In the 3rd TV game in American and Canadian history, Toronto''s Ryerson University took on the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (know as NYU-Polytechnic).

The two teams faced off on TV Asia on Sat Nov 12, in the Finals of the American College Cricket Northeast Championship, and an opportunity to zoom up the rankings, maybe even to number 1 !



NYU-Polytechnic atttack boast America''s fastest, Adrian Gordon but it was clear that Ryerson held the advantage in the bowling dept.

Batting first the NYU-Polytechnic batsmen relied on extras to move the score along, and at the end of the Power Play they had just 17 runs for 2 wickets.

However hard hitting strokeplayer Adrian Gordon had just come to the wicket, and he delighted with some glorious cuts and hooks, getting 4 twos on the slow outfield, before stroking 3 fours.

In March Gordon smashed 145* in the national championship, so the Ryerson team had to be getting worried when Gordon came back too casually for a 2nd run, and was run out !

Gordon was out at 56, and only Somesh Batra, 12 reached double figures as the NYU-Poly team crumbled.

Once again Harsh Desai took crucial wickets, 2 for 17 off 3 overs. Hasan Mirza, the Ryerson captain, 2 for 15 in 3 overs and Azad Zaidi 3 for 6 in 1.3 overs.

Hasan Zaidi then opened the batting with Farhan Khan,10 and played a solid innings before opening up,striking 2 sixes and 1 four in 30*. Coming at 3, Rahat smashed 4 sixes in his 33* as the two put on an unbeaten partnership of 68 runs to win the game and the TV Asia Trophy for Ryerson !

The MVP was Harsh Desai, who once again took crucial wickets to swing the game Ryerson's way.

Ryerson won in such a convincing manner that they have immediately vaulted themselves to be among the favorites to win the Chanderpaul Trophy at next March's American College Cricket Spring Break Championship.

Play by play commentary for the game was done by Lloyd Jodah, as TV Asia and American College Cricket teamed up to bring the game out of the shadows, and into people''''s living rooms in the United States and Canada.
