Seven matches took place on the 3rd of June, while the remaining round games and knockout fixtures were played on Sunday, the 4th of June. Despite the heat in the day games, players were enthusiastic about the RPL and showcased glimpses of their talent, with the bat or ball, on the field.
Support From Female Colleagues
While the male members of the Ropstam family faced off in epic battles on the field, their female compatriots cheered from the stands. The female employees of Ropstam turned up in good numbers and made their presence felt. Their vivacious support and deafening slogans epitomized the jubilant spirit of the tournament. The solid backing of the “Women of Ropstam” for their respective teams while wearing team jerseys became the highlight of the event.
A hungry sportsman is like crickets without the chirp – feed them, and they will play like champions. Realizing that the matches would finish at midnight, the Ropstam management provided dinner to re-energize the players. The attendees loved the delicious meal and acknowledged the generosity of the management.
