THE BRONX - The largest cricket complex in the country is now open and it's right here in the Bronx.

The cricket fields at Van Cortlandt Park underwent a $13 million renovation over the past three years. Many Bronx residents are avid players, and some city schools will now be incorporating it into after school programs.
