Cricket: 'It's What the Community Loves'

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

More than a billion people are expected to watch India play Pakistan in the Cricket World semi-final. It's the first time the two countries have played since the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Watching from the U.S. are New York Police Department Detective Jeff Thompson and Sergeant Adeel Rana of the NYPD Community Affairs Bureau. They help sponsor 200 young kids in New York play cricket each year and they are watching the big game from a cricket party in Brooklyn.
