Popis The Orange Cricket Club is a sports club whose members are expatriates of different races, religions, habits, identities. Its members are individuals originating from traditional cricket countries (most of them are Indians, then Pakistanis, Australians, South Africans, New Zealanders) who share experiences with migration and are interested in playing their favourite sport in the “hosting” context of the Czech Republic. The paper explores the specificity of language use in shaping the club members' social relationships in this multicultural environment. It explains how language as a discursive practice represents a way to collective self-presentation, building bonding social nets and resilience (adapting to new conditions and overcoming crises caused by relocation). Thus, through discursive analysis of interview transcripts and fieldnotes, the paper focuses on ways the language is used (not only) as a means of communication in a specific social/ cultural context.
