“Kolkata has a strong culture of gully cricket and allows me to connect with my friends on my weekly holidays. If the weather is fine for outdoor sports, we bond over cricket or football or else, we enjoy a competitive game of carrom instead.”

“Cricket is more than a sport; it is a way of life for us. From the time I remember, my friends and I would find ways and means to play in our locality and have fun. As we all have become very consumed in our professional lives, cricket is now a reason for all of us friends to catch up.”

“I developed an interest in the shooting ball sport through my PT class at school. I have represented my town at the District Level and became a champion in 2017. Subsequently, I represented District Sindhudurg and led the team for two years. However, while working, I ensure that I take the time out and practice the sport at night.”

Logeshwaran is a part of the TN Throwball Association and his team finished 3rd at the National Level Senior Throwball Tournament held in Howrah in January 2021. “I have been playing throwball since the age of 10.
