San Jose, California - A youth cricket game with an international twist is coming to San Jose this weekend when the under-17 team from Cupertino-based California Cricket Academy takes on an under-17 team from Trinidad and Tobago.

The match between the two teams will be Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Joseph George Middle School in San Jose, 277 Mahoney Drive. 

There is no fee to watch the match.

The California Cricket Academy is celebrating 10 years of teaching the sport of cricket to local American youth. 

In August, the team traveled to England face off against other teenage teams in the United Kingdom in a series of goodwill games. The Trinidad and Tobago is dropping by Silicon Valley on its way to a match in Australia, according to Hemant Buch, Cupertino resident and Cal Cricket's founder.

Youth teams representing the United States internationally in cricket have locals from the academy and is made up almost entirely of students who have grown up in the Cupertino Union School District and now Fremont Union High School District.
