Thu, Nov 26, 2009 5:46 PM
Cricket Romania was formally launched in Bucharest on Wednesday 11th November 2009.
With goals to become Affiliate Members of the ICC in 3 years time there has already been a lot of local activity and interest generated.
For starters, Cricket Romania already has an ECB approved coach who decided to marry a Romanian girl and transfer to Bucharest, a reasonable smattering of expats who play cricket and a bunch of Romanians who having seen cricket on Eurosport (T20 world cup) are excited about learning the game.
At a junior level they have started introducing Kwik Cricket in the schools and should have national championships in 2 years time. A cricket ground is also being developed which in 5 years time should also house a Cricket Academy for the region.
