Cricket is not a sport that's well known to a lot of Americans, but its been played for hundreds of years.
And one of the top cricket players in the country just happens to be a local guy.
Usman Shuja, 24, has been playing almost his entire life.
"I was raised in an environment where cricket was dominant. My dad played professional cricket for 12 years. So, it was kind of in my blood,” Shuja said.
Shuja plays in the Central Texas Cricket League in Round Rock, and his team will play in the league's championship game out at Old Settlers Park on Oct. 5.
"He is really good. I've played a lot of cricket in the U.S. But I have not faced any fast baller at his pace in the United States,” said Majad Ahmad, the president of the Central Texas Cricket League.
In fact, Shujga is so good, he is only one of 14 players to make the U.S. cricket team.
"I think it's good for Central Texas that we have a player going into the U.S. team. I call him the Roger Clemens of our club. Basically he's that fast,” Ahmad said.
"Now that I've made it to the U.S. team I would like to stick on to the U.S. team and help them qualify for the World Cup. Which would be my dream. Once we qualify for the World Cup, which might be too optimistic a goal, but definitely making it to the World Cup would be a dream,” Shuja said. "On a team generally there are five baggers and five pitchers, and one catcher. There are only three fast pitchers on the team. So only three fast pitchers made it to the U.S. team. So I'm at least in the top three."
