[India Cup 2]: So long and thanks for all the fish

by Shreyas Bhargav (The Pythons) 91 months ago Editor's Pick
Fairy tales don't always have a happy ending, do they? India Cup 2 for Punjab has come to an end, thanks to the defeat at the hand of UP. It was one of the most enjoyable tournaments I have been a part of. Speaking on behalf of the staff, it has been a pleasure competing against the big boys of the league. I would like to use this space to thank everyone who supported us, and the managers who trained their players in view of this tournament. Hang on, who am I you ask? I am the Assistant Coach of Punjab. 

There has been a lot said about Punjab, some good, and certain things bad. It is not my motive to dwell in the negativity, but rather appreciate the impact our team made on people who follow the tournament. We had a very good head coach who was open to all the discussions and suggestions from the assistant coaches. In the beginning of the tournament, we clearly were not the favorites (not that this status has changed). It was good to see our name along side Assam, pop up in the Hitwicket facebook page, and a big thanks to the developers for that.

Our aim was to develop a strategically strong game which either worked (66% of the time, it worked all the time) or came back to bite us in our face. I hope we have shown that being a strong team on paper (or being a weak team), does not always bring people closer to a cup final. Hopefully more people from Punjab start playing this game and looking forward to more upsets in India Cup.

Live long and Prosper.

Well written!! I must say Punjab were not favorites from the start, but in the IC draft list Kashyap mentioned that Punjab has done well in draft by adding bowlers to their array..  and i had sensed from that point that Punjab will surprise many!!
Punjab performed well because of the team balance(that most teams in india cup and also in the main league dont have) they had!! I must say.. to rise as top 2 in group 2 was really good for u guys!!

and i followed ur games very closely..  Well done guys..~!!
