lafange Parindey by 1 run when they defended a paltry 36, thanks to their awesome bowling. There were also games where the opposition was totally decimated. Khatron Ke Khiladi mauled Manoranjan Ke Baap in what was a clinical performance by the former.
The audience (which included students from both batches, team managers, faculty, faculty’s children and workers) had their bit of fun outside the field with amazing Hindi Commentary by Dev Sir, Siddhant, Aditya and Nirmit, to name a few. Specifically, Bai Surali and Asad Ali’s cases were taken the most by the commentators.
People who turned out in large numbers to witness Satish Kalal’s brilliance with the bat were disappointed when Gujju (Satish) failed to smash those huge sixes he is famous for, in both the matches.
