2007 NYC Mayor's Cup

The Inaugural New York City Mayor’s Cricket Cup got underway two weekends ago and the excitement is building up, as teams vie for the right to represent each of the five boroughs of New York City.

Three teams have already qualified to represent the Boroughs of Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island. Today’s scheduled matches will determine which teams will represent the remaining two Boroughs – Bronx and Brooklyn.

In Queens an XI named after Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall is waiting in the wings for its next opponent to be drawn, while Cosmos Sports Club has gone through to represent Staten Island and Pak-America Cricket Club to represent Manhattan.

Twenty-six teams started the tournament two weeks ago. That group has since been reduced to seven teams in the Twenty20 knockout tournament – a first in the City of New York and organized by the New York Cricket Region in conjunction with the New York City Parks and Recreation Departments of each of the five Boroughs.
According to Regional Director Jefroy Morrishaw, the Parks Department has been very supportive of the effort thus far, and he hopes that the collaborative effort will establish a long-tern relationship with the City’s Parks departments.

Brooklyn Borough Parks Commissioner, a member of the Cricket hall of Fame in Connecticut, has been very instrumental, along with several key personnel Parks officials in reaching out to lend a hand with the logistics involved in running the tournament, so far.
