Cricket is not a sport associated with American University, but at Stanford the game is on the up, with improving facilities and two teams being run. While the participants mainly comes from the large expat community, interest is high.

"I’ve been here for 14 years, so I’ve seen a huge difference from last year and having the grounds back to the year I came in. Unless you were really passionate about the game, you wouldn’t even know we had a cricket club here at Stanford — I had to dig around to find out how to get involved — and now we’re right out in the open, so really it’s a huge difference."
