Cleveland State University honored their Vikings Cricket Club as Club of the Month, for their particpation in the 2011 American College Cricket Championship. The CSU Recreational Center Newsletter said:
This month we would like to recognize the Cricket Club. The Cleveland State Vikings Cricket Club was reactivated in 2009 when President Jagjitan Gill took over (and got in touch with Lloyd Jodah,founder and President of American College Cricket). The Club has been going strong ever since.
The Club recently got back from the American College Cricket National Championship in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. 12 members attended the tournament, where the team feels they played well. But like any team Sadiq Khan feels “the more we play with each other, the better we are going to get.”
The cricket club knows that particpation in a tournament of this magnitude will definitely boost club exposure and particpation.Not only did they get to compete and have fun, but “during this trip we got to meet some really good cricketers as well as coaches,” Khan said.
The club hosted their first tennis ball tournament last summer and are looking to execute a bigger and better one this summer.
Also in the future for the cricket club is the upcoming American College Cricket Midwest Championship in September.
Congrats to Jagjitan Gill, Sadiq Khan, Ishaan Bhatt and the rest of the cricket club for being recognized as this month’s Club of the Month !
