I am feeling proud to share with you all that I watched playing two Indian Hockey legends Dhanraj Pillay and Dilip Tirkey in CM Cup which is being organised by Karnataka Government as an inaugural tournament of newly laid turf at Shantinagar Hockey Stadium, Bangalore.
I watched the match between Air India (Dhanraj’s Team) and Odisha Stars (Dilip’s Team). The Air India which is full of stars like Dhanraj Pillay, Sandeep Michael, Len Aiyappa, Adrian D’Souza, etc. won the match with score of 3-0. The local star Sandeep Micheal scored a brace in 23rd and 29th minutes and Sameer Dad scored another goal in 31st minute of the match.
Local boy Amar Aiyamma stole the show with a hat-trick in Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited’s (BPCL) 3-1 win over Indian Railways in the other match of the day. Amar scored for BPCL in 17th (PC), 31st and 51st minute of the game. The lone goal for Indian Railways was scored by Deepak Ekka in 48th minute.
