Just in time for Elvis Presley's birthday anniversary the American College Cricket Newcomer of the Year was named : Murali Krishna Ankaraju of the University of Memphis, the hometown of the King !
 
Making his debut in American College Cricket, at the South West Regional, Murali smashed 131 off 65 balls with 6 fours & 10 sixes - a strike rate of 201.5. The highest score of the 5 centuries made this season in college cricket (10 since 2010).

Ankaraju also made 82 off 40 balls with 4 fours and 6 sixes - a strike rate of 205, and 20 and 3 wickets for 9 runs in the Finals vs the Arkansas State Red Wolves. 

Murali is pursuing his MS in Computer Science at the University of Memphis after doing his undergrad in Hyderabad. He said he has played"serious cricket since 12 and fielding was always my passion, later I developed my skills of batting & bowling.
 
It's an immense pleasure to be part of American College Cricket. To the passionate and crazy cricket lovers like us it a great pleasure to see cricket being a huge part of college sport. It provides us the great opportunity and platform to get recognized and prove ourselves against other young players.

I represented my high school in Hyderabad inter school tournaments and was selected for the Hyderabad Under 16 squad.I had denied that opportunity due to pressure from my family to concentrate more on my studies. Later I played for Osmania University. 

After undergrad,I played for Citibank in the Corporate League against some really good players and got to play at the two international venues Lal Bahadur Cricket Stadium and Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium and in grounds like Gymkhana and HCA where team Hyderabad plays its most of the Ranji Trophy matches. 
 
The American College Cricket Spring Break Championship will be a great opportunity (for the University of Memphis) to prove ourselves."

The 2013 American College Cricket Spring Break Championship will be March 13 -17. The Semis & Finals will be televised by TV Asia in the USA & Canada.
