On 17 January, a group of CUHK students from different nationalities formed the University’s first-ever student cricket team and competed in an inter-varsity tournament organized by the Kowloon Cantons, last year’s winner of the Hong Kong T20 Blitz competition, against the University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Deepen Nebhwani (2nd left, front row), captain of the CUHK team, said, ‘CUHK performed remarkably well, holding their own in both matches. Despite falling short in the games, we put heavy pressure on our formidable opponents.’ The team looks forward to future fixtures with Cricket Hong Kong in a bid to further develop university cricket.
