There was great fielding,some magnificent bowling spells and lots of talented batting, but in the end we had to narrow it down to 5 nominees for the BIG League USA Award being given to the 2011 American College Cricket Spring Break Championship MVP .
The Championship MVP will leave for India on May 16th in time to see the Rajasthan Royals play Sachin Tendulkar and the Mumbai Indians, and spend 7-10 days. American College Cricket CEO Nino DiLoreto will travel with the MVP and use his Emmy Award winning experience to produce a documentary of the trip.
“The MVP will get the opportunity of being amongst cricket Icons such as Captain of the Royals Shane Warne, Shane Watson, India’s Batting Wall Rahul Dravid, Ross Taylor, Paul Collingwood and hostile fast bowler Shaun Tait and play in the nets with the Royal Rajasthan players, watch their matches live, and meet the co-owner Bollywood Celebrity, Mrs. Shilp Shetty Kundra.” said BIG League CEO Salman Ahmed.
They are alphabetically (by last name):
Adil Bhatti (Montgomery College)
Adrian Gordon (NYU-Polytechnic)
Ricky Nayyar (University of Florida)

Games against the “Special Guest” team Presentation College are not being considered.
