Firebirds leave for Florida to play in the first USA Women's Cricket Open
October 07, 2010
Firebirds have put together a nice blend of youth and experience for the upcoming 2010 USA Women's Cricket Open tournament to be held at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida. Joining team Firebirds are three players from team Seattle Chargers. For this tournament, the team is named Silicon Valley Firebirds and is captained by Ritu Bhargava. The team also has experienced players like Durga Das and Erica Rendler who contributed to team USA's victory over Canada in the ICC America's Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier (WCWCQ) played early this year in Canada. Rajashree Mahale, another experienced and accomplished player, has been a constant support and mentor to the team. However, she is not able to participate in this tournament. The Firebirds are all set to leave to Florida where women's cricket is going to get the much needed recognition and support in this country.
Below is the complete list of players representing Team Silicon Valley Firebirds in the first ever USA Women's Cricket Open tournament to be held at Florida on Oct 8th through 10th.
