MichCA writes: “This list has been compiled based on (1) nominations sent by various Teams/Clubs and (2) Top-10 performers in 2010 season as shown in the ResultsVault. Please note that these Try-Outs are also open for all members of MichCA. All those Teams/Clubs that have not yet contributed to this list are hereby invited to send their top players to the TryOuts. These Try-Outs are mandatory and therefore we want all players to come prepared along with their cricket-gear (if available with them).
