Swiss U19s will compete in an U19 cricket festival in Berlin from 27th - 31st July 2017.

Organised by the DCB there will be 5 days of T20 & ODI cricket involving U19 teams from hosts Germany, Switzerland, Belgium & Norway on the Maifeld cricket grounds (Olympia-Glockenturm, Am Glockenturm 1, 14053 Berlin, Germany).


The festival begins with a two-day U19 Twenty20 round-robin tournament, followed by a three-day tournament in an ODI 50 over format using ICC regulations/powerplays.
