When 18-year-old undergrad Pranav Adnani came to Northeastern University in Fall 2011, he said, "There was no cricket club & despite a large  student population of Indians, Pakistanis, Sri Lankans, Bangladeshis etc, any student who wanted to play would usually join teams outside of school."
 
In fact, since 2009 various students at Northeastern have contacted American College Cricket President Lloyd Jodah, wishing to be a part of the national collegiate organization for cricket, but the students were not able to progress beyond their internal tapeball play.

However, once Pranav learned about American College Cricket and one of its founding member teams, Boston University Cricket Club, he was set on getting a competitive club going,
 
"Thus, I approached the director of club sports at Northeastern with a proposal to start a cricket club. The director Jerry Foster approved of the proposal and finally we were established on January 13, 2012."

In April 2012 the Northeastern Huskies played a series of matches against Boston University & a non-collegiate team, Boston Gymkhana Sports Club. Then during the Summer Break, despite most students being away from school, the Northeastern CC began an internal Summer League, and got over 200 registrants.
 
They have since been practising hard for the American College Cricket North East Championship set for October 2012 in New York City which 12 universities will participate in - the Semis & Finals to be shown on TV Asia.
