Cricket tournament is getting bigger day by day. As we enter in ground yesterday and noticed the professional camera men with couple of cameras recording each match and showing a real time display on screen. They were also showing replays.
Yesterday it was the toughest match of that certain pool which was P.P.F (Property Point & Friends aka pakay pakay friends) v/s M.M.Marketing.
M.M.Marketing win the toss and elected to field first. P.P.F has already planned that if they win the toss they will choose to bat first. Well the match begins and break the records of the tournament. Maximum sixes in one match by one team record, which was earlier 11 sixes by Haroon Estate and now it is of P.P.F which hit 14 sixes in their turn yesterday. P.P.F has given an entertaining match to all of the audience. I believe if someone wants to get entertain with the match should watch P.P.F matches.
Well P.P.F give the target of 130 runs in 8 overs which M.M.Marketing didn’t make it and lose the game in very early stage. Adeeb rao of P.P.F has also got the wicket hat-trick. As a whole it was full of sixes and boundary matches but become one sided in very early stage.
Let’s see how this tournament goes further and what happens next as cricket is a game by chance, it is very unpredictable and can change the entire course instantly. Let us wish best of luck to all teams and hope for the best in upcoming matches.
Property dealers cricket tournament has begun today. First match has to take place at 4pm today between Enem Estate and Lucky Associates. It was the first day of the tournament so took some time to start the match. Tournament begins with the recitation of Quran and Naat. Then a little note by Mr. Khurram Rajpot and then it begins…
In first match Lucky Associates wins the toss and choose to bat first. In first over management has taken a batsman out of the ground (I believe they would be verifying whether he is a property dealer or not)
40 teams has signed up for the tournament. Management has made eight (8) pools with five teams in each pool. Every team has to play at least four matches i.e. one match with every team in his certain pool. Afterwards one team from each pool will come up to fight for the quarter final matches and so on.
Tomorrow first match at 4 pm is between Property Point Friends v/s M.M.Marketing
Property market of Bahria Town is little slow so every property dealer is practising for the cricket tournament. Property dealers are booking Sector D cricket ground on daily basis.
Normal rates of Sector D cricket ground (Aleem Dar Cricket Academy) is Rs. 7,000/- on weekdays and Rs. 12,000/- on weekends for full day. (I’ve heard this rates from a person working in cricket ground) well right now due to heavy demand of booking Bahria Town cricket ground management has raised their rates and booking grounds at like Rs. 8,000/- for two hours, yes just for two hours, which means one match only.
I’ve been to ground and it is really occupied and everyone is trying to get a booking. I believe this would happen until the Bahria Town property dealers tournament and then it will come back to it’s normal rates.
So until the tournament it is hard to get a booking for full day. Let’s see what happens next…
There are lots of property dealers in Bahria Town. Actually when any good society launches and go well in business then there is a big role of property dealers over there (check out the history of DHA). When there are property dealers they bring their investors to the society and further if society fulfil his promises then it grows as Bahria Town is growing.
