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.
Two film crews will be making TV reports and documentaries about the event with a slant on our refugee situation in Germany and German Cricket TV will be filming all games with nine cameras.
Medals will be presented to the winners & runners-up for the ODI tournament only.
