It wasn’t even a month before the laurels that the institute won at NIT Trichy had sunk in, before the fiasco happened at NIT Surat. It was (it won’t be wrong to call it so) one of the most forgettable outings for the sports teams that went there.

With lots of vigour, hope and enthusiasm the institute team for cricket, table tennis (men & women), basketball (men & women), kabbadi and chess (men and women) set out on a 2 day journey for Tiruchirapally. On arrival, the teams were received by the institute bus which took them on a 1 hr journey to the campus of NIT Trichy. The hospitality of the institute was very good and all the NIT Rourkela teams were treated well. Day 0 i.e. on 1st, the teams went on to see the respective courts & grounds and discussed the pros & cons along with the strategies necessary for the new environment.

After the Super 6 tournament in MS Swaminathan Hall of Residence, a cricket tournament also kicked off in the Homi Bhabha Hall of Residence on 2nd February in the evening. This tournament is purely an Intra-Hall tournament in which only the cricket maniacs residing in Homi Bhabha Hall can participate. The tournament started with around 40 teams registering, but the number was expected to increase as the tournament goes on. The tournament is expected to last for 3-4 days.

The 3rd edition of Futsal was greeted with marginal participation by students of NIT-R, with number of participating teams being just 20. The Football event was organised in Sachin Tendulkar Sports Complex alongside the Super 8 cricket event. The event was organised by the Hall Management Council and launched on Saturday evening of last weekend.
The event was played in four rounds and scoring rules of the game were similar to that of a regular one. But, unlike a regular football game, each side consisted of only 4 players and time allotted to the first and second half of the game was seven and a half minute each, making it a game of just 15 minutes! The boundary limit of the playing field was slightly greater than that of a tennis court, having bamboo goal posts, which were also smaller in size. Registration for the event was not charged and a player was not restricted to play for a single team.
