Captain of the NUS MBA Cricket Team Ankur Bansal shares the highlights of the Cricket tournament against NUS School of Science and NTU. 

Sports fever just can’t subside in NUS Business School. Sports have always proved to be a stress-buster in this increasingly monotonous academic environment. We just concluded a Cricket Tournament which was not only exhilarating, but also tested the skills of the players.

NUS MBA organized and sponsored a Cricket tournament with three teams participating in the same. The three teams were from NUS MBA, NUS School of Science and NTU. The tournament kicked off with the first match being between the two NUS teams. The excitement was palpable as each one of us was determined to do their best on the field.
