DELKASH SHAHRIARIAN: Women’s cricket champion does it again!
New York based architect and cricketer Delkash Shahriarian has once again been selected by the USA Women’s Selection Panel as part of a squad of 22 players to take part in a camp held by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in Philadelphia from September 9th – 11th.
The squad contains a combination of developing players who took part in the USA Cricket Combines held by ICC earlier in the year as well as some more experienced women who have represented the USA at the international level in the past. The camp is an opportunity for some of the USA’s best female talent to work alongside developing players to drive improvement across the group.
The 3-day event will involve training, internal matches and also competitive matches against a women’s touring team from the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), England. Claire Taylor, who will captain the group and Charlotte Edwards, former England skipper, as well as a number of players with county experience have been included in the MCC squad.
The camp and matches against the MCC touring side will be held at some of the oldest cricket facilities in the USA, including Evansburg Cricket Field, Haverford College – which officially has the only varsity status college cricket team in America – and Merion Cricket Club, one of the oldest cricket clubs in America.
We wish Delkash all the very best for the camp and her future cricketing endeavors and hope that she continues to keep the Zoroastrian flame alive in cricket.
