Cricket Tournament

The 1st Active Cricket Tournament in Mauritius

On Saturday 15th July 2013 at Riverland Sports Club, Tamarin, 12 teams competed in the very first Active Cricket tournament to be held in Mauritius.


In front of a large and enthusiastic crowd of supporters, Dolphins Cricket Club were crowned champions of the inaugural 6-a-side Active Cricket tournament. A few minutes earlier, The Wahoos - a team made up of 2 Mauritians, 2 South Africans, and 2 British kids - had been presented with their medals and trophies as winners of the junior competition.

Fun, Fast, and Lively

The format for the competition was devised so that the matches were fun, fast, lively and competitive, with everyone getting a chance to bat and bowl. Played on a tennis court to a background of music and cheering supporters, teams bat for 12 overs each which means that each match lasts about an hour – much shorter than a normal cricket match. Because a tennis ball is used, rather than a hard cricket ball, no awkward or expensive equipment is needed and the game is accessible to all. Thanks to sponsors - Lloyd Jones Construction - a bouncy castle, water side and DJ added to the entertainment and atmosphere of the day.

Dolphins were the worthy winners of the senior event. Having won both their group games against MEC and Apollo, they disposed of Richfields in the semis to set up a finale with MEC. The final was tightly fought until a hatrick of wickets from Emcar Player of the Day, Kenny Wyness, turned the match in the favour of the red shirted Dolphins who went on to win by 40 runs.

Cricket for All

The junior tournament had been hotly awaited for many weeks by the 40 kids who took part. Many had been training with their coach Tim Cartwright each week at Riverland and Flic en Flac in preparation for the event. The teams were a mix of Mauritans, expats, boys and girls, most of whom had only started playing cricket a few months before.

In a competitive and closely fought event, the team spirit, fair play, and friendly rivalry on show in the junior event was an example that many of the adults could learn from! Under floodlights, the final went right down to the last ball of the game, The Mantas narrowly losing out by 5 runs to The Wahoos. The Best Batsman award went to Corban Soll for his excellent 34 runs in the final, and the Best Bowler award was won by Charlie Pearce. The Emcar Player of the Day was Luke Pearson-Taylor who lead his team to victory with a consistent all round performance with bat and ball.

Summing up the day’s events, tournament organiser Tim Cartwright said, “This is how cricket should be: fun, fast and full of action. It is a real pleasure to see so many people enjoying cricket in Mauritius.”

Freediving

Kneeling on the sand, the clear water lapping around me, I take my last lung full of air, allow myself to gently fall forward and rest motionless, face down in the water.

My buddy’s hand lies gently on my back, keeping me from drifting but allowing the gentle motion of the water to caress me. As I relax my body from head to toe, my mind too relaxes and begins to drift away to places long forgotten. Childhood memories spring back to life: long sleepless summer evenings, midnight walks up the lane and back, searching for slumber. This is a beautiful place to be.

3 blissful minutes slip by before the contractions begin. First a gentle rolling in the stomach as my diaphragm begins to contract, but soon a more compelling beat. I could easily stop now, why carry on? What’s the point? This is the battle ground. My buddy squeezes my hand and I twitch my fingers into an OK in reply. The contractions become stronger but I am still relaxed, focussed only on the rhythm of my body and the voice of my buddy.

Suddenly time seems to be passing faster and faster, 5 minutes 30, 5.45, 6 minutes. Now I feel at home, where I belong, I could stay here for ever. Time to stop. Time to breathe.

I am OK.
