Hereâ€™s an account of how it happened atÂ ATHLEEMAÂ 2019-Season 7:
TheÂ ballÂ forÂ AnnualÂ Inter-CollegeÂ SportsÂ Festival,Â ATHLEEMA-Season 7 wasÂ setÂ rollingÂ onÂ CricketÂ fieldÂ atÂ Netaji SubhashÂ SportsÂ Complex, JasolaÂ on Wednesday,Â 13thÂ March 2019!
Teams from 9 different institutes competed forÂ Cricket, the most prestigious event in the 3-day gala affair.
After going through the preliminary stages,Â PGDAVÂ CollegeÂ comfortably outscoredÂ FOSTIIMA BusinessÂ CollegeÂ in the first Semi-Final.
In the second Semi-Final, despite a ferocious assault towards the end,Â JIMS Engineering Management Technical CampusÂ went on to lose toÂ Dyal SinghÂ College(E).
Going into the Finals,Â Dyal SinghÂ CollegeÂ (E)Â seemed to be favorites to win the trophy as they looked the stronger side based on the batting prowess they displayed in the previous matches. However,Â PGDAVÂ CollegeÂ had different ideas and they put up a stellar performance in the finals and it was literally a one-way traffic once the run chase started and they went on to triumph by a whopping 44 runs!
Throughout the tournament, the slower bowlers from PGDAVÂ CollegeÂ were worthy of credit for choking the scoring rate of opponents as they hardly provided the opponents with any freebies.
For his all-round performance withÂ ballÂ as well as bat,Â Prince ChoudharyÂ fromÂ PGDAVÂ CollegeÂ was adjudgedÂ Man of the Series. Also being the captain of his team, he went on to lift the glittering trophy for being the champion team.
