OCA Challenger Series 2013 - Co-sponsored by Modis
 
 
OCA CS 2013 week 2 highlights:

8th edition of OCA CS 2013 Champions - Kansas City Cricket Club (KCCC)
  Runner up - Lincoln Lions (LCC)

Man of the Match - Satish 33 and 3 wickets
Man of the Series - Alex 88 runs and 8 wickets
Best Batsman - Bala 107 runs and 3 wickets
Best Bowler - Ram prasad Cheruku (Rampi) with 9 wickets, and a game changing performance in Semi finals.

Lunch was powered by Kurry Express on prelims weekends and also Semi-finals, Finals weekend. Several of our volunteers chipped in with great home made food which received admiration from KC and Lincoln.

Here is what one of the KC folks said, "We should be ashamed that we do not provide such hospitality like OCA does, next time OCA visit to KC is on me"

OCA's 8th edition of Challenger Series 2013 was one of the peacefully done, non-controversial tournaments this year. Though the playoff weekend turned out to be humid and hot, but the passion and spirits were high with music, masti, family-filled environment.

We had visitors honking from the streets to acknowledge our games. Visitors from BCBS, Sogeti, and UNMC witnessing to know the game, which made it even more interesting.

This tournament could not have been done without the help of our volunteers. At a short notice, they chipped in with preparing great food, help us pack and unpack things, do some ground support. OCA couldn't have asked for more from their volunteers who are fortunately great members of OCA.

OCA would like to extend our thanks to all the volunteers and organizing committee to help arrange such a wonderful tournament. We take pride in saying, its an honor and privilege to be part of such a family. We thank the families, kids, and support staff, and players who contributed in every way possible.

Thanks to our sponsors Modis, Kurry Express, Namaste India, SmartStream Inc, Coca Cola.
