The Lone Star State may have the most colleges playing for the Shiv Chanderpaul Trophy at the National Championship in Ft Lauderdale March 13 -17 on TV Asia -five !  


Texas A &
, a 2012 Club of the Year, have lost only one of the 12 matches
they've played in American College Cricket - and that was to eventual National
Champions York College in the Semis of the Nationals.


That was a game on TV
Asia, under the glare of 9 TV cameras and in the magnificent CBRP Cricket
Stadium - to some observers it seemed the pressure of the situation got to the
Aggies' strong team, and they are eager to go all the way this time. Anurag
Verma, their left-handed stroke player & a 2012 College Player of the Year
will be a delight to watch opening the batting with Hamza Mohammed. Contribute
to Texas A & M's effort


h, Club of the Year 2012, has its own cricket
field, and the ability to practice anytime weather allows. With efficient and
very pro active executive, members and alumni the Raiders are eyeing the
Chanderpaul Trophy, and visualizing it back in Lubbock to show to the people in
Buddy Holly's hometown.


There are 2 different
University of Houstons in Texas - the Cougars and the Hawks (until recently
called the Blue Herons). The Cougars have played in 2 Nationals and a Regional,
and have a lot of talent including USA player Ryan Corns, so they think its time
they became National Champions.


The University
of Houston Hawks
are led by the passionate Vivek Kotadia, and
accomplished a lot in their first year - over the past months they have been
practicing hard for Florida.

Contribute to UH
Hawk's efforts :


A completely new team,
the University of Texas - Arlington student Umer Musharref was
excited at the chance to play in the American College Cricket Spring Break
Championship, contacted Lloyd Jodah (American College Cricket President) and
together they started the process to begin a club - whilst Umer organized the
players and other details to play in the Nationals !  In a short time Umer secured sponsors - Samosa Hut & Grill, Currytos Restaurant & Dallas Premeire League ! (home of Hammer Cricket bats)'s Jason Mellet will be at
the American College Cricket Spring Break Championship, as Cricket Store Online became a sponsor at the Championship.
