Cricket Anyone?

CRICKET, ANYONE?
Inaugural Mayor’s Cup kicks off two-day cricket tournament on Aug. 24 in Louisville
More than 15 teams to compete for $1,000 first prize
Mayor Greg Fischer hails new tournament

LOUISVILLE – Louisville is world-renowned for its baseball bat production, but bats of another kind will be hitting balls in the pitch when the inaugural Mayor’s Cup takes place Aug. 24-25. More than 15 teams are expected to compete for the cup and $1,000 in first prize money. The runner-up team will earn $500.

The tournament play will be round-robin elimination with the final four teams doing battle on Aug. 25. The Aug. 24 matches are scheduled to start at 9 a.m. at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park, followed by matches on Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. at Cox Park. Admission is free.

The debut cricket tournament is being staged by Indian Professional Council (IPC) and the Indian Student Association at the University of Louisville (ISA).

The idea for the cricket tournament emerged from a recent meeting between IPC leaders and Mayor Greg Fischer. Fischer welcomes the addition of a new and unique sports event in Louisville.

“Cricket is one of the world’s most popular sports – but it’s largely unknown here in Louisville,” said Fischer in a statement. “That’s about to change with this new tournament.”
