Mid May saw a welcome return to cricket matches for the Brigade of Gurkhas cricket team (BGCC). They took part in the Inter Corps Tournament 20 competition.
It was the first participation at this level since the establishment of the BGCC in 2018. Although fortune was not on the team’s side it turned out to be a fantastic experience and opportunity for the BGCC players to play with against with other Corps team, with the players looking to be selected by their respective Corps and even the Army team coaches and selectors. The BGCC team was led by Staff Sergeant Ramesh Gurung for this match consisting of players from across the Brigade units. The weather had its part to play and added with COVID-19 restrictions the team were held back, but team and players felt and now know they will be better prepared for next year’s Inter Corps Tournament competition.
