American College Cricket President Lloyd Jodah said, “Congratulations to Ryerson and we hope to see them in Florida. It’s great to see our guys at York University get to the Finals -as 2010 American College Cricket Champions they have set the bar high for Canadian schools.
A superb performance too by Sheridan College – we look forward to seeing them in March.
McGill University has a unique position in sports history in the USA and Canada, having played key roles in the beginnings of football, basketball and hockey.
It has also had a long history of cricket on campus, so I am happy to have worked with Muhammed Tayab Zafar to begin McGill’s modern cricket team, and its gratifying to see it develop.”
