The California Cricket Academy will run the USA’s first inter-school championship among Cupertino middle schools starting on February 27. In the first round there will be three middle schools but the organisers expect more middle and elementary schools to join the program in coming months. CCA launched school program last year by distributing cricket instruction material and cricket kits to about eight schools in Cupertino and neighboring schools. CCA graduates took up the challenge to start clubs in their respective schools and as a result now they are ready to start school championship program. The first phase of the program will be with hard tennis balls, but regular cricket equipment will be introduced in the second phase.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
