Cricket is one of the most prized and cherished sports in Pakistan since a long long time.
Our earlier cricketers have faced a number of difficulties to prove themselves in this field and had to go through long procedures to get into the limelight and make their mark on a national followed by global level.
Today, however, the scenario is different, big brands sponsor and support the propagation of sports worldwide to give the young sprouting talent a chance to showcase their efforts on a wider scale.
A renowned brand, Red Bull Pakistan recently sponsored a cricket tournament RED BULL CAMPUS CRICKET 2014 where super 11 teams comprising of different universities all over Pakistan battled on the grounds against each other aiming to be a part of the World Finals to be held in London in the future.
The finale to the Super 11 was held in Karachi at the Moin Khan Academy with Geo Super covering the event live, where Karachi University & University of Sargodha rose against each other for a 20 over match to take the winner trophy home. Before the match, a press conference was held where notable cricket celebrities like Moin Khan, Rashid Latif, Nadeem Khan, Faisal Iqbal, Anwar Ali, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Khurram Manzoor and others were brought into the limelight and they spoke of how lucky they found the youth of today to be blessed with such tremendous opportunities to get exposure and grow on their talent.
After the press release was delivered, the audience that included some renowned bloggers and influencers as well, left no chance to click photos with the cricket dignitaries. Once the clicks and shots were done, the audience anxiously went outdoors to enjoy the match.
Besides the match being a gripping one, the eye catching feature was the drones, which the people, including myself thought to be cameras capturing the event, but they were simply Red Bull drones pelleting Red Bull cans on every four and six hitting the fence.
Karachi University was the team to beat in the Super 11 stage of Red Bull Campus Cricket and unfortunately for their rivals they were way too mighty for most of them throughout the decisive round. KU is now set to represent Pakistan in the world finals to be staged in London later in the year.
Overall, the event was great, with supportive cheering crowd, apt players and techy eye catching gadgets to grab attention.
Keep it up Team RED BULL and all the best to KU team for the finals! 🙂
