Giving Back to the Community


CricBay is a vibrant community that has come together around a common passion among South Asians (from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, SriLanka, Pakistan and India) i.e. playing Cricket. Starting from 7 teams back in 2006 it has now grown to a community of 108 teams (and counting) and upwards of 3500 members who play cricket round the year. More here

Besides enjoying what we love most, we also strongly feel that we must contribute to the community-at-large by supporting various causes in the areas of Health, Children, Education, Poverty and Hunger.To that end, right from the start of this league, the founders of this league have made it a priority to support charitable endeavors directly or by joining hands with like-minded organizations that serve the purpose. The entire community has wholeheartedly backed all the giving initiatives of the league.
