MCA contributed three players to the Central East Region team that finished in third place in the national U-15 tournament in Newark, N.J. last week. Reports on each of CER’s four matches have already been posted to the MCA web site. Two MCA players were adjudged “man-of-the-match”; they can be seen receiving their awards on a video embedded in the DreamCricket report on the final day’s play and the awards ceremony.
The same two players were also included in DreamCricket’s unofficial Tournament XI: USA Cricket National U-15 Championship – Top performers and Tournament XI – USA Cricketer. The XI consists of three New Yorkers, three from North West (the first and second-place regions), two from Atlantic (which had two teams in the tournament), one from Southwest, and the two from CER. The three Northwest players are all from California Cricket Academy, which is the only club/academy to have contributed more players than (much smaller) MCA.
Coach Shyam’s photographs from the tournament can be seen on the MCA Flickr stream (see link on the right of the MCA home page). CER coach Sunil Kumar’s photographs can be found here.
