Slogover, where Cricket meets memories. This Slogover website is an institution that celebrates and commemorates the heartbeat of the nation “Our Cricket”. It is committed to guide, encourage and inspire the future of Indian cricket.

We commissioned a very innovative “#Slogover #DidYouKnowCard” on this website. Here we present the important and interesting information about cricket in a very informative and sharable way.

Apart from the health benefits, cricket can teach many values to your child including how hard work and dedication can pay rich dividends.

Each game of cricket has a vital lesson to learn. From Sachin Tendulkar single-handedly carrying India, even as ‘Desert Strom’ raged on, into the finals of the 1998 Coca-Cola cup to the defining images of Brian Lara becoming the first man to score 400 runs in a single test, the game teaches how hard work and a lot of effort will eventually pay off. 

So enjoy the journey of Cricket Memories and share the #Slogover #DidYouKnowCards with your friends.
