The Indian Indoor Cricket Team - Masters participated in the Masters World Cup 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa. This was the first appearance at the Masters World Cup and the team won the Plate.

Now there is a Masters World Cup being held in Cape Town, South Africa from 20-26 October 2019. This is the 2nd time Team India will be participating in the Masters World Series and the first time in the Over 35 category.

Team India probables camp was held in Bangalore in the month of August-September after the All India Selections.
The Team India squad was announced on 14th September and are currently training in Bangalore at two Indoor Stadiums XLR8 Indoor Sports Arena and Play Factory.

We have had quite a few sponsors and the players are also doing their bit to manage the remaining funds required. Due to time constraints, we haven’t been able to garner the Accommodation Cost (which includes Breakfast and Dinner) of around Rs. 4 Lakhs.

Above costing is in South African Rands
81,163.60 Rands = Around Rs. 4 Lakhs

The team has been training hard and are on the verge of making it to the World Cup if the accommodation cost is raised. They are looking to better themselves from their last Masters World Cup performance. Reaching atleast Semi Finals is the immediate aim.

Please do support us in the hour of need by making your best possible contribution for us to participate in the Masters World Series 2019 and to make the country proud once again, like we have done all these years.

It's a great platform and a dream come true for all the Over 35 Mens selected. Every member of the team has an inspiring story which definitely demonstrates that its never too late even if you are Over 35 years to achieve the dream of representing the country at the highest level.

Our participation helps a great deal in promoting and developing Indoor Cricket throughout the country. The Indian Indoor Cricket Team requires your immediate assistance as the tour commences on the 16th of October. Kindly support the Indian Indoor Cricket Team - Masters .
