If you want a definition of nirvana, try a beautiful sunny day in Florida, 70 degrees with a gentle breeze, on an immaculately maintained cricket field. Today was the start of the USACA National Championship at Lauderhill Cricket Stadium,and Brian Piccolo Park.
The 4 competing Teams were the Winners and Runners up from the Eastern and Western Conference Tournaments which took place this past summer. Today the New York Region played the South West Region on the turf wicket at Brian Piccolo Park, whilst the South East Region played the Central East Region at the gorgeous turf wicket of Lauderhill Cricket Stadium.The NY Region and the SW Region were widely considered the strongest Teams so anticipation of a thrilling match was high.
At Brian Piccolo
the NY Region opted to field and Kevin Darlington made it a good
choice right away by generating pace and dismissing Ricky Singh
(6) and Ravi Timbawala (3). George Adams then got rid of Nikhil
Iyer (0) and Aditya Thayagarajan (4) and SW was 26/4 in 13.4 overs.
The SE and CE Regions
got the privelege of playing at the Lauderhill Cricket Stadium and
celebrated with a thrilling game. Anand Tummala took the early wicket
of young Abhijit Joshi for one. Saminda Sirwardina (18) and Fahad
Babar (14) then put on 36 before Tummala struck again, dismissing
Sirwardina. Usman Shuja and Ashar Mehdi both made 24 and most of
the CE batsmen reached double-figures but their total of 165 all
out in 48.4 overs was a tough one to defend. They would need the
cooperation of the SE batsmen.
