One of the features will be the hosting of the double wicket competition on the 7th and 8th of October, at the VOJN grounds.
Teams will be named after man-made or natural disasters e.g. Floods, Tsunamis, etc.
Also, during the course of the matches, teams and the spectators present, will be educated on the various types of disasters and how to mitigate their occurrence.
