    PLEASE LEAVE ANDY ALONE! KARAN GANESH IS A GOOD PLAYER. I THINK SOMETHING ABOUT HIS ATTIUDE IS KEEPING HIM BACK. HE SHOULD LOOK AT ZAMIN, THE FORMER CAPTAIN OF GANESH. ZAMIN SHOULD TEACH HIM A LITTLE MORE AS THE FORMER CAPTAIN OF THE USA CRICKET TEAM. GANESH IS OBSESSED ABOUT WINNING. CRICKET IS NOT ALL ABOUT WINNING.

    THE EACA, AT THEIR NEXT AGM, SHOULD DISCUSS PLAYERS ELEGIBLITY AT CLUB LEVEL. IN THIS WAY YOU WILL CREATE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING MORE ELIGIBLE PLAYERS TO THE PLAYING FIELD

    Hpersaud, clearly you feel u know who i am, do your self a favor and next time u see me at the cricket field, come and introduce your self, because anything i say on this very informative site, i am more than happy to say in on the cricket field, and if you know who i am, you know that’s the truth. before we start throwing out words, check the definitions of Ignorant and Arrogant. your comments, your first and latter, are both perfect example of what those two words mean. bashing another person, just so another person can get a little hyped up, tell me if that’s not PURE IGNORANT AND ARROGANT.

    If you are the same age as Andy, then u are more pathetic than i had initially thought you are. because instead of you trying to attain some sort of accomplishment in cricket for your self, you are fighting for someone else…. whose facts u dont even have straight. show me where u are getting you stats from for Mr. Ganesh, and i’ll show you where my stats are coming from.

    P.S dont forget to introduce your self to me at the cricket field.

  3. facts says:

    which scorebook is hpersaud lookin at? lol

  4. Facts says:

    Andy Mohammed is the most accomplished player in New York period! he has a bright future at age 21 or 22

  5. HPERSAUD says:

    Truth
    You are an idiot, you are as arrogant writing as you are on the cricket field. I am the same age as Andy, Karen has more runs and wickets over the years than Andy woudl ever have.

  6. Truth says:

    i agree with CRICKETER posts: is karan really eligible? he may be captaining his team but is he really, or is he making the calls and decisions his puppet masters want him to. you want to look at stats, look at stats for years now, stats for one season do not make a person’s reputation.

    secondly, isnt it time we all get off andy mohammed’s case, and start supporting the youngster? he’s been working his heart and soul out since he was barely 15 years old to be where he is today. and from then to now, he has gotten nothing but negative feedback from all you idiots out there. this alone should show you all, andy mohammed deserves to be on this squad, because all your hating has just elevated him. all the discouragement from people like hpersaud has given andy the courage and motivation to be his best. TAKE A HINT ALREADY, YOUR WORDS WILL NOT BRING HIM DOWN, HE HAS MORE SUPPORT AROUND HIM THAN YOU ALL WILL HAVE IN 5 LIFETIMES. find someone your own age to pick on, hpersaud.

  7. Facts says:

    outplayed the likes of ‘andy mohammed”? haha..that kid is used to critics so best believe he doesnt give a damn about what u say. He is the one of the better players and so is karan…stop trying to bring the youth game down. fool.

  8. gino says:

    How is it possible that Cameron Mirz is always chosen for all youth and now regular teams. This kid has failed in every possible way you can think of.
    I would like to know who is getting paid off by his father.Cricket is not for this kid, he should try something else.

  9. amandeep says:

  11. Riad says:

  12. Cricketer says:

    @ Hpersaud: Is Karan eligible to play for USA?

    @Asad: Englewood does not play in the Metropolitan League. What back to back double centuries are you talking about?

  13. Asad says:

    I played metropolitian league why Sumon Bari not included in this team? he is also best players in new york region the way his batting,filding nd bowling also he had back to back double century against us our team name is englewood. common ppl wake up.. you ppl loosing some good players

  14. HPERSAUD says:

    Why Karen Ganesh not included in this team, he is one of the better players in the NY Region and has captained his team, with his prolific scoring and wicket taking ability and has outplayed the likes of Andy Mohamed and others…check the stats and do not forget his fielding ability as well. Many in the area has turn a blind toward this player because of certain dislikes for the some of the Everest team members…sad, he can certaily help this team…..wake up people
