25 January, 2023, Kolkata: The JITO Premier League in Kolkata is a much-awaited event for the Jain community members.
This year the Premier League is taking place from the 26th-29th January at the grounds on Bangur Avenue, D Block. This is the Fourth Season to the JITO Premier League and is probably one of the biggest day-night cricket tournaments happening in Kolkata.
There are 180 players playing in the tournament representing 14 Teams. The selection process was extremely exciting and took about 2 months with 1 mega option day with the bidding reaching high levels of anticipation amongst everyone. The JITO Premier League Auction bidding took place on the 5th of January at the Hyatt Regency Kolkata.
JITO Chairman, Kolkata Chapter, Bhaven Kamdar said: “This is a great way for the Jain Business community members to come together and compete against each other in cricket. It builds not only team spirit and camaraderie but also a competitive edge to the games”.
The men’s team has 26 matches which will be live cast on YouTube for all 4 days.
Being part of the business community there are obviously great incentives for the Man of the Match and Man of the Series.
Rohit Surana, JITO Chief Secretary, Kolkata Chapter noted that “JITO as an organization always promotes women in all spheres and here too there will also be 4 Women’s Teams with 44 women participating in this tournament”.
