Report by Jasmine Kohli
A Cricket Tournament by Indian Association of Lausanne (IAL) was held on 1st September 2018, on grounds of Cossonay Cricket Club.
Five teams took part in the event comprising of amateurs to seasoned cricketers. Seven matches were played starting from 10am till 6pm when the final match ended.
The winners of the tournament were Morges team with Vevey Knights being the runners-up of the tournament. Both the teams were awarded winners and runners-up trophies respectively from Indian Association of Lausanne. Mr. Wasim from Morges team received a medal for being the ‘Player of the Day’.
Besides, the attraction of the match was also Cricket for the kids - our little budding players who were enthusiastic through the day to learn the sport and participate in the event. Being a cold
day, the event was fun-filled with refreshments for the players and the volunteers from IAL.
We thank Cossonay Cricket Club to give an opportunity to IAL to organize the event and the volunteers and the participants to make this event a success. We are hopeful of organizing this event at a bigger scale in the future.
We also thank Cricket Switzerland for helping us to promote our event which helped us reach out to a wider audience.
