Association with Gayle, who has won numerous accolades globally through his brilliant batting performance, is another feather in FCB’s cap.
India as a country is passionate about cricket and a large number of people have a dream to play it as a professional cricketer. There are many who may have the best of talent but are occupied with their daily lives, there are many youngsters waiting for a break to show their skill set and hone it at the same time. Bridging this ever unnoticed gap, FCB has ignited a spark in the hearts of cricket lovers out there by presentingthem with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience professional level cricket.
The idea behind Ferit Cricket Bash is to fish out amateur cricket talent above the age of 15 years from across the nation. FCB is a first-of-its-kind endeavour that will groom amateur players under the mentorship of international players like Muttiah Muralitharan, Chris Gayle, Zaheer Khan and Praveen Kumar. The players will get a chance to not only showcase their talent at national cricket stadiums while being cheered on by their family and friends but to also go live on television. Zaheer Khan, Suniel Shetty, Jasmeet Bhatia and Mitesh Sharma have strived hard to present this amazing league that will give an opportunity to everyone to make their dreams come true. An enormous number of registrations are testimony to the excitement that people have to be a part of this extravaganza.
Sharing his delight on the association with FCB, Chris Gayle said, “I am so excited to be a part of this elegant league which is one of its kind that can lead you to the dream life of a cricketer. This will be a life-changing opportunity, a chance to play in Australia and earning at the same time with the final gift of massive international exposure.”

Jasmeet Bhatia, the founder of FCB has said, “FCB is my greatest dream coming true; when I was a cricket player back in time, I played at the state level and I can totally connect with the situation that amateurs face. I wanted to gift this league to all the cricket aspirants out there so that everyone can at least be given a chance to showcase their skills.”
Mitesh Sharma, the co-founder of FCB has said, “The joy of being able to represent something in a sport is a cherished feeling, and when this can be amplified with being able to represent your state, it is something incomparable. We hope to discover as many passionate amateur cricketers as possible and provide them with a platform to live their dreams and meet their idols. Through FCB, we aim to give these players the experience of a lifetime, and memories they will cherish forever.”
Cricket in our nation is not just a sport, it is a religion here. Cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli are treated as gods and they are highly praised for their accomplishments in this sport. The spirit of playing cricket on each and every occasion can be seen in everyone. Be it any festival, workplace off-sites, weekend matches, housing society matches cricket finds its way to be a part of the celebration. To take this passion for cricket to the next level, Ferit Cricket Bash has come up with a unique league for non-professional cricketers of India. The idea is to give a platform to amateur cricketers to play under international players’ mentorship at national cricket stadiums.
