The Sachins, Yuvrajs, Dravids and Dhonis of SNS College of Engineering are off for their first outside venture. They are one of the 32 teams registered for the CFE Bi Decennial Twenty20 cricket tournament to be held between January 18 - January 20,2008 at CECRI CaMPUS, Karaikudi.
The team will be captained by L.Maikannan of CSE Department who set the ground ablaze with his knock of 63 from 36 balls in the intramural tournament. His ally would be C.Manoj of ECE Department who is a good tactician and a reliale wicket keeper. The team also features the likes of hard hitting Muthu Ezhilarasan(IT), the more than useful allrounder Jeyamohan(ECE) and the canny operator Pradeepraj(ECE) in the ranks. The team has a good line up of batsman and bowlers and most importantly unity and intensity. They will be coached and managed by Mr.D.Saravanamoorthy, PD, SNSCE.
The schedule pitts them against Under 22 Trichy team in the round of 32 and the defending champions (if they go through) to the round of 16. To add to the non flip side, the players were busy with University Exams and Pongal Holidays that deprived them of any practice. However the team set off in a confident mood to Karaikudi. Mr.Saravanamoorthy said "Of course, we have a lot of things against us. But we are bothered about looking ahead and not looking behind."
Well, we have got no option but to admire their grit and wish them best of luck. All the Best SNSCE XI
