CRICKET: A GENTLEMEN'S GAME!

 

Cricket was invented in the vast fields of England, supposedly by shepherds who herded their flock. Later on this game was shown benevolence by aristocrats, and now has the stature of being England's national game. After a century now, cricket stands in the international arena, with a place of its own.

In all the terms cricket is being played at The Assam Valley School. Generally the School runs four sides, Under 12, Under 14, Under 16 and Under 19 level. The Inter-House Cricket competitions for boys are conducted annually. To encourage participation, the Boys’ Division has two sections – Senior and Intermediate. The cricket facilities include a dedicated ground with cricket turf and cemented nets. Net sessions are run throughout the week.

The 1st XI has around six fixtures in the form of Inter-School Tournaments, including Inter-School and club level matches on Saturdays and Sundays. Every year our team takes part in the prestigious tournaments like Inter-School District Cricket Tournament at Tezpur, Dhruve Pandove Memorial T-20 Cricket Tournament at YPS, Patiala, Invitational Cricket Tournament at Pinegrove School, Kaushali (H.P.), Maharaja Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Tournament at The Scindia School, Gwalior and Von Goldstein T20 Inter-School Cricket Tournament at BCS, Shimla.

The Assam Valley School has been organizing the “The AVS Invitational Cricket Tournament” since the year 2006 onwards in the school campus. Every year school cricket teams come from all over the country to take part in this tournament. Our boys have been representing District teams in various categories. We hope that AVS cricketers will earn name and fame for the School and for themselves.
