#IGCL visits multiple villages across India in order to infuse a sense of positivity and provide the rural youth with a direction in life through our novel initiative, with the slogan: "Balla ghumayenge, kismat banayenge, एक छक्का 500 रुपये ." Under this initiative, we select 50-100 rural youth to team up and compete against each other in the game of Cricket. The best performing 200 youth team across all villages will proceed to the city level competition to highlight better performing players. The best ones are brought to a higher platform and also sponsored take them forward to new heights in the sport. The purpose of IGCL is to bring the rural India to the modernity of the cities and help them get involved in productive toils instead of falling prey to the ills of addiction and unemployment. This event is poised to catalyze a positive change in the society - although at a meagre level, yet allowing the marginalized sects of our society to break free and explore the world of possibilities. On one hand the rural youth gets a platform to showcase their cricketing talent, on the other their passion for the game was getting identified and would take them forward to new heights in the sport.
IGCL BEGAN WITH THE IDEATION OF A STAGE THAT WOULD BRING TOGETHER AND ENHANCE THE TALENT OF YOUNG RURAL POPULATION!
The man behind the league, Anurag Bhadoria, believes that his main aim is to unearth talents from the dusty and muddied tracks of rural India. "The purpose of the league is to see that any Sachin Tendulkar or Mahendra Dhoni is not lost due to lack of opportunities."
Indian Gramin Cricket League not only helped in identifying new cricket talent from grassroots of India,
But also promoted feelings of brotherhood, respect and peace of mind amongst Uttar Pradesh people. While the response to this tournament was thrilling, it also engaged the whole state in a compelling format.
