By: Vency Saurabh Patel (March 2024)

In the realm of American sports, fans have long celebrated iconic players in baseball, basketball, football, and soccer. Yet amidst this fervor for established sports, lies an inviting opportunity to welcome another cherished global game – Cricket!

As cricket steadily gains ground at grassroots levels across the USA, with the upcoming Men’s T20 World Cup being co-hosted by the USA and West Indies, and with the anticipation of Cricket’s inclusion in the 2028 LA Olympics, an exciting window opens for cricket to entrench itself within American sports culture.

Could cricket emerge as the next significant frontier for American women in sports? Cricket, as a sport, has proven to be a catalyst for promoting empowerment, leadership, and confidence among women. Introducing women’s cricket at grassroots levels holds immense potential to advocate for gender equality and inclusivity, even within Western societies.
