****************--- ALL Cricket Admirers ---****************
It's the FINAL week of the Iowa Cricket League’s 2016th 16 overs Hard Tennis Ball tournament Series (Gold Sponsor – QCI). 


Any active sportsman has to be very focused; you've got to be in the right frame of mind. If your energy is diverted in various directions, you do not achieve the results. I need to know when to switch on and switch off: and the rest of the things happen around that. Cricket is in the foreground, the rest is in the background.” - Sachin Tendulkar (generally named God of Cricket)


With that quote, it’s important for all of us in IowaPremier League (IPL) to respect the fairness of Game of cricket – A gentlemen’s game where we all as a community of more than 300 families are coming together and enjoying the dedicated Cricket grounds of Wilson Park and Pella Sports complex.
