It was a good sunny day in the city of Awka as Cricketers from all parts of the state (both male and female) converged at the Bishop Crowther Seminary Cricket Oval for the kick-off of the first ever Anambra State Cricket League.
Three clubs namely; BCS OLD BOYS CRICKET CLUB, ROYAL CRICKET CLUB and UNITY CRICKET CLUB registered with the Anambra State Cricket League Management Committee ably chaired by Charles Ifeanyichukwu Obasi.
The opening match was a twenty overs game between BCS OLDBOYS CC and ROYAL CC. Royal CC won the toss and decided to bowl first. The first ball dropped at 10.30am with so much enthusiasm from the players and spectators alike who have yearned for opportunities to play and watch good Cricket. BCS Old boys batted first and scored 95 runs (all out) in 14.4 overs.
The match saw the presence of some enthusiastic primary school pupils who participated in the just concluded introductory cricket course for primary schools. The kids could not hide their excitement as they watched live cricket games for the first time in their lives.
Electronic scoring was introduced for more accurate documentation of results by the Anambra State League Management Committee. Scorers were trained on how to use the application to redefine how cricket is administered, shared and analysed.
The league continues next week Saturday 17th October 2015, at the Bishop Crowther Seminary Cricket Oval.
