This is the story or the most remarkable cricket team in the world. Entirely composed of immigrants to Italy from India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, closed down once by racism and religious prejudice, its two teenage leaders, Fernando and Shince are rebuilding the team.

Dearest This is Not Cricketers,

WOW!

89%!!

We've very nearly reached our goal - with the incredibly generous support of 146 people we have received pledges amounting to $13,270.... and rising...

We now have just until Friday 24th April to complete the campaign and collect the last 11% of our target of $15,000.

Your support of our the crowdfunding campaign will enable us to fund our first shoot in Rome in May and provide us with a very persuasive argument to make a proposal to film funders and broadcasters, This Is Not Cricket is about to be born. We look forward to sending you links to the film but also inviting you to see it in cinemas!


We have had two great articles in the press that speak about the project in some depth :

huffingtonpost.com - This is Not Cricket http://www.huffingtonpost.com/e-nina-rothe/this-is-not-cricket-but-m_b_6998910.html

This is the critical moment when we need you to reach out and ask friends to join us, we have until Friday to complete our funding.
