Cricket pioneered the use of statistics in sports as far back as the 1700s. Henry Chadwick, a cricketer introduced cricket stats recording to baseball in the 1800s & became known as the ‘father of baseball) & a Baseball Hall of Famer.
In late 2011 Crichq was introduced to Lloyd Jodah, American College Cricket President, who was searching for an online scoring option for the record number of matches in the National Championship (47 in 2010 & 67 in 2011). Lloyd had Rahul Potghun (Auburn) check it out, and adopted it, partially for the 2012 American College Cricket Nationals & Regionals, & 100% for 2013.
American College Cricket then pioneered the promotion & use of this revolutionary software across USA & Canada. In April 2012 American College Cricket & Crichq became cricket technology partners.
