Edmonton won the toss and decided to bowl first.

Calgary scored 177 runs in 20 overs.

EPS has had an official cricket team since 2018.

Cricket is a thrilling sport that has captured the hearts of millions. It is the second most popular sport in the world after soccer.

With two teams of eleven players each, the objective is to outscore your opponent by accumulating runs while battling and strategically dismissing their batsmen while bowling.

The earliest cricket games can be traced back to 16th Century England.
