The table-tennis players had to even invest in their own rubbers and ply for the tournament, even though they were promised that the entire amount would be refunded. The question that needs to be asked is how the allocated funds are being used. Looking back at Shaurya, one can easily see that any team had to play a maximum of three-four matches to win the tournament, while in Inter-IIT it takes a minimum of six.
Another change that most current captains would like to see is the start of practice from the Spring semester itself. That coupled with some sort of a Holiday Inter-IIT camp during the Durga Puja break would serve not only to sharpen the acumen of our athletes, but would also increase the bonding of the contingent as a whole, something which was lacking in Roorkee.
Motivation of players It is no secret that an Inter-IIT certificate in your curriculum vitae significantly increases chances of a Day 1 placement. And nobody really has an issue with that. Another reason why some players may not be strongly motivated is the complete lack of incentives to perform well, apart from the love for the sport.
Kislaya Dubey, who has the distinction of representing Kharagpur in both Water Polo and badminton, feels the buzz in the campus is only about getting into the team and not what happens afterwards. He also points in the direction of dedicated efforts by sports councils of other IITs who maintain performance record of each and every Inter-IIT player and regularly publicize them. There is much prestige involved when it comes to Inter-IIT. It is hence only natural that the host IIT tries to maximize its chances of securing as high a position as possible in the General Championship.
However some of the practices adopted by Roorkee were unethical at best, and downright ugly at worst. For starters, Kharagpur was given practice slots at ungodly hours in sports where it was in the same group as Roorkee.
Case in point would be table-tennis, where our players were supposed to practice at 6 am at 5 degrees Celsius. In badminton, the Roorkee players in their quarter-final match against Kharagpur girls could choose just about whenever to stop-start the match.
But our football players probably had the worst deal of them all. Not only did they have to fight the cold and clammy conditions but also had to face some absurd refereeing decisions. Whether this proves to be a blessing in disguise remains to be seen, although captain Kamal Singh remains confident. Bhavnish Kohli, who played a vital role in Shaurya, will again have to shoulder a major chunk of responsibility along with Anirudh.
The presence of several all-rounders also adds to the balance of the team. Kharagpur is in the same group as Rajasthan, Hyderabad and Gandhinagar where only Gandhinagar should prove to be of any significant challenge.

From then on, however, the going gets really tough with Delhi and Madras looming in the quarter-finals. The scenario this time seems to be very different.
The whole squad is new, and what they lack in experience is more than made up by their level of motivation and commitment to the sport. Unlike last year where the team had zero match practice, the players have been playing a lot of matches.
Open-IIT Squash was conducted for the first time and the competition level was good. Also, they have been playing mock games regularly and their cumulative performance will be the basis for selection.
A friendly tournament in December is also on the list to ensure quality pre-event match practice. Hurdles notwithstanding, the team has the potential to be the runners-up in the sports meet, being second only to IIT Roorkee and take the sport to a whole new level on campus, believes Anant Agarwal, a senior member of the team. The football team has promised a lot for several years now, and failed to deliver.
