TRIUMF of Cricket

  TRI-University Meson Facility is not a good name for TRIUMF because it is now owned by sixteen universities and is not limited to mesons. It is Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics and located in Vancouver.

Cricket is not the national game of Canada. Or India, officially, for that matter. Practically it is. Two physicists from TRIUMF have incorporated their cricket experience in particular and India experiences in general in their blog posts on particle physics blog called Quantum Diaries. These posts can be read to get a cultural feeling of particle physics as well as foreigners' experience of India and cricket. Here they are : one, two, three, four.
