Florida: Future Home of Cricket?

After hosting a couple of Twenty20 games (New Zealand versus Sri Lanka) in the aftermath of the 2010 Twenty20 World Cup, Florida will be hosting a couple more: this time between West Indies and New Zealand. The two teams contain some of the most exciting and explosive hitters in world cricket—Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, and Brendon McCullum—so anyone looking for a fun day out should head to Lauderhill in Broward County in the sunshine state on June 30 or July 1. For more information, check out the (very busy) South Florida Cricket web page. Here are highlights of the first Twenty20 game in 2010.

  1. Is there any indication how the game was received by the locals? Or was it just ignored as a curiosity? I would be interested to know what the locals thought of it as it was two decent international teams playing not just local or franchise mediocre sides.
