The first one day ISC ‘Box Cricket Tournament’ was organized on 5 September 2014 at the Al Bustan grounds in Wadi Kabir. The matches started at 7.30 am.
 
Goan Wing registered two teams - Goan Zuari and Goan Mandovi. Our teams had mixed luck. While Zuari team provided entertaining cricket until the knockout stages the Mandovi team was unfortunate to get knocked out in the semifinals.
 
The day was very hot with temperatures crossing 40 degrees but nothing deterred the supporters including the family members, small children, friends and Goan Wing committee members from giving boisterous encouragement to the players on the pitch. It was also an opportunity where a good number of new members were registered to the wing.
 
Bhal Joshi, the sports secretary of Goan Wing did a marvelous job. At a very short notice he managed to bring together two teams even though it was the first time that the Goan Wing participated in any cricket tournament. Well accomplished Bhal and best wishes for all future endeavours.
 
On behalf of Goan Wing the convener, Mr. Anthony Goes, would like to express his gratitude to all those who contributed to make the day a success and an enjoyable experience for everyone.
