Gingins U11 indoor report

9-10 November 2019

Gingins Cricket Club

Over the course of the weekend of 9th & 10th November, Gingins Cricket Club once again hosted its annual indoor tournament at the College Madame De Staël in Carouge (GE) for the U11s.


The teams represented players from Basel/La Chat, GRYCC, Zurich and Cossonay/Gingins - totalling 39 players.

With a scoring system that encouraged accurate bowling, tight fielding and sharp running between the wickets, the overall standard was exceptionally high across the eight matches played in a tight schedule and played in an excellent, competitive spirit.  There were 1778 runs scored off the bat and many 82 wickets taken over the weekend.


The format of the tournament was a 4-team 15/15 round-robin, giving each team an opportunity to play one another, with the victorious team being the one taking the most points.  There were five matches on Saturday and again three matches on Sunday. Many of the matches were closely contested, and the result could have gone either way.
