Independence Day Cricket Cup 2021 organized by Latvian Cricket Federation

On August 15, 2021 in cooperation with three Latvian universities (RTU, Turība, ISMA) an Independence Day Cricket Cup 2021 was organized by Latvian Cricket Federation on Turība University ground to celebrate the 75th Independence Day of India.

India is known as one of the most powerful countries in the world but still, people’s love for their country does not keep them away from celebrating their Independence Day. Citizens celebrate the day by remembering the freedom fighters with full energy, dedication, and love for the country. Therefore, in dedication of the heroes, the national game – cricket – was organized to unite the international students from different universities and to celebrate the special occasion.

As the interest for international cricket games is highly increasing, in total four teams participated in the tournament, where RTU Cricket Club was represented by two teams – RTU and RTU Falcons. RTU Falcons team got a runner-up position.

We thank all the participants who took part in this cricket tournament and we encourage anyone who has a passion for cricket to join the next tournaments – both as players and as spectators to support our teams.
