American children love cricket, as expressed by students in one Omaha school.
New Inning Foundation has announced a $500
donation to USYCA for the purchase of additional American Cricket Champ
sets. This marks the third major gift from New Inning to USYCA in the
past year, and demonstrates the foundations' determination to support
promising youth cricket initiatives.
Ram Varadarajan of New Inning Foundation said, "I have always
believed that for Americans to enjoy cricket they must first have an
opportunity to play cricket in a fun setting so that they can experience
the joy of hitting the ball, scoring runs, fielding and taking a
wicket! Thanks to USYCA's cricket clinics and demos at schools across
the country, more and more kids are getting a chance to enjoy cricket.
At New Inning, we are happy to contribute to this wonderful initiative."
Above and beyond the direct donation, New Inning will match, dollar
for dollar up to $500, all direct donations given to USYCA from Saturday
May 7 through Friday, May 13.

Foundation," President Jamie Harrison said. "Ram and his organization
have been in our corner, and in youth cricket's corner, from the very
outset, and have been willing to give significant funding to make our
"With the New Inning matching campaign, a challenge has been set
before us, and I'm confident that USYCA's supporters will rise to the
occasion, as they always do."
