I played in nirman school crikcet, from radient Int. School when I was 16. After that, for the next 2 years I played for many club-level cricket tournament; but none of them where national clubs.

I used to be opening bowler and opening batsmen, something that I was always proud of, and something that my team-mates used to hate a lot. :)

I'm playing here in Finland finnish cricket leage, although its not that much standard leage but at least there are some guys I met here from Pakistan, India, Australia, some of them are really professional and really tough palyers. Even some of them were under 17 camps for a while in national side. One Australian guy demands that he has been playing with Brett lee at the same club, this guy is really tall and ball really fast and bat like hammer, other guy demands as well that he faces couple of time McGraths as his opponents, McGrath did ball. Who knows whether these guys are bluffing.
I did play in 2nd division for a while in sylhet but after sometime playing left the country.

I am currently playing for the Washington Bengals Cricket Club (www.washingtonbengals.org) in the greater Washington DC area. There are two leagues in this area and we have two teams participate in two different leagues. In Bangladesh, I played in 1st Division for Kalabagan. I also went to national trial for the US team. Though I performed very good in the practice match, I fall out of favor because three selectors are from India, Pakistan and Carribean.

Which years did you play for Radiant boss? I used to be an opening batsman for them for 3 years. Played a couple of matches in Second division after that and that was pretty much it.

The league is NTCA (North Texas Cricket Association). Checkout www.ntcricket.com
We have 40 over league in 3 divisions with 8 to 10 teams in each div. depending on how many teams register every year.
Then we have 25 over round robin league tournament. This one is fun.
End of year we have ICC (International Cricket Cup ;) ). There are usually 8 team.
Bangladesh
India
Pakistan
Sri Lanka
West Indies
Australian
USA
Rest of the world

Plus there are always some mini tournaments here. There is a exciting Double Wicket tournament that takes place in 1 weekend under flood light. Its a 2 on 2, you can call it a mini version of 20/20.
