ACC announced that an All America 2nd Team will also be named. The organization noted that, while the number of Canadian teams participating was not enough to allow selection of an All Canada team, Hassan Mirza and Harsh Desai (both of Ryerson) warranted that designation.
Selection was based on performances at the ACC National Championship and Regional Championships, ACC Home and Away league matches, sportsmanship on and off the field and contributions made off the field which promote American College Cricket. Players must have played in the 2013 National Championship to be eligible. Selection process was aided by ACC's use of CricHQ’s software, the organization noted.
