Second under 15's Indoor Cricket Tournament in Serbia - New Belgrade Cup
For this second event the interest levels was even higher so instead of four, as previously planned, there were five 7-a-side teams – three from the “school of cricket” in New Belgrade and two from “Stari Grad”.
The level of cricket was also much improved in comparison with the first tournament. The teams looked more compact and tactically aware, with bowling, running between the wickets and the fielding being the three main areas of improvement.
The winner of the tournament was, surprisingly, the second team of Mirijevo - Blokovi, who in the final beat their “more established” team-mates.
The best batter of the tournament was again Luka Milićević, whilst the best bowler was an extremely talented 13 year old, Milica Andrić of Centurion.
The tournament was honoured by the presence of eminent guests who presented the trophy and the medals: H.E. Arif Mahmood, the Ambassador of Pakistan; Ms. Melinda Rio, the First Secretary of the Australian Embassy in Belgrade; Dr. Dane Korica, representative of the Serbian Sports Association, and the headmaster of the “Jovan Sterija Popović” school, Mr. Dejan Pavković.
