he ŠKODA Single Wicket Tournament 2019 - 2020 was a nationwide program for young cricketers in the U12 and U14 age category. Many youngsters all over India participated in this unique program and displayed their incredible talent and their love for cricket.

The Head Umpire was Prakash Rajjak and the commentator for the tournament was Venkat Iyer.

The U14 Grand Finale was held on 17th & 18th February 2020 at the Air India Sports Complex in Mumbai. All the youngsters expressed their love for cricket and how they wish to play for India in the iconic blue jersey.

The U14 winner is Ravi M. Singh, (Govt. Sr. Sec. School Dhauj) Faridabad from Gurgaon. He told us how much this victory means to him and with more dedication and hard work; he would love to play for the Indian cricket team.

I got a great experience coming to Mumbai and this was the first time I won such a big tournament. My parents and all my close friends are very proud that I won the tournament. I usually play with my friends and my coach is always supportive and guides me in the right direction.

I had a feeling I would lose as the bowler was very fast, but I pushed forward and made the runs. When I started balling, I found the batsmen's weakness and I played with a strategic plan. My confidence grew when I started hitting sixes and eventually, my fear of the fast bowler went away.

I purchased my first kit many years ago after I saw that my friend had one too. I practiced all day and eventually got better in cricket.

My mother always supported me but my father told me to focus on studies. After winning this tournament, my father said he will continue to support me and this made me happy.

At first, I couldn't afford the kit bag and after winning this tournament and getting the kit bag, this will motivate me to push forward and work harder.

With the winning prize money, I can pay for future match tournaments and play even more. I know with more hard work, I can play for India and wear the blue jersey. I'd like to thank ŠKODA for giving us this opportunity and a platform to showcase our skills.

The chief guest's for this tournament were Tarun Jha (Head of Marketing) Zac Hollis (Brand Director) and Rahul Bharadwaj (Marketing Manager) We’d like to congratulate our finalists and winners that were all present for this tournament.
