Is 50 people enough to push a cricket field as high priority project? I feel this needs to be at least voted by the whole community.

I see a fairly consistent number of adults playing cricket on the sports park baseball fields, and its no secret Pleasanton's Indian population has grown immensely over the years.

I don't think we force this population to play baseball in order to integrate into our culture, I think we celebrate that we all enjoy outdoor activities and sports, and cricket being a growing one - having the sports park (or another shared outdoor venue) become central to all communities is a good thing.

Build it.
