Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

KUWAIT:

In their first game of this sea­son of the Kuwait Banks Club (KBC) League, Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Bank’s cricket team re­cently won their match against Gulf Bank’s team by 5 wick­ets.

Af­ter win­ning the toss, Gulf Bank elected to bat first, but KIB’s team kicked off the game with de­ter­mi­na­tion and skill. KIB’s bowlers ex­erted pres­sure from the very be­gin­ning and took wick­ets with reg­u­lar in­ter­vals, re­strict­ing the Gulf Bank team to only 117 runs. The KIB team then opened its in­nings with con­fi­dence and a fierce at­ti­tude, de­spite one of its play­ers get­ting in­jured and hav­ing to leave the game.

With this vic­tory, KIB scored a win in its first game of the 2016-2017 sea­son of Kuwait Banks Club (KBC) League, win­ning the match in 19th over with 5 wick­ets spare. Fur­ther­more, KIB’s Ali Merji was named “Man of the Match” for his im­pres­sive per­for­mance dur­ing the game. Con­grat­u­lat­ing the team on their win, the Bank’s Man­age­ment wished the Cricket team a suc­cess­ful sea­son with plenty of more vic­to­ries to fol­low.

KIB is a keen ad­vo­cate of en­hanc­ing in­ter­est in sports across the com­mu­nity in Kuwait, start­ing with its own staff. The Bank’s lead­ing so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram aims to raise aware­ness within the lo­cal com­mu­nity of the im­por­tance of sports and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in all its forms. The Bank firmly be­lieves that reg­u­lar ex­er­cise is an in­te­gral part of a mod­ern, healthy life­style, en­hanc­ing both phys­i­cal and men­tal well-be­ing.
