Nebraska's Largest Cricket Tournament Hits Omaha

When it comes to sports in Nebraska, most talk is all about football and basketball.

Over the weekend though, many visitors to the area were focused on cricket.

The 7th Annual Indoor Cricket Tournament Friends of Asia Cup is taking place at Grace University.

25 teams representing six different countries are competing.

It's not only the biggest cricket tournament in the state, but also a lot of fun for those involved.

"People are so busy in Omaha. So busy with work, family, things like that. They really need an outlet. This facility here gives even the families a way to come have fun," says Giri Mohanan, an organizer with Friends of Asia.

The competition continues on November 9th and 10th, and the championship round is November 23rd.
