Cricketgraph was the 1st to report the success story of WNS team selected to play in an International tournament like “Malaysia Super Sixes” and now another good news is WNS Mumbai who participated for the 1st time in an International Tournament finished at a overall 3rd place & also won Group A Winners Trophy which is definitely quite appreciation worthy considering that it was a local team of Mumbai participating against big teams in such a big tournament where players like Ajanta Mendis, Dushan Silva,Gunakeratne and a host of other international players from big leagues were their opponents. A success story which should definately make the people of Mumbai as well as India proud.
WNS team really did an amazing job in their first international outing & it was also good to see all players showing a great character by playing extra ordinary cricket. Players like Mandar Garude, Rahul Kirodian and Aditya Nikam were the stars in WNS success. Also credit must be given to the Captain Kiran Desai as well, as he really did an awesome job in leading the team & keeping the boys motivated. Captain Kiran used his bowlers and batsman as per their strengths & that’s what created a synergy in the team. SAG India who sponsored the team is also very happy with the team’s performance and promised WNS to take to Malaysia every year.
Also credit must go to SAG India who gave this wonderful opportunity to the players and took the responsibility of sponsoring them. They showed generosity & it was their whole-hearted involvement emotionally, physically and financially which also played a big role in WNS’s success in their very 1st outing.
It was also great to see Malaysian cricket club offering some of the WNS players to play for their Malaysian team while the WNS players expressed their desire to play for WNS only proving their love and loyalty towards the game.
