In September 2018 The Majestic Cricket Club in Nellai organized an under 17 cricket tournament for the southern districts of Tamilnadu.
Eighteen teams from Madurai, Tuticorin and Tirunelveli districts gathered at the Majestic cricket ground in Palayamkottai for the knock out competition. Sri Jayendra entered two teams.
After some brilliant and exciting cricket the two teams to reach the final were Jayendra A and Jayendra B so we finished up playing ourselves in the battle for the trophy!
In the final Jayendra B were victorious despite being our junior side so they collected the trophy and a cash prize of Rs 25,000.
Jayendra A team had to be satisfied with a cash prize of Rs 15,000.
The Stars of the Tournament from our school were:
Dinesh Raj of Class 12 – Best Batsman
Arshad Ahmad Khan of class 9 –Best Bowler
Selva Harish of Class 11 – Player of the Tournament
The entire team and the Coach Mr.Rajasekar were appreciated by the Principal, Correspondent and the management for the Glorious Victory.
