The Cal State Long Beach cricket team is new to American College Cricket, and played their first ACC games in the West Coast Championship at Woodley Fields. Under Captain Kiran Patil they performed well and look to be a fierce competitor in the 2011 nationals,the American College Cricket Spring Break Championship set for March at the “American College Cricket” Stadiium in Ft Lauderdale.
The team included a Doctor, named Healthy ! Dr Healthy Desai is actually the doctor for several of the Cal State Long Beach sports teams. As he is also doing a Fellowship at the University, he was also eligible to play (as a student) on the cricket team.
Unlike other sports the unique educational demographics of cricket demand unique eligibilty rules, hence undergrads, grads, Phd & post-doctoral students can play on their college teams.
