CLUB UPDATES

        October 6 2019

        It has been an amazing summer season for the club. 

        At the beginning of the season, we had laid out 3 goals for out teams, getting the Indus Avengers to A-Division, the Indus Conquest to the B-Division and the Indus Prince            to the C-Division.  

        In the NCCA Summer League, the top 2 teams in their division get promoted to the next higher division and bottom 2 get relegated to the next lower division. 

        By the end of the regular season,
    • Indus Avengers was at #2 position in the B-Division. 
    • Indus Conquest was at #2 position in the C-Division.
    • Indus Prince was at #6 position in the D-Division.
    • Indus Dukes was at #10 position in the D-Division
        We have achieved 2 of the 3 goals that we had set out for at the beginning of the season, a truly incredible achievement for the club. Congratulations to all the players and         the team leads.

       March 20 2019

        Indus has registered 4 teams for the 2019 Summer and is looking forward to play some exciting Cricket.  Also, 3 of our supremely talented and promising youth members have participated in the recent USA U-19 selection trials and we wish them good luck for a future call up. 

        In the recently concluded 2018/19 Winter Season, Battlers has missed the play off qualification by a whisker due to bunch of rained affected games. 

        As for the 2018 summer season, Avengers and Prince have remained in their respective divisions and are looking forward to put up better efforts this year. Unfortunately Conquest which was in a rebuilding phase has been relegated to the C division but are looking to bounce back. 

        Wishing all of the Indus teams a lot of success in the 2019 Summer Season.  
       
       October 2 2017
       Indus Avengers has topped both Prestige Divisions combined and remained in #1 position for the play-off qualification. 

       Indus Conquest has won their last game  but barely missed the first place of the Prestige Division-2. They stay at 2nd place in Prestige Division-2 and qualified for play-off series with a combined division ranking of #3.

        #1 and #4 are in Group A of the play-off series.
        #2 and #3 are in Group B of the play-off series.

       So Avengers and Conquest are in different pools and do not have to play against each other. 

        Indus Battlers have won their Quarter Final game and qualified for the Semi-Final of Summer T-20 championship.

        Indus Prince  have won their league game comfortably and 13 year old Rahul Jariwala became the youngest player in the league to score a century. 

        CONGRATULATIONS to 3 of the 4 teams to qualify for PLAY OFFS, a great achievement for Indus Cricket club.

        Indus Avengers has clinched the 2017 NCCA Prestige-1 Division. Indus Conquest is currently in the 2nd place of the Prestige-2 Division with one more game to go. Both teams have qualified for the A division Promotion play-off series.  Indus Prince team consisting of mostly 12 year kids and a couple of seniors have done really well for playing in the adult league for the very first time and future looks very promising. Indus Battlers team missed the play-off cut for the Summer T20 by half a point in the NRR. Overall, a great showing for the club this summer and good luck to both Indus Avengers/Conquest for the play-offs series.

        Indus has been in the finals competitions in the past but the best showing was being a runner-up. That has changed this weekend - Indus has won it's very first championship this weekend. INDUS is the 2016 NCCA Summer T20 Summer League CHAMPION!!.
