One Response to Couch Talk 51 with Peter Della Penna, USA Cricket Reporter

  1. Great interview, Subash, and yes, the Florida T20s were probably an opportunity wasted, on many levels. But who knows? Some long-term positive may come from them yet.

    If Peter is a pessimist, it’s because he mainly sees USA cricket from the topside, where the reality invites pessimism.

    I’m lucky, because I spend my time with USA cricket at the grassroots, watching children who are excitedly discovering the joys of the game. From my perspective, it’s impossible to be anything but optimistic.
