The first ever ‘Embassy Cricket Carnival-2024’ rolls on 7 June, Friday at the Bashundhara Sporting Complex. The two-day long cricket bonanza is being organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in association with Gameplay Ltd. Foreign Secretary of Bangladesh Ambassador Masud Bin Momen inaugurated the event as the Chief Guest in presence of the officials from participating resident missions in Dhaka.
The tournament features 16 teams from various International Organizations and Foreign Embassies and High Commissions competing in a friendly cricket tournament. This exciting event serves as a platform for fostering camaraderie and building stronger relationships between the diplomatic community and international organizations in Bangladesh. While the T20 World cup is being held at the West Indies and the USA, this event celebrates the cricket craze in Dhaka.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs always supports sporting initiatives and appreciates organizations like GamePlay Ltd. for coming up with events like this”, said Foreign Secretary Momen. He mentioned that this event is being organized after four successful seasons of the ‘Embassy Football Fest’ patroned by the Foreign Ministry.
The opening ceremony was followed by group stage matches, leading to the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and the grand finale on the second day.
Team MoFA won all three group matches and qualified for the quarter finals as group champion.
Embassy Cricket Carnival is expected to generate enthusiasm for cricket while also promoting cultural exchange and sportsmanship in the diplomatic community and beyond.
