It was a Day & Night Tournament with 3 league matches per team and 20 overs per side. The semi-finals were held on 20th April, and the final match of the tournament was played on 1st May.
The thought behind organizing the cricket tournament was not just fitness but a team building initiative and engagement with our colleagues & the logistics industry. Our industry is very demanding and drains energy from everyone. This tournament will not just bring everyone closer but also give them time to step away from work and have some fun. Cricket is a passion for most of us and it’s a great feeling to be involved as a player especially in an activity that we immensely enjoy.”Yashpal Sharma, Managing Director, Skyways

- Man of the series: Mohd. Mohsin, Celebi Spartans
