U11 junior summer tournament

Bachgraben, 25-26 July 2020

Zurich Crickets Cricket Club hosted an U11 Summer Cricket Cup at Bachgraben on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th July 2020, a substitute for the Junior Zuoz Cricket festival that was cancelled due to the corona virus,

Like everything else, cricket was also impacted by the ongoing Covid crisis, but after cancellation of multiple events, finally our juniors had a chance to play an outdoor cricket tournament. And they grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

The Zurich Summer Cricket Cup was newly introduced as a replacement of Zuoz Cricket Festival, cancelled due to Covid situation. The tournament was hosted by Zurich Crickets on the astro-turf pitches at Bachgraben, Basel.

The format of the tournament was a 4-team round-robin, giving each team an opportunity to play one another,  followed by a 3rd/4th play off and then a final. All matches were 16 overs.

Fixtures & results

Zurich Crickets, Basel Dragons, Dragonflies & GRYCC competed in eight 16 over matches over the two days.
