Bright Future for Cricket Club

Trying to turn a club into a competitive sport takes a special personality with dedication and a vision. That is the case for founder Qasim Aziz, and the rest of the players. The club is fairly new, but Aziz has a lot of plans for the club for the future.

Trying to turn a club into a competitive sport takes a special personality with dedication and a vision. That is the case for founder Qasim Aziz, and the rest of the players. The club is fairly new, but Aziz has a lot of plans for the club for the future.

“I started this club last year before the start of winter break I believe, so it’s been around for about a year and a half,” Qasim said.

Cricket has began to travel across the world. The sport began in England, but has also been spread to other countries such as India, Pakistan, and Australia.

“The matches are long and very competitive; with one team trying to rally up as many points before they either run out of balls (there’s a limited amount of times the batting team gets the ball thrown to them) or have exhausted all of their outs. There are some amazing plays that occur and the sport requires a great level of skill to excel,” Senior Varun Verma explains.

While the club right now is for students to come out and have fun with their friends, Aziz and the group would like to start playing competitively against other teams in the near future.

“I like to play it for fun, but I hope that in the future our cricket team evolves to the point where we are able to compete with other cricket teams, if they even exist, so we’ll see how that goes,” Aziz explains.

The team has had a large growth in players coming to the club to compete. They are always looking forward to new members and hope to keep getting bigger and bigger.

“It’s definitely gotten a lot bigger and it’s definitely gotten a lot more mature in the sense that like when people come to the cricket club they know what’s going on, and they know what they should be doing, and how basically how the sport’s play, like there is no one who comes and like doesn’t know how to play now, but I mean that’s still fine, like if someone comes and doesn’t know how to play, were still willing to take new members and to teach them how to play, because the sport that we want to include everyone in,” Qasim said.
