This isn’t your typical pastime – at least not in Central Florida.

“Cricket was the original bat and ball sport played by the founding fathers of America. It didn’t lose its popularity until the early 1900s,” said Rahul Joshi, co-owner of Orlando Galaxy.

Cricket is a bit like baseball, but the rules are different. Instead of nine innings, there is one inning per team.

Players score by hitting the ball and then run from one end of the field to the other. It takes 10 outs or about 120 pitches to switch sides.

Games in this format last about three hours.

“Like baseball, football or basketball, whoever has the most runs or points at the end of the game wins,” Joshi said.

Silver Star Community Park in Apopka played host to a weekend of cricket matches.

It is part of the 10-week Minor League Cricket Championship that takes place in 21 cities across the country.

“We’ve been in this setup and now the US is taking cricket to the next level,” said Orlando Galaxy co-owner Kunal Patel.

The Orlando Galaxy is one of 27 teams participating in the tournament. They hope this is the start of something bigger.

“We know it will grow, but we need a big effort and US Cricket and minor and major league cricket are now bringing it together,” Patel said.
