The grand celebration that the entire cricket-loving community in Kuwait has intensely been anticipating – the inauguration of D-TACK, the TACK Entertainment City Cricket Ground, Doha – is less than two weeks away. It will be the ultimate start to the 2013-2014 cricket season. In collaboration with IndiansinKuwait.com (IIK), this TACK-IIK Four Nations T20 Festival being held on November 15, 2013 at D-TACK is going to be a full-day extravaganza packed with exciting prizes such as Samsung LED televisions and luxurious car customization from Ehsan Dana Co., food, traditional stalls, a live DJ, entertainment including quizzes, henna tattoos and patriotic face painting and of course, CRICKET!
TACK will be conducting a day-long T20 tournament amongst teams representing the four nations of Kuwait, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The teams were selected within the set domestic infrastructure of cricket in Kuwait, based on talent, discipline, performance and more. This will be the first time in Kuwait’s cricket history that a tournament will be played day & night. TACK has made this possible by recently enhancing the cricket ground with international standard floodlights that were especially shipped from Mumbai, India. Continuing from morning to night, the schedule of events is as follows:
7:00AM – TACK Kuwait XI vs. TACK India XI
10:30AM – TACK Pakistan XI vs. TACK Sri Lanka XI
2:00PM – 3rd & 4th Position Match
6:00PM – Finals
9:00PM – Presentation Ceremony
More than 1,000 guests are expected from both the local Kuwaiti and expatriate populations; over a hundred VIPs and dignitaries will grace the festival, including ambassadors from cricket-playing nations. Gulf Bank, McDonald’s, Huawei, Mada, Western Union, Enaya Insuranace, Al Hafiz, Schneider, Esselte, Mais Al-Ghanim, Ehsan Dana and MG7 are all confirmed partners of the event. The Patron-in-Chief of TACK Mr. Mahmoud Abdullah has confirmed a cash prize of USD 10,000 to be distributed amongst teams and players as per their final standings in the tournament.
With this event, TACK – IIK aims to gather all communities together and introduce families, friends, children and people of all ages back to cricket grounds, and enjoy an electric atmosphere never witnessed before in the history of Kuwait’s domestic cricket. With all the TACK teams’ support and prayers, the association hopes to achieve the above and deliver what it promised at the inception of TACK.
