Sports form an integral part of the human culture. The only change is the sport which defines it. Sports can magically transform lives of everyone who come close to it - be it the players, coaches, parents or audience.

It is the world as a whole that benefits when its citizens are provided playgrounds, the necessary equipment and other facilities, and rewards outstanding sportsmen, so as to encourage others also to play sports.

We Global Sports Ventures believe in the tremendous power of sports in transforming countries, cities and local communities.

This is why our mission is to -

Change the world. One Sport at a time.

About Cricket

Cricket is a bat and ball game played between two teams of 11 players each on a Cricket field. At the center of the field is a 22 yard long pitch with a wicket (set of 3 wooden stumps) at each end. One team is designated the batting and the other side bowls (pitches) and fields. In the Twenty20 format, the batting team attempts to score as many runs as possible within 120 legal pitches. Whoever scores the most runs wins.
