We play cricket in Little Rock, AR. Our club name is LRCC (Little Rock Cricket Club). I was wondering if dreamcricket.com 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.

This is a good platform for one of the best talents in nj. NJcricket should advertise more to attract ppl. I am captaining Mercer Warriors and i have a full faith in my unit that we'll lead to semis. Best Regards to all team participating.

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
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.
