At US Cricket Open 2011
Last weekend we traveled to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to attend the third edition of the US Cricket Open 2011 at Central Boward regional cricket stadium. We had a booth at the entrance and most of our cricket range was on display there, the T-20 games were played around several cricket grounds and it was quite an enjoyable sight to see Cricket flourishing in USA.
As an sponsor we provided the balls and scorer shirts to the administration and officials. All the umpires were wearing black shirts with CE and US Cricket Open logo and our website url printed on the back of the shirts. Tournament had decent media coverage and was televised live in USA.
We met the former president MAQ (Mohammad Afzal Qureshi) of Cricket Council USA who is now running for the president of USACA (United States of America Cricket Association), along with the current cricket council president Dr. Rahim Gul. The tournament was well organized and had some close games.
The tournament was won by the first time participant Trinidad & Tobago, congratulations to them. It was wonderful to be there and meet with the future stars of American Cricket.
