MEDIA RELEASE – PLAYER SIGNING 2022 - KARIMA GORE

May 11, 2022.
KARIMA GORE SIGNED UP BY THE PHILADELPHIANS AS A PRIORITY DOMESTIC PLAYER FOR MINOR LEAGUE CRICKET 2022

The Philadelphians Cricket franchise is excited to announce USA National Cricket player Karima Gore as our “Priority Domestic” signing for the Minor League Cricket 2022 season.

Gore is an American professional cricketer who burst into the international cricketing scene in 2019 including making his List A debut for team USA in the “2019 ICC World Cricket League Division Two” tournament. It is in the same tournament that USA finished in the top 4 thereby gaining the coveted One Day International status amongst International Cricket Council member nations.

Apart from his credentials as a stellar all-rounder, he is also considered as one of the best fielders in the international associate cricket circuit.

It is worth mentioning that Gore became the first ever player to be drafted in the history of Minor league Cricket when The Philadelphians Cricket franchise roped him in as their first pick in the 2020 MiLC Exhibition Season.

“I’m very happy to join The Philadelphians camp this year. I had a good experience with them in the Minor League Cricket exhibition season and I’m confident it will be another good season joining Philly again. I’d like to thank the management for having me.”, says Gore.

“It is Home coming for KG(Karima Gore) and it’s almost the equivalent of Allen Iverson coming back to 76ers. KG is one of the most talented cricketers in America and we foresee this to be a long-term association going forward. Apart from being the best fielder in America currently, KG also brings balance to the team with his ability to bowl crucial overs and finish games with the bat. Wishing him a very long second (and forever) innings with The Philadelphians.”, says Mr. Santhosh Kandasamy, Founding Partner – The Philadelphians Cricket LLC.

Minor League Cricket Season 2 kicks off on June 25, 2022 with the domestic player drafts set to be held on May 12, 2022.
