    Guy's I am Back. Can't believe it's more than a year since I updated our site.

    Anyhow as they say "BETTER LATE THAN NEVER".

    Well First of all Let me recognize What a fantastic Season we have had so far. Finished on top of  the league in regular season. Some of the key achievements for this season so far are REACHING THE FINALS and beating All-India for the first time. Also we have beaten Some heavy weights of the league Lions (Twice-once in regular season and 2nd round), Juniors (Twice-once in regular season and in the semi-finals), Pakistan (Once, we'll need to do it again cause they are in the Finals as they are playing some excellent cricket as well), Cosmos (once). There were couple of losses once to Bloomfield and once to the newcomers Lakbima whom we did eventually beat in the 2nd round.

    This has been the most rewarding season of all and we have a great chance to win it all this year. Be ready and focused for the task ahead of us. Also I just got of the phone with Inderjit he told me that the game might be moved to this Saturday Sept23/06. He will be in touch with all of you.

    Guy's I know the season was filled with some great performances throughout the year. There are few that I remember one was  Harvinder's unbeaten hundred against Lions in the 2nd round where he smashed them all over the place. Manjit's Hundred against Lions in the regular season. Inderjit's excellent knock against All-India and his Five wicket haul in the semi-final against Juniors. I know there are lot more and each and every one of us has played a role in the teams success.

    The key this year was the addition of some young new talent in the form of Harvinder  Jaggy  Sam and also an Experienced Campaigner Manjit who has brought some much needed Solidification in the middle order both batting and bowling wise.

    Practice is this Thursday at 6:00PM. All be there as we will discuss some issues . I will be taking some team pictures this coming Saturday and will be posting it here with all the details of the Final Match.

    Guy's If you want to share any success stories and good of bad experience of this season please write me and e-mail at ajohal@shaw.ca . I will do some more work around here in the coming few days so bear with me as I organize this  space. Thank You for being patient.

    Guy's I hereby take this opportunity to Bid Farewell to our Great Friend Our Founder Anil Bhatt as he is moving to Calgary. Anil Bhai we will miss your commitment and your passion for Cricket over the years. We wish you well in whatever you pursue in future and we promise to keep alive the spirit of Cricket amongst ourselves and definitely will be looking to take care of our "back yard" and we certainly know what you mean by that!! Take care and be safe our friend!!! Guys I have started couple of topics regarding our discussion at Ajay bhai's house the other night. So please go to the message boards and post your thoughts Aug13/05

    IndiaXI/AllIndia We finally had a game after a few weeks of layoff and the laziness showed in our performances. All India batted first and piled 180 runs with Suresh contributing nice 80 runs. Niel bowled a tight line and picked up couple of wickets in the process. Andy took 3 with Sunny Harwant and Inderjit sharing the rest of the wickets. Our Batting flopped again.Other than Jassy's patient knock of 30 odd runs and Andy's quick fire 24 nothing is worth mentioning. I will be looking forward to this Thursday's Practice to sort out some of the bugs for our double header coming up this weekend. July24/05

    IndiaXI/Juniors We won the toss and elected to field. Juniors(Not actually!!Juniors e.g. David Hakes and Ron Dipchand are above 40 LOL) made hefty 230 with Harvinder and Ehsan adding 50 each. We tumbled around for 143. With Andy Sunny Jassy and Neil contributing some runs for the cause. Summary of the game DROPPED CATCHES about 10 of them. Don't need to say anymore!! Also guys I do need some feedback from all of you about the site if you like it or not! Cause if you don't I will go back to my shell again He He!!!
