India Trophy 2012
Home › Events › India Trophy 2012

Indian and Israel have several things in common. Cricket is one such interest that is common to both these countries. In order to harness the interest in cricket among the Israelis and Indian Community in Israel, the Indian Embassy in Israel, in co-operation with the Israel Cricket Association (ICA) and various other cricket clubs in Israel, is organising INDIA TROPHY, a Twenty-Twenty cricket tournament, for the second consecutive year.

The cricket tournament commenced on December 1, 2012, with the Indian Ambassador to Israel Mr. Jaideep Sarkar inaugurating the tournament along with Mr. Stanley Perlman, President of the ICA. Speaking at the inaugural event, the Indian Ambassador commented that such sporting events only improved the interaction among the people of the two countries and would help in better understanding of each other’s culture. Mr. Perlman, wishing all the participating teams in the India Trophy a success, said that ICA was grateful to the Indian Embassy for sponsoring the winter trophy, which would strengthen the partnership between the Embassy and ICA and would help ICA in promoting the interest for cricket in Israel. Mr. Naor Gudkar, an Indian born Israeli Jew, who is the CEO of ICA, hoped that the tournament would help to strengthen ties between Israel and India, as well as support the development of cricket in Israel through Youth Programmes and the building of better cricket grounds.

Twelve teams, composed mostly of Indians and Indian-origin Israelis, played matches in Ashdod, Dimona, Lod, Tel Aviv. Four teams - Young Ashdod, Lions Beersheva, Qiryat Gat and Super Lions Lod - topped their respective groups in the league phase and played in the semi-finals from which Super Lions Lod and Young Ashdod qualified for the finals. The finals of the tournament was held on January 26, 2013, in which defending champions Super Lions Lod won a close match against Young Ashdod. Qiryat Gat secured the third place. A presentation ceremony was held after the match, in which Indian Ambassador H.E. Jaideep Sarkar distributed the prizes to the teams and players. Mr. Ronen Wasker (8 wickets) from Lions Beersheva and Mr. Yaniv Rajpurkar (200 runs) from Young Ashdod won the trophies for best bowler and best batsman of the tournament awards respectively. Mr. Noar Gudker, CEO of ICA and Mr. Enoch Joseph, representative from Organisation of Indian Jews in Israel were also present during the ceremony.
