Giles and Harris Shield Tournaments are one of the most prolific school level tournaments in Mumbai Cricket. Many players emerge out to be the next big thing from these tournaments and many go on to play for Mumbai and India. The likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Wasim Jaffer, Amol Muzumdar, Sarfaraz Khan and almost every Mumbai Ranji Player has played in these school tournaments.
To dominate in such highly competitive tournaments, the school teams need to practice alot and make a very strong team to reach at the top. To develop a strong team needs a good good coaching unit and Modern English School in their very first initial years itself have been growing leaps and bounds courtesy an excellent backup of coaching from Achievers Cricket Academy.
In Mumbai cricket, Inter school cricket tournaments have a big role in shaping young players and Achievers Cricket Academy has taken over the responsibility of developing the Modern English School (Chembur, Chhedanagar) cricket team (U-14 & U-16).
