Native Russian Participation

Having closely analyzed the Scorecard system developed by ICC as a marker to distribute development grants it is our belief that unless we popularize cricket among native Russians and remain as an expatriate based cricketing community Russian cricket would go nowhere.

There is strong resistance towards an ‘indigenization’ process but we at CR are undaunted. Teams have broken away, members have decamped but we are pursuing our indigenization with single minded determination. The process has commenced and it shall not be reversed.

The Russian cricket team does not want to be taunted as an Indian or Pakistani Second XI and be the butt of jokes in social media fora.

To demonstrate our sincerity towards this reform process we included several native Russian players during Russia’s tour to Bulgaria in 2012 which was welcomed by an ICC Europe official who attended the event.
