McGill University granted its cricket team official status this week, to join the expanding list of Canadian Universities actively participating in the game.

McGill's first match, after their official status was awarded, is against Concordia University in Montreal next weekend.

Cricket Canada is promoting cricket through its educational system to help raise the profile of the sport in the country.

Toronto's York University gave the nation's cricket a shot in the arm when they were crowned North America's top University by winning the American College Cricket Championship earlier this year.

The Quebec Cricket Federation has also been working closely with area universities in promoting the game, as cricket goes from strength to strength in Canada.
