On August 18, USYCA and DreamCricket Academy welcomed ICC Hall of Fame inductee Sunil Gavaskar to the DreamCricket facility in Hillsborough, New Jersey. The "Meet The Legend" event was sponsored by MetLife, which also donated gift bags to the adults and signed Sunil Gavaskar mini cricket bats to the chidren.
Before the coaching sessions got underway, the audience heard from USYCA President Jamie Harrison, DreamCricket's Kranthi Bayya and Gavaskar, who praised USYCA for its national leadership in youth cricket. Many of the parents in attendance asked Harrison about free cricket sets for their children's schools. Also in attendance were USYCA board members Jatin Patel of Indiana and Vasu Ram of Massachusetts.
At the conclusion of the day, Gavaskar took questions from the youth players and posed for photographs.
