City of Toronto staff and members of the community will announce and congratulate the 12 Toronto youth selected for CIMA Mayor's Cricket Team that will participate in the fifth annual Cricket Across the Pond program.

Date: Friday, June 22
Time: 10 to 11 a.m.; remarks at 10:15 a.m.

Attending on Friday will be Gulzari Babber, President of Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA); Amal Ratnayake, Chair of CIMA Canada; Zanita DiSalle, Regional Vice President, RBC Royal Bank; Tom Mihalik, owner of Tom's Place; and Jonathan Dart, United Kingdom Consul General.

The inaugural Toronto Mayor’s Team versus London Mayor’s Team cricket match will take place in London, England on July 17.

The goals of the Cricket Across the Pond project are to improve access to the game of cricket, reach out and engage young people through cricket, improve physical activity among youth, build leadership skills in young cricketers and provide an opportunity for young people to represent Toronto and Canada abroad.
