The Bombay Gymkhana will be organizing the inaugural Inter-Schools T20 Cricket Tournament at the Gymkhana’s cricket ground from January 7 to 25, 2020.

Eight school teams will be participating in this league-cum-knockout tournament. The 8 teams will be divided into two groups of four teams each and they will play on a round-robin league format, meaning, each team will be playing against all the remaining teams. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the semi-finals.

The participating schools include Cathedral & John Connon, Campion School, G.D. Somani, St. Mary’s, Gopi Birla School, Greenlawns, Aditya Birla and Dhirubhai Ambani.

As noted by the legendary cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar, maximum students should get a chance to play, this tournament is being organized with each team of 14 players wherein any 11 can bat or bowl; thereby all 14 players get to play. All other ICC rules will apply for this tournament. 

To give the young cricketers a unique experience, a few matches including the semi-finals and final will be played under floodlights. All matches will be played at the historic Bombay Gymkhana ground, where the first-ever Test match between India and England was played from December 15 to 18, 1933.
