The opening ceremony to the final was highlighted by the sound of the Anjuman Islam band. Former India opener Wasim Jaffer graced the occasion as chief guest and recalled his early years in the game. "One had to perform at the school level to get noticed and that is why I shifted to Anjuman Islam school, which had a good cricket set-up. I grew up watching Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli and dreamt of becoming a cricketer someday. I remember getting a 400 in inter-school cricket which helped me get noticed in Mumbai cricket and that is how my journey began," Jaffer recalled. He also spoke about a high point in his inter-school cricket career. "In my first year of Harris Shield, we beat Shardashram (English) in the semi-finals and defeated Shardashram (Marathi) in the final. It was a great feeling,"
