This is a slightly different group. Software Professionals who want to play Cricket (Atleast Semi!) Professionally.
I, Sumith Kumar Puri, am a Software Development Architect and located at Rajaji Nagar and Majestic.
If you have played any form of representative cricket - School, College, District, University, Zone, State or Nationals then you are the first choice.
This is for people who want to continue their passion and enthusiasm and now do have the time (and resources). Yes, you have to be a Software Professional (Product or IT Services Only). The team name is rightly Bangalore Software Engineers XI. We'll stick to this dual passion! We're biased.
Totally, we plan to have membership of only 20 members. These have to be committed players and we expect all to come for the weekend net practice. But, only about 3-4 days before a match, we will announce the 12 or 14. We plan to start off with weekend Net Practice. This will be followed by Friendly matches against Corporate / Club Sides. We will then see the feasibility of conducting regular Friday Evening, Saturday, Sunday Net Practice Sessions.
It will be great if we have equal representation in the diverse Bangalore Software Engineer community - from South India, North India, East India, West India. It will add to the passion and enthusiasm for a great team! Once we are 'seasoned' enough or 'good' enough :-) We will consider registering this as a Bangalore Club under the correct division in KSCA. We will appoint President, Treasurer, Secretary and Nets Manager; once we meet - Atleast 15 have to meet. Let's rock in 2016!
