We have a few sessions together, played a few local tournaments and practice during weekends.

We think we share a good team bond on and off the field. We are not professionals but we have a good understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses and play as a team.
#4 Players in your team to watch out for and why?
Watch out for us as a TEAM. We do not have any individual favourites.
#5 How has the experience with IFT been?
We would prefer answering this question post the finals. But so far it’s been so good.
#6 History of your club/Team. How it all started? How has the journey been?
2 years back when we met each other as opponents, we learned that we live close by. We exchanged numbers. So each time one took a match the rest were called. The results were positive. Eventually, we formed a team and played various tournaments. Thanks to Tirthankar who has been a great motivation for the rest of us.
