With TV Asia, Coca Cola & Dish Network support, the American College Cricket “Home & Away’ games we began last semester continued this past week, the first week of school for most of you.
Playing “Home & Away” matches give you much more cricket, & makes the game much more visible on campuses – helping to bring in new interest, and broaden our fan-base.
At Harvard University, Boston U Terriers visited to play Harvard Crimson on the Jordan Field (Harvard’s field hockey field built in 2000). Equipped with lights, and a perfect surface, there was NO need for a matting. The surface played great, providing proper bounce, spin & movement was the assessment of the players as told to Lloyd Jodah, American College Cricket President.
Lloyd has been urging college cricket clubs to be flexible & strive to make use of existing sports facilities. Jordan Field, despite having small side boundaries, provides a great facility for cricket, even night cricket.
