In India, Cricket is a Religion, it is worshipped just as much as we worship the Lord !! Growing up in India means living, eating and breathing this game that was brought to India by the Britishers during the colonial rule. In the old days the game was played as a 5 day test match and would get really boring at times. But with the inception of night cricket in Australia, the game took an exciting turn of fast paced innings and the match would finish in a day. I left India 25 years ago and kind of lost touch with this way of life but when I was approached by the San Ramon Cricket Association to sponsor the local league, I was only too excited. This is now my second year as the Title Sponsor of the SRCA league and every year I get a chance to meet the players and their families enjoying the game. It is also an opportunity to meet with the Mayor of San Ramon and other city officials who support the league. I use this time very effectively to talk to the Mayor about the local issues especially related to housing !!
Just today I was digging through some old pictures and videos from my first year sponsoring this tournament and I wanted to share it with you !!
