“A father is the one friend upon whom we can always rely.”
Cricket, known as the gentleman’s game, holds a special place in the hearts of sports enthusiasts worldwide. While professional cricket receives significant attention, there are numerous grassroots initiatives that allow individuals to indulge in the game’s passion and camaraderie. One such initiative is the Father’s Cricket League, a unique platform that celebrates fatherhood and provides an opportunity for dads to bond over the sport they love.
At PPSCIS, Father’s Day was celebrated on 24th June, 2023 as Father’s Cricket League among all the fathers of the students. The fathers were divided into 4 teams namely, Thunder Strikers (Red team), Phoenix Warriors (White team), Mighty Lions (Blue team) and Power Smashers (Yellow team). The Father’s Cricket League (FCL) was celebrated with the aim of promoting active father-child relationships and fostering a sense of community through cricket. It recognized the importance of quality time spent between fathers and their children and sought to create an environment where fathers could showcase their skills on the field while cherishing meaningful moments with their families. All the fathers participated with much enthusiasm, passion and zeal; whereas the students and the mothers roared with cheers and supported them with a sense of elation.
The winner of the Friendly Cricket Match is the Thunder Strikers.
