On behalf of the selection committee of the Swiss Cricket association, Swiss Cricket is pleased to announce the teams for the three International Twenty20 matches against Austria that will take place at En Marche in Coosonay, during their tour to Switzerland on Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd June 2013.
As we are in the process of building up a team for the long term so it was good to see a lot of
players staking a claim for a place in the team which is a real good sign for the future of Swiss Cricket. While selecting the team, preference was given to players who have made themselves available for the UK trip, and, who have been performing consistently in the domestic tournaments.
As these will be our home games and International cricket is coming to us after a long break at the senior level so we are also trying to give a chance to players who are not part of the UK team but made themselves available for selection for the matches subsequently.
The Selctrion Committee wants to reiterate that as places are limited (only 11 player can play), so we have tried to accommodate as many players as possible and will ensure that the players of the UK bound team get at least two games each to keep them in good stead for the tour.
We also hope that in future more players will make themselves available for International matches well in advance, to help us put up the best team possible for these matches.
