WHCC - Runners-up at Philadelphia International Cricket Festival

West Haven Cricket Club participated in prestigious Philadelphia International Cricket Festival.

WHCC won all 5 games in round robin and cruised in Finals. South African cricket legend Shaun Pollock was the chief guest of the festival.




Finals was played between WHCC and Sarasota CC of Florida. West Indies Test player Shivnarine Chanderpaul played for Sarasota CC, which gave WHCC players a great opportunity to bat and bowl against an international player.



Everyone enjoyed the 4 day festival, and by far the best trip ever for many of them.

Kudos to the organizing committee of the festival who worked hard for months to make this festival a great success.
