In the USA, inexplicably people of cricket background have mostly left cricket out of their social & cultural activities.


But TV Asia & American College Cricket is changing that. For the 2nd year TV Asia heavily promoted American College Cricket on their float in the 32nd Annual India Day Parade Sunday, as Madison Ave New York City rocked to the sounds of Indian music !


Chief Guest of the India Day Parade this year was legendary Indian bowler Anil Kumble, and American College Cricket players were ecstatic to meet the Indian cricket great.


Thousands lined Madison Ave, NYC to watch Anil Kumble and Parade Grand Marshall Saif Ali Khan, Bollywood star & son of the late Nawab of Pataudi who captained India in the 1960s.


American College Cricket President Lloyd Jodah met Kumble and rode on both the TV Asia & Espn float with American College Cricket players. LIU-Brooklyn Club President Sandeep Devarshetty, Emry-Riddle's Jay Palicha and other American College Cricketers rode with their idol Kumble and the ICC T20 World Cup Trophy - certainly one of the highlights of their lives.


Noticing the gAmerican College Cricketh written on the shirt Kumble asked the students about it, and was happily surprised to find out that cricket was being played in American & Canadian Universities. The students then donned Espn shirts to ride with Kumble.


The Parade celebrating India's Independence was televised by TV Asia -the voice & mirror of the South Asian Community in the USA.
