This weekend sees the Detroit suburbs host one of the Midwest’s biggest and best tournaments, the Diversity Cup. Six teams, representing different parts of the cricketing world, and featuring some of the best local players and outstanding guest players (some with international experience) compete for a place in the final, which will take place at Bloomer Park, Rochester Hills, on Sunday at 2.30. MCA members and friends are warmly encouraged to attend Diversity Cup matches, especially the final, which will be accompanied by a trivia quiz and a children’s coaching session. There will also be a cricket stall at Bloomer Park on Sunday.
Also this weekend, a MichCA team will play in the Unity Cup in the Chicago suburbs. The tournament is being held to honor the memory of the late President of the Midwest Cricket Conference, Shekhs Aravind. MichCA plays its first group match, against Chicago Youth, on Saturday at 1.30, and its second group match on Sunday morning, both at Washington Park. The MichCA team is managed by MCA’s Information Director, and will include a number of “emerging players”. Anyone interested in being considered for selection should contact the MCA Information Director.
MCA will field a team in the National Collegiate Cricket Championship, organized by MichCA, taking place over the weekend of 24/25 September. MCA members and friends are invited to make themselves available for selection. Please let MCA Joint Head Coach Shyam Mayasandra know of your availability as soon as possible.
