The air reverberating with energy; every eye in the room glued to the black-ribbed orange ball; anticipating, for it to reach its destination – this was the scenario seen during the Quarterfinals of the Centies Champions Trophy-17 held at PSG Tech Indoor Sports Complex on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of February this year.
“We are not a team of 11 but we promise that you can find the right meaning of entertainment”, was the tagline of the event. It definitely met its standards – not only was it entertaining, it also portrayed the dedication, perseverance, and determination of every team member present.
