Registration started for Technopark premier league 2014
For us Indians, cricket isn’t merely a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a field. Cricket has created Gods and made us worship them with devotion. It has been in our blood for more than half a century. Cricket has made many…and destroyed many too. It’s not a wonder that most of us want it to be declared as the national game. On playing par with the scenario of changing society, Technopark has also introduced the cricket gaming season for techies, proudly known as ‘Technopark Premier League’. Launched on 2001, it still continues to take place every year with much pomp and pride.
