The cricket tournaments at PSU have been a regular event organized by the PSCC for the past 6 years and every time we have had a fun time at the fields. Last Spring 2010, all of us had an amazing time organizing and playing. Here is the link to some of the scores from Spring 2010 ( Nittany Warriors were crowned the champions and they can now boast of their 3rd title in 4 attempts. There are other interesting teams who came very close to the title – Cup Thookers (the runners-up), Hyderabad Nawabs and Extreme (the semi-finalists).

And whats more? Its not just cricket during the tournament. There will be a lot of music, commentary and thamasha at the ground. We hope everyone of you can participate and make this a grander success than ever before.

Welcome to PSCC

We take this opportunity to welcome all the new incoming graduate and undergraduate students to the Penn State Cricket Club (PSCC). Amidst your tough time with exams, assignments, projects, research et. al. through the semester, we are committed to providing you all with an opportunity to enjoy your time at PSU.

The PSCC is planning Fall leagues and the most toughly contested Fall tournament in the coming weeks. We look forward to your participation. Recently, the PSCC conducted the Summer Cricket League 2010 through May – June 2010. The Super Kings emerged as the champions in this tournament. Please browse through this website for more information and scorecards.

Super Kings: Summer Cricket League (SCL) Champions

June 30, 2010

From Ashwin Ramesh (Treasurer, Penn State Cricket Club):
With the unavailability of many players in most teams and a few pulling out cause of injury/internships/personal needs, the league HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY CALLED OFF.

We decidedĀ  to call upon SUPER KINGS as the winners of the tournament based on the ranking/pointing system. There may be arguments based on this, but we have decided upon this as a FINAL call without dwelling on this any further.

We (on behalf of PSCC and all others lending in their support/advice without which this could not have been possibly carried this far) would like to thank everyone for conducting this league. There have been ups and downs throughout the tournament, but we have pulled up a lot of players and interest through this league.

As a short term plan for the coming weeks in summer, we intend to have CRICKET BALL practice sessions/matches every Wednesday at Orchard Fields possibly from next week. With everyone’s email ID in store, we will be sending out mails notifying about time to meet etc. If we have enough players to play a match with two teams, that will be done deciding teams then and there, else just practice.

A request to the captains or stand in captains to forward the same information to their respective team members.

Thank You

Median and Scorecards Updated

June 18, 2010

Hi Folks,

Solemn requests from “Reshma” has really driven me to update the statistics with utmost urgency. I have also updated the scorecard for Game 13: Super Kings vs. Lions. I have added a new statistical parameter just to bring out the performances of the bowlers in terms of those Extra runs (Wides, No-balls). Please note that a leg-bye or a bye will not count as an extra run against the bowler. The first statistic is the “Balls per Extra” and the next is the “Runs per Extra”.

Subash has the most number of Balls / Extra (24.00) which means he bowls only one extra every 4 overs (he has bowled only 4 overs so far!). So you guys enjoy the weekend and I am looking forward to another close finish tomorrow between the Super Kings and the Warriors.
