Winning lessons learnt from the cricket ground of MAHE Dubai.
Games and sports are as important as academics in shaping the lives of students. College play grounds teach as much as class rooms do, sometimes more. Sports teach life skills that can never be learnt in a classroom. Sportsman spirit, team play, assertiveness, determination, discipline, hard work, commitment, dedication, goal setting, and never-ever-giving-up are hard learnt lessons from cricket.
The MAHE Dubai Cricket Team- Nurtured to win
One of the most popular sports played in MAHE Dubai and in the UAE, is cricket. Every year, the MAHE Dubai cricket team goes through a rigorous selection where the right persons are trained to get on the field. Fed on a visual diet of international cricket from a very young age, these students have the passion and the determination to play in tough conditions with tough opponents. Some of them are trained as part of their school teams and have already played all types of cricket: one-day matches, test cricket and other formats. The current MAHE Dubai is a formidable team, nurtured to win.
This year, the MAHE Dubai cricket team have had a string of wins that has left us beaming with pride. Not just one, or two, but a whole of 10 wins, is a great score by any standards.
It goes to show that these are not ordinary young men, but men who are created to soar!
