Champions are made from something they have deep inside of them-a desire, a dream, a vision
The most awaited cricket league of VSSUT, Burla named as Champions League was successfully organised by the East Hostel (Atri Hall Of Residence) during 29th March to 5th April. This league comprises of twelve teams from East, West, North hostels and self sustaining students of VSSUT. There are three teams from each sections from second years, pre-final years and final years. The League matches were played between all those twelve teams and eight teams qualified for the quarter finals held on 2nd and 3rd April of 2015. The first semi final was played between West Pre-final Year and East Pre-Final Year which was really a nail biting semi final in which there was lots of ups and downs and finally the West Pre-final year won by 10 runs.The second Semi final was played between the defending champions North final year and North Third year which was completely a one sided match won by the defending champions to enter to the finals for the two consecutive years. The final was held on 5th April 2015 in which the toss was won by the North Final years and they elected to bat first. Thanks to some tight bowling and fielding effort from the opening bowlers of West Prefinal year they were reduced to 8/3 in first 5 overs. But the explosive batting of Mr. Sohan and Mr. Jasobant from final year lead them to score a challenging 110 at the end of 15 overs.With the explosive opening start from Sumit and Seema from West Prefinal year the chase was on from the first over.With loss of both the openers in the 6th overs the chasing team was in a bit of trouble but due to the consistent performance of the Middle order batsmen Prajat and heroics from the Captain Kalpataru Palai and Arjun Parida, West third year won the match in the final over.They were unbeaten from the first match till the last match of the tournament proving to be the best team of the Champions Leaugue.There were some amazing moments during this tournament starting from 5 wickets in 2 runs by Alok(West Prefinal year), century by Mr. Nayan (North Final year) , Hat-trick sixes in the semifinal by Kalpataru(West Prefinal year).The arrangement made by the East hostel was really great. Hope everyone enjoyed the whole tournament.
