Knight Templar Cricket Club History

Knights Templar CC has players who learned to play cricket in different settings. From the Carribean nations of Guyana and Trinidad to the Island of Srilanka, and from the two bordering nations of India and Pakistan, cricketers who love to play cricket in their spare time decided to make a team and participate in the Washington Cricket League. While majority of the team will get its first taste of playing in the Washington Cricket League, the founders of this team have played in the league previously. Sher Afgan Tareen (captain) and Sarfaraz Zaidi (Vice captain) have both played for Himalayan CC in the past. Although the two leaders of this team learned a lot from playing under Himalayan CC, now was the time to take a new turn, make our own decisions, make our own team. We had been thinking about it for quite a while. Driving through highways to reach cricket grounds, Sarfaraz and Sher Afgan would always fantasize having their own team. That fantasy will soon become a reality. The Knights Templar CC is here and we are ready to win the division II title in our nascent season.

Although we are highly impressed by the depth of our roster before playing even a single game, we encourage everyone out there to join our cricket team. This plea goes out especially to high school students who love sports but would love to experience something other than baseball and basketball. If you feel you want to learn to play a new sport, if you want to make new friends and have a hell of a time during your summer break, think about becoming a Knight Templar.

Cricket in America is expressed by immigrants from Carribean and South Asia who miss this game in their new locality and find spare time to play cricket during weekends. However if Cricket is suppose to become a dominant sport in America, then cricket must expand and reach out to those who have never played this sport before. Immigrants have introduced this sport but for it to prosper, this sport must be embraced by others: white, African American and Latino America. Knight Templar CC is composed of immigrants but we will be more than proud if we could make some one who has never touched a bat before into a serious cricketer. In addition to having fun playing this sport that we truly love, it is our mission to spread the game of cricketer in every corner of America.

  1. yes, i will update roster section but it will take some good efort cause i want to make link out of names. so when u click player name it will open their info and picture. so i will wait untill we get to see them playing.. also i need some one who will make each match opponents teams analysis so b4 we play against them we will know the key players of that team...

  2. Great man. We will work on that for sure.
    The sections I was thinking of are the following:
    One section that has our contact, practice field for future recruits.
    One section on team roster.
    One section on team stats. (Scoreboards, personal stats)
    One section called match diary--report on every match.
    One section with pictures.
