Uttar Pradesh: The Hub Of Cricket
Being the largest state of India, many big sports personalities have come from this state. In Cricket this state has produced few of the most popular all- rounders like Suresh Raina and Piyush Chawla. When it comes to the Indian pace attack, we have R P Singh and Praveen Kumar. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for the budding cricketers who are participating in Schools India Cup.
This season, two schools are new entries whereas St. Don Bosco College and Paul International School are associated with SSPF since its first year. In Cricket, Uttar Pradesh is the state where highest number of districts have been played under Schools India Cup 2017 till date.
When it comes to pan India reach, SSPF has large number of schools playing under Schools India Cup. Just to mention the versatility if we talk about Cricket, 5 states and 9 districts have taken part in the cluster level tournament so far. In these districts, 109 matches have been completed.
One can imagine the outreach of such grass roots program that under these 506 matches more than 1,500 children have taken part. These figures are only for one sport i.e. Cricket but apart from this Football, Volleyball, Basketball and Athletics are also under SSPF this year.
So let’s celebrate the sporty spirit of Schools India Cup and wish all players registered under SSPF best of luck for the tournament. Now our all eyes and wishes are with Lakhimpur schools who will be in face off with one another from 19th June.
