****************--- 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. And giving our best sportsmanship attitudes to the game, players, Umpires, teams, community and to all visitors, officials who will be coming to the ground and cherishing the moments of good sports. Remembering our motto is to play awesome cricket and have a great time during the Iowa Summer. In IPL, it’s evident to see passionate cricketers around but it’s important to realize that we are playing in a friendly community atmosphere.
As most of you are aware that we started with 15 teams competing to claim the Annual IPL 2016 T16 Champions trophy.  Finally we got our top 4 semi-finalist who will be meeting each other on Saturday and then winners will meet in Finals on Sunday. So, it is needless to say that this is going to be a great contest for the top spot and comes with a great promise for entertainment.

Come and catch some scintillating LIVE Action this Saturday and Sunday in the FINAL weekend of T16 series, a weekend of a greatly competed tournament.
