Yesteryear cricketers met recently to revive the spirit of the game
We have heard of old students meet, but have you heard of old cricketers meet? One such meet was organised at the Miracle Sports Academy, a centre run by Miracle Software System, Bhogapuram, recently.
Cricketers, in the city, who played together during early 1980s and 1990s, assembled to play best of three T20s at the academy. While most of the veterans have played for the district, Andhra University or the state, a few reached the Ranji level.
The veterans included R. Vivekanand, R. V. Ch Prasad(Kinnu), J. Srikanth, K. Ramesh, SKA Hussain, K. Shyam Kumar, O. Lakshman Kumar, A. Venugopal, Prem Das, S.K Bangar Raju, Chandra Avvaru, U.V.L. N Raju, S. Krishna, Bhaskar, Y. Sivakumar, Ram Shankar and Vijay Mohan.
The yesteryear cricketers not only met to revive that old spirit of the game and camaraderie but for a good cause also. They felicitated former Hyderabad Ranji cricketer Mahendra Kumar. The Vice-President of VDCA P.R. Narayanswami and CEO of Miracle Software System Lokam Prasad were present.
