The Cricket club of Virginia Tech has their own cricket field. They graduated from half a pitch, to a full pitch in 2010, when they made their American College Cricket debut.
The Hokies also play in the local league, the Mid Atlantic Cricket League, and so have lots of practice playing together and will be a force to reckon with in the strong Group D.
2011 National Champion George Mason, 2010 Champion York University, # 2 seed Ohio State, Great Plains Champion Iowa State, # 12 ranked Texas Tech and Carnegie Mellon was a Finalist in the 2011 Mid West Regionals.
Anthony Sahadeo will accompany the team as Coach/Manager. Anthony is with the US Navy, and the Secretary of the Mid Atlantic Cricket League. He also plays for the Tide Water Cricket Club.
Swapnil Sheth, their Club President had this to say:
“We also are thankful to the Mid Atlantic Cricket League for providing financial support worth $ 200. We sincerely acknowledge the sponsorship worth $ 385 thanks to the efforts of Teju Patadia. CCVT also is grateful to VT Rec Sport ( Mr. Alan Glick and D.J Preston) for offering valuable support to the best of their capacity.
