Cricket in India is a national sport and closely followed by a billion followers.
Elf as part of their CSR campaign had a tie up with a renowned Indian Captain Mr Dilip Vengsarkar's cricket academy which was named as the Elf Vengsarkar Cricket Academy. A few players over the years have emerged from this Academy who have gone on to don State and India colors. As a matter of fact, the partnership is still flowering!!
I had the opportunity to join Elf for my cricketing prowess those days. Those were fun days when we had matches with the Academy team where we tested our skills against the young Academy players in the making!
Elf was a leading cricket side and won the prestigious TIMES SHIELD A DIVISION title in the year 1998-99. At one point in time, Elf had at least 6-7 India players in their ranks!!
