 JTJB held the inaugural JTJB Cup on 22 August 2014.

The event kicked off with a 20/20 cricket match between Team JTJB and the Corporate XI. The match was played in a wonderfully friendly yet competitive spirit with the Corporate XI winning an exciting game in the last over.

The match was followed by a Networking session over cocktails and a seminar on insurance. Our guest speaker, Ms. Sarogenei Kolantha from Lockton, gave a talk on After-The-Event (ATE) litigation insurance and JTJB’s Managing Partner, Mr. Murali Pany gave a talk on the Duty of Disclosure in Insurance Contracts. It was an informative and insightful seminar with attendees participating actively during the Q&A session.

The event came to an end with an award ceremony where trophies were given to the best batsman, bowler and all rounder and the JTJB Cup presented to the Captain of the Corporate XI.

We would like to thank all the players and attendees for participating in this event. The feedback has been great and we will be making this an annual event.
