Sports is one of the important tenets of life at SIBM and every year in August DWANDVA gives them a chance to showcase their skills in a riveting face-off between MBA I and MBA II. This year the theme was based on "Fight Club" and the showdown began on 29th July to 1st August.
Day 1 of the showdown began with Pool. Both teams were high on energy and the matches began with the game swinging both ways but ended as a MBA II beat MBA I drawing first blood in the tournament.
Now the battle of the wits began and the players battled it out on the chess boards with the players trying to outwit the opponent applying strategies that would make Magnus Carlsen proud. MBA II outsmarted MBA I and taking the lead again to 2-0.
It was then followed by a game of Carrom where again MBA II was outmatched by MBA I taking the points tally to 2-1. The arena now shifted to the squash court where the MBAII dictated their supremacy by thrashing MBA I in all but 1 game and hence taking the points tally to 3-1.
No sports were played on day 2 due to incessant rains postponing the events to a later stage and in the process made the last day much more exciting and thrilling with so many sporting showdowns on offer.
Finally, the rainy patch was broken by swimming competition where MBA I reigned supreme by just beating MBA II finished the day on a high note leading the points table 3-2.
Day 4 began on a fervent pitch with both team's eager to win the trophy and to establish the dominance of their clan. The first event was Table Tennis and in true cowboy fashion tested the agility and reflexes of the players with the MBA II being victorious and leading the charge the women’s events and imposing their lead to 4-2 and the men’s team of MBA I showed their skills and won the table tennis match taking the score line to 4-3.
The face off now was at the badminton court with MBA I boys leading the charge and hitting exciting smashes and winning the event and bringing the score to 4-4. In badminton women the MBA I again defeated MBA II and taking lead of 5-4.
The focus now shifted to basketball. All the practice of Hoopster coming into play. MBA I girls were all over the court and managed to edge past MBA II girls beating them in a close match. But MBA II men retaliated and showed MBA I what experience really is and thrashed them easily. The score now almost neck to neck 6-5 in favor of MBA I.
The Tug of War was an event for MBA II to gain the trophy and it was an intensely fought battle with a lot of emotions all over the place but MBA I held their own to take the tally to 7-5. MBA I defeated their counterpart and defended their title as Champions of DWANDVA 2018.
