    There are a bunch of local teams

    Enough that there's a Massachusetts State Cricket League that plays at a reasonably high level for amateurs. That's not counting all the unaffiliated clubs and the pick-up games at a lot of the local colleges, where some Indian grad student has a roll-away crease they can just drop in the middle of the soccer field and play.

    I watched some guys play at

    I watched some guys play at the Boston Athletic Club last Sunday. I couldn't follow it at all but they seemed to be enjoying themselves.
