San Francisco [USA], September 21 (ANI): Minor League Cricket (MiLC) announced on Thursday that the third season of America's most extensive cricket championship will conclude at the nation's premier cricket venue, Grand Prairie Stadium in Texas.
The championship final will take place on Sunday at 5:30 pm. Tickets start at USD 5 and are available for purchase at www.minorleaguecricket.com.
