Be it the frequent tennis-ball stuff played in all parts of the campus or the more
serious season-ball stuff practiced by a select few, you could trust Cricket to provide
SOME crazy level of participation in this part of the world! With considerable efforts,
IIT Bombay has developed one of the lushest cricket ground in Mumbai, with no
disturbances unlike other Mumbai cricket grounds where you'll find 4-5 matches going
on in one ground.
Cricket is the most desired sport in the NSO programme, with around 200 people vying for the 20
odd available berths. The Inter Hostel Championship (held in the spring semester) sees the maximum
participation for any sport. The institute teams participate in the Inter IIT Sports Meet and also
regularly (read every weekend!) play friendly matches with local clubs and college teams.
