City Montessori School is organizing this tournament for the 5th consecutive time, since its inception in 2011 as the first ever global cricket event for schools around the world. With the success of organizing a combined TISSL team, comprising of the best cricketers from the 24 member schools, to participate at the annual Murali Cup tournaments held in Sri Lanka, the Executive Committee decided to organize this tour to encourage the talented cricketers to gain experience internationally. It is heartening to note the unity and strength of the team despite the students been from different schools.
