Mukesh Patel is a dedicated USCA member, who has been with USCA since the start. He along with the President, Ashok Patel, started the grass roots of USCA. Dedication, eagerness and a teacher of the game would describe Muki.
Muki has worked his way up from within USCA to now the nation stage. He has toured with USCA in all USCA tours with a managerial title which lead him to his future success with USACA. Noticing the success of USCA and its tours, USACA (America's Cricket Board) asked Muki to be selector for many age groups for the national team since 2002. Muki has a hand in picking many successful teams varying from U13 to U19 and is still in the selection committee in the Atlantic Region in various age groups. He is hoping one day that all this hard work will pay off and be rewarded in a Head coach position for the National Team.
