    We play cricket in Little Rock, AR. Our club name is LRCC (Little Rock Cricket Club). I was wondering if can held this kind of tournment in the southeast region. There is plenty of teams in the southeast. Currently we are playing Bikers 20/20 Tournment in Memphis, TN with 8 teams. Please let me know if you guys have anything going in the southeast region.

    It is great news here for NJ cricket lovers that we will finally see some stars come close to us after a while. I think that they should advertise this event as much as possible and hope the matches are fought tightly and very closely just like the T20 world cup final. They should try to get as many people as they can to come out and watch the games. This should be a very interesting tournament and I had a feeling that NJ cricket had to do something to make it popular than just a few cricket leagues, and this should set the stage for future cricket not just in New Jersey but the whole USA.
