Hawks soar to victory in 2013 Cricket Tournament

Area cricket fans cheered on eight local teams during the 2013 University of Houston-Clear Lake Cricket Tournament, hosted by the UH-Clear Lake Indian Students Association in late June. Eight teams participated in the well-attended 13th annual event, in which the UH-Clear Lake Hawks bested the second place team Bhaijaan X1 by 11 runs.   
The UHCL Hawks fell behind in the early quarter of the match, but with the assistance of UHCL’s all-rounder, Rohit Bhogaraju, the Hawks grabbed the lead. Bhogaraju scored 21 runs, which earned him the “Man of the Match” award, and led the Hawks to victory.
 “It took me three years to build this team,” UHCL student and Hawks captain Prashanth Manne says. “All the guys showed great teamwork and I am proud of them. This victory gave us more confidence that we can win next year’s tournament as well.”
Cricket is growing in popularity as more people are becoming familiar with this centuries-old sport. UHCL’s Indian Student Association will host the tournament again beginning in early summer of 2014.
