iTECH hosted the official Cricket All Stars inaugural event, in New York, to honor distinguished legends of the game of cricket. The cruise around Manhattan was organized just ahead of the three T20 games between Sachin Tendulkar's Blasters and Shane Warne’s Warriors played in New York City, Houston, and Los Angeles.
The cruise was attended by all-time cricketing greats such as Brian Lara, Courtney Walsh, Shoaib Akhtar, Curtly Ambrose, Andrew Symonds, Glenn Mc Grath, Ricky Ponting, Mathew Hayden, Ajit Agarkar, Jacques Kallis, Jonty Rhodes, Shaun Pollock, Moin Khan, Saqlain Mushtaq, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara, Graeme Swann, Muttiah Muralitharan, Carl Hooper, Allan Donald, Daniel Vettori, Simon Taufel (Umpire) & Alan Wilkins (Commentator).
The cricket players witnessed the dramatic skyline of New York City, and spectacular fireworks show over the iconic, statue of liberty.

— Simon Taufel,
We all loved the iTECH cruise. It was great to see the Manhattan lights from a different perspective. A cruise with the All Stars under the New York sky was a real privilege. You know it is a once in a lifetime experience when you see fireworks skyrocket above the iconic Statue of Liberty. I offer my heartfelt appreciation to iTECH and America.

As a group of players and broadcasters, we could not have received a more welcoming reception than our hosts iTECH provided us. To see one of the world’s great cities in such fashion has left an indelible memory. The fireworks display over the Statue of Liberty was out of this world! Simply, an unforgettable experience with the Cricket All Stars.

It was great to catch up with my former rivals whom I have fought many battles. The highlight of the tour was the iTECH yacht cruise and the fireworks with Lady Liberty in the background.
