UNITED WAY CRICKET 1989

A major event in the history of Canadian cricket occurred on November 5, 1989 when the United Way Cricket Match held at the Toronto Sky Dome between the West Indies and a Rest of the World X1 drew a crowd of 40,570 to set a new attendance record for North America. It was also a bonanza for the United Way of Greater Toronto when a record total of $550,000 was raised for charity. The first game to be played indoors took place at the-then SkyDome on Nov. 5, 1989. At the time fans were starved of international cricket as there was no television coverage. So it came as no surprise that 40,000 raucous fans attended the charity match for the United Way to watch the likes of the legendary Viv Richards. Ben Sennick led the South Asian/Black/Caribbean communities in the organization of the first United Way Cricket match in Toronto.
