Dwandva 2017

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 “Wild West” and the showdown began on 1st August to 3rd August.


Day 1 of the showdown began with Carrom. Both teams were high on energy and the matches began with the game swinging both ways but ended as a one-sided affair with the MBA II comprehensively drubbing MBA I drawing first blood in the tournament. It was then followed by a game of Pool where MBA II was outmatched by MBA I taking the points tally to one all.


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 2-1.


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.


This was followed by a game of badminton where again MBA II reigned supreme by thrashing MBA I in a comprehensive manner and finished a day packed with action on a high note leading the points table 4-1.



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.


Day 3 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 men’s events and imposing their lead to 5-1 and the women’s team of MBA I showed their skills and won the table tennis match taking the score line to 5-2.


The face off now was at the swimming pool with MBA I girls leading the charge and making for a exciting race full of ups and downs with the MBA I recovering brilliantly from a slow start. But the MBA II boys pulled back winning their race and levelling the points offered in swimming. The points tally now showed 6-3. In badminton women the MBA II convincingly defeated MBA I and taking an unassailable lead thrashing the hopes of MBA I of being the dominant clan.


The Tug of War was an event for MBA I to regain the lost pride and they held true to its strength winning both the matches convincingly taking their tally to a respectable score of 7-5. MBA II defeated their counterpart and defended their title as Champions of DWANDVA 2017.
