Saiprasad Bhosle ‘17
Hometown: Mumbai, India
Major: Management Information Systems
Future Plans: Play cricket/find a full-time job
Growing up in India, Saiprasad Bhosle never expected that he would play more cricket in the United States than he did at home. However, as the captain of the University of Illinois Springfield Cricket Club intramural sports team he’s getting that chance. He recently led the team to its first national victory in the American College Cricket Tournament. It’s the first time any UIS intramural sports team has ever won a game during a national competition. As an intramural supervisor for UIS Campus Recreation, Bhosle is also responsible for planning home cricket matches with other Midwestern colleges and universities. Following graduation from UIS, Bhosle plans to continue to play cricket for clubs and seek full-time job opportunities in United States.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
