    Women's Cricket Tournament on 22nd May 2016

    Winning and loosing aside, the HMM Women's cricket tournament was organized to promote sporting activities for women and kids. HMM would like to thank the NextGen Women's Cricket Team, Umpire Saurabh Malhotra, Coach Haribabu Chittibabu, Coach Sharad Annaldasula, Scorer Satish, Sanjay Agarwal, HMM 2016 Committee Members and India House for their efforts.

    HMM women's team won the final against a Tough local women's cricket team, NextGen. Practices for this final match were going on for the past two months and it was for the first time that both teams met each other in full forces on 5/22. The weather was cool and pitch was a bit moist due to the rain. Captain Megha Ozarker and Vice-Captain Shilpa Nagle decided to bowl first. Coach Sharad had everything planned out with HMM Team and set the bowling order. Shilpa bowled extremely well and only gave 9 runs in 3 overs and took two wickets. Janhavi, Megha, Mohini, Padma, Anuja, and Suchitra all bowled extremely well and gave only 45 runs in 12 overs.

    Vaishali Bhalerao and Janhavi Khurd went in as opening batsmen and scored 12 runs in 3 overs. Mohini Khurd and Shilpa Nagle went next to score 10 more runs. This included the first and only boundary hit by Mohini Khurd. Megha Ozarker and Padma Annaldasula finished off the innings by scoring some quick runs to win by 3 overs remaining and 8 wickets in hand.

    Congratulations to HMM Women's Cricket Team for this win.

    Congratulations to the winners of the kids 100m races. Congratulations Arnav Bhalerao, Rishi, Nandita Deo!
