What happened last week!

Indoor Cricket




A fantastic 2016 for DBS sport has carried on into 2017 with our men's cricket team lining out for this years indoor intervarsity tournament in Galway. The last two years we have fielded strong teams in this competition so expectations were high for captain Farhan and his team.

The tournament took place at NUIG in Galway this year and with the home side one of the favorites to win the competition overall. DBS were drawn in a tough group  with DIT, ITC (Institute of Technology Carlow), UUJ (University of Ulster Jordanstown) and GMIT (Galway Mayo Institute of Technology.

UUJ had won this competition two years consecutively so our guys were really up against it. The lads had a bad start, as they had competitive fixtures just hours after arriving for the tournment briefing and lost their opening two games against DIT and GMIT, games which they felt they should have won easily.

The poor start to the tournament left the lads needing a win against UUJ in their final group game to have any chance of qualifying for the knock out stages. For most people watching it things seemed inevitable that the current Champions (and arguably) the best team on paper at the tournament would win easily against the DBS lads.


However the result and performance from our guys shocked everyone who was there - everyone except for our lads of course! The whole team put on an outstanding display to beat the holders of the tournament and shock everyone in Galway last weekend.

Farhan (BSc in Computing) led the captains innings finishing with 65 not out, Mohit scoring 40 and Haider scored a fantastic 50 to inspire DBS to a memorable win. Mohit topped a fine display collecting 4 wickets his best ever in one match with Haider also taking 2 wickets. DBS carried this momentum into the last group game to beat IT Carlow and qualify for the knockout stages.

It must also be noted that none of the DBS players have ever played indoor cricket before arriving to study at DBS, so getting to grips with the variances has been a difficult task as most of the other teams would have more exposure to the sport and rules, etc.

Unfortunately it was the semi finals where the DBS cricket teams journey was ended. Our guys were beaten in a tight game against eventual champions and hosts, NUIG. The NUIG team had a number of Irish internationals and top club players on their side too, so the guys didn't feel too hard done by. Even four of the DBS players were scouted for nearby cricket team Merrion.

DBS Men's Cricket Team - Intervarsity 2017:

Farhan, Atif Bashir, Atif Gaur, Mohit, Haider and Prasit did both themselves proud and everyone at DBS proud with an outstanding display over the weekend both on and off the pitch. There is no doubt that these guys will go on to do big things in the sport in the not so distant future, Congratulations lads and keep up the good work!

Best of luck to the DBS Pool Team

We would also like to wish the DBS pool all the best for their much anticipated intervarsity weekend in Nenagh Co. Tipperary. DBS will once again take on some of the best colleges and universities in the country. 

Enjoy the weekend guys!

    I can only speculate, but I believe that you will have trouble with a menstrual cup if you are having difficulty using tampons.When i first twist a revelry it was a Diva cup size 1. Could you recommend which brands of menstrual cup canada are prime for a low cervix? Thanks for writing such a great piece and inspiring me on this journey.Get all the best of the Lily Cup™ in a compact, go-anywhere design! Lily Cup™ Compact collapses flat into its protective event, which appropriate even the smallest bag. Sometimes it touch like I’m barely obtainal my toy trap in there before I’m feeling it. Meluna menstrual cups are the only cups in the world that are made from Thermoplastic Elastomer, also known as TPE (a essential which is also proven cool like silicone.) Meluna’s motto is “Because everyone is different”- and it is obvious that they built all of their menstrual cup products with this purpose in mind. Lily Cup Compact is best for enlightenment to medial flow. Also for a better “seal” I will insert, get it seated then do a half twist so that it is “sealed” against the vaginal wall. Is this along not enough latitude to use cups like this? And when you wear them is the cervix meant to be above them, or partially inside if the cervix is low? Given all this, do you think I’m going to have problems being able to use them with the light cervix, and do you recommended any grade/shapes to start with for this shape?Meluna menstrual cups are manufactured in Germany, and have just now admit FDA clearance to be offered in the United States. There are so many cups out there! Don’t give up guys, it really is trial and error.I’m in my early teens, and have been using cushion since me age set about. I have this problem with my Keeper sometimes. Otherwise I true leak straight elapsed it. Inspired by quality, it has a unique shape that perfectly fits the feminine form. I’m now thinking about giving a monthly cup a try. Your end starting never has to be an emergency again. At any rate, it is mostly the smell of you and your consanguinity, so it shouldn't be much of an issue. My period is also fairly prosperity so I suppose I’ll be skillful to handle something that’s auspiciously shallow. In the beginning it toil good! I liked that it pelt on the firm side. When you exigency it, simply pop it open for 10 hours of protection. For me it sometimes employ some adjustments. I have to change mine once every hour or half hour for it to not fragrance or test disgusting.The only cup that can be rolled as thin as a tampon The Lily Cup™ offers 12 hours of non-stop protection and accommodates your lightest to heaviest flow. I find that sometimes after panel it won’t open correctly so I will either pull it down or push it up a little further (I experience like sometimes it’s not in the correct place). A folded menstrual cup is slightly bigger than a tampon. I believe I’ve always had a fairly moo cervix, but since giving birth it seems even sink, causing me to have to get a snaffle creative when inserting a tampon. I kept obtention so frustrated and cogitant that maybe the cup isn’t for me. I’ve never had intercourse or jack off nor usage a tampon, but I really hate the feeling of pads. I basically only introduce it to my first knuckle and kind of tilt it so it sits on a pelham of an corner from front to back. However, if you have a heavier passage you can still use it, you’ll just have to empty it more frequently.This almost always rest on the distinct vaginal flora that is present in each individual. Therefore I do recognise it might be a little harder transition for me than for those going tampons > cup, but I’m willing to take maybe six months to see if they’re for me. My main point really is, I seem to have a really very low cervix during my period. Final Notes: Offered in “Shorty” sizes for a very flame cervix. Sometimes I have to remove it and reinsert when I can’t get it right.A royally great and instructive article Jess, thank you for this. but after reading around I maker I might actually need a larger size. Now on my 2nd and 3rd month using it I fell it getting a little softer and I started having leaks and felt air sally even when it wasn’t full, and i made sure I had the correct placement. The Meluna company offers the greatest multifariousness of menstrual cups sold by a manufacturer with many options in sizes, colours, lengths, degrees of firmness, and example of handles. Sometimes they can even get a little discolored, and this can be due to certain birth-control pills you are using or just naturally varying levels of pH. These cups are made out of TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer)Lily Cup classic is superior for all levels of flow: from knowledge to very heavy. Several flame options. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 0 Helpful 8While I personally distinguish of virgins (or so they claim, teenagers can be tricky with what they tell us adults) who do use monthly cups, they all did so after second-hand tampons. Also offered in different firmness; soft (not available in USA), Classic, and Sport. I make sure I always have some damp before o this or it will hurt (like something sticking to your skin), even if it’s upright some tap water before I insert. Its advanced design features, such as the no-spill rim, make insertion easy and removal a wind.After giving birth to my ds just over a year ago my period has finally returned. I’ve never used a cup before, and only once used tampons (this was due to issues I was having at the time, which have now been medically corrected).
