    [QUOTE=smalishah84;3612974]You might want to go to St Lucia some time to watch a cricket match and relax on the beaches

    Btw your post here coincides with a very rare article on cricket in a major american publication

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/22/sp...t-culture.html[/QU
    Haven't read that article but thanks for the link. I decided to post here because I really hope there are others like myself in my area of the US that have cricket equipment. Would love to play around with others maybe at a baseball park or something. I was thinking about buying a cricket bat on ebay just for kicks to play around with on the weekends.

    I hear that there are a few cricket clubs in Florida since it does have a reasonable number of people from the caribbean
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Just find the ex-pats and you will find cricket. Here in IL for example there is both tennis ball cricket and red ball during the summer. Tennis ball is a good intro into concepts and playing.

    Tennis ball cricket? First I've heard of it...sounds perfect for me and my amateur sports playing ass. To be honest I don't really know any so called ex pats. Maybe I will try the internet to find them.

    It's more of an Indian thing. The ball is a heavy tennis ball and protective equipment is optional. I always wore a box/cup/hector protector but was viewed as weird for doing so. Pitch can be anything from rolled mud to concrete to AstroTurf. Rest of the rules are usually the same. Any local universities may have a cricket team or Indians who can help you find them.

    I live 35 minutes from the coastal beach area so I would also love to try out beach cricket but use a tennis ball so that no protection would be needed. I just found out that my area has a league for cricket(Houston). Since I have played baseball at a high school level maybe someone will let me give it a shot at a practice or something. Amazing what you can find with a little elbow grease and an internet connection.
