Cricket thriving in Moncton, NB

From CBC:-
The Moncton Cricket Club is on its way to the New Brunswick Cricket League final.

They did it all in their first year and without home grounds.

The Moncton club will play at Saint John for the championship on Sunday.

The club formed in 2017 but only started playing league matches this year. They didn’t have enough players to field an official team earlier.

Nick Badyal, Cricket Moncton president, said the club is made up largely of newcomers to Canada. He said many players who had played with the club left the city when they received their permanent residency.

But after some restructuring and recruiting, the club now has 40 players on its roster. It is considering a second team next year.
