Srinagar: Indian Army along with local authorities organised the first-ever Machhal Women’s Cricket League.

“The girls from Machhal, Pushwari and Dudi villages participated with great zeal and enthusiasm. The matches were filled with a lot of emotions and the girls had given their best to win the matches for their village,” said PRO (Defence), Srinagar.

One of the participants, according to the PRO, said: “this is the first time we got an opportunity to play cricket. In Kashmir, girls don’t have the opportunity to participate in such games. I am very happy that the cricket tournament is organised for us for the first time. We had seen matches on television but to play cricket on a cricket field is altogether a different and special experience. Such tournaments should be conducted for the girls of Machhal Bowl in future also.”

“Girls from Machhal village were the winners of this sporting event. A large number of villagers came to witness these matches and were happy and expressed their gratitude for this new initiative by the Indian Army,” the PRO added.
