Later, KGP had it easy against Varanasi in the third place match, though the victory was only by 1 point The team and the coach had their task cut out before the meet since a fair number of top players from last year graduated.
Now, since more players are graduating, Aditya expects the coach to once again build a good team with new players and hopes are that there will be fierce competition to fill the void. While the performance was better than last year, the team believes it could have done a lot more.
Like other sports, it came to light that the girls face neglection in a lot of ways. A need was felt for an indoor court. The captain pointed out that just before Inter IIT, it rained quite often in Kharagpur making it impossible to play on a wet court. Riding high on confidence after the silver that they won in the previous tournament in Guwahati, the team had high hopes from Bombay and it showed. Kharagpur managed to win all their matches, including the group stages where they defeated Gandhinagar, Mandi and Bhubhaneshwar.
In the knockout rounds, Kharagpur defeated Guwahati in the quarters and Delhi in the semis, before going on to win against IIT-BHU in the finals and erasing all the bittersweet memories of the finals defeat to Kanpur the year before. This led to an entirely new crop of players being thrust to the forefront. That same group of players today were able to defy all expectations and have given KGPians something to be proud about. The fast pitches in IIT Bombay and the prevalence of high quality cricketing conditions allowed the team to assert their dominance over the less technically adept teams.
Football The football team from KGP put up a fantastic show at Bombay, managing to not concede a single field goal throughout the tournament and finishing third in the process. The team cruised comfortably through the group stages, and the quarter final to be matched with Roorkee in the semi-final.

He added that the future of the team looks pretty bright despite a few players graduating, with good number of talented junior and sophomore year players being part of the team. In the next group stage game, they lost to eventual champions IIT-Roorkee.
The team still managed to qualify for the quarter-finals where they faced 4-time champions IIT-Madras. The team entered this game without theservices of two key attacking players due to injuries they picked up during the group stage. Despite an extremely spirited effort, they ended up losing to IIT-Madras and were knocked out of the tournament.
But the more alarming issue is the absence of proper lighting facilities at the Jnan Gosh stadium which results in limited practice sessions on weekdays. The team had an undefeated run up until the semi final where they went up against Kanpur. After losing the first singles match of the semi final and requiring to win the rest two matches to proceed to final, the KGP doubles team took on Kanpur.
After winning one set and losing oneas the game went on to the third set which was fought over hard, the team eventually succumbed to Kanpur at The team defeated Guwahati in the third place match to grab bronze. The team was pretty pleased with the training facilities and conditions available at KGP for training, and benefitted from the presence of PTI allotted by TSG and the visiting coach.
Although three among four of the team members this year are graduating, he is confident that the team next year could go all the way to win the gold they missed out this year.
They reached the finals by overcoming a tough pool which had experienced players from Bombay, Delhi and Kanpur. The team was expected to face Madras in the finals, but the Madras team lost in semi finals which resulted in us facing Bombay in the finals. The strategy was to top in the group so that they could face an easy team in the semi finals.
On the upside, the second player Praniti Agarwal played tougher matches this time owing to injury to the top player Mallika Saharia, Captain.
Both the players took charge equally. This led to an increase in confidence in both players, changed the dynamics in our favour and resulted in the Gold. On the downside, a lot of light was shed on the lack of proper facilities for the Inter IIT players. Though they had a coach this year, he came in pretty late. The courts are also very hard as compared to standard synthetic courts.
The captain also pointed out the lack of interest and neglect that is portrayed when it comes to going an extra mile for the female players. She urges the Gymkhana to mandate a GC event for girls as well. The existing players need more discipline, a dedicated coach and there is a serious need for more participation from girls. The Captain also says that there is a need for a change in attitude and momentum when it comes to encouraging and training female players.
