  1. now we have started the BPL, belgaum is so computerized but still we are not able to post the live score (atleast over by over), that we have to work on

  2. Congrats to UG! Hope the old cricket charm will return to UG ground.In the forties and fifties there was lot of competitive cricket played in Belgaum. There used to be two main tournaments. Saraf Shield for HS level boys & Latthe Shield open to all. In those days, when cities population was around forty thousand cricket lovers never fail to miss a match. Teams from Hubli (Railways) Kolhapur. Sangli, Kirloskarwadi, Sawantwadi used to participate in the tournaments every year. Vijay Hazare, Vivek Hazare and many Ranaji Players had played cricket at UG. Dr. Khot, Saraf, Dr.Suresh Kittur, Amanullha Kittur, Deshpnade Bros., Kabbe,Narse,Chougule, Mahagaonkar,Haldankar,Gunaji, and many more were great cricketer. They were all gentlemen cricketers. Hope this BPL will produce great cricketers. Wishing all the best to all the franchises and also to my colleague Sanjay Patilji, the sponsor.
