The Léman Cup is the season opener for Swiss Junior Cricket, and sees a match at each age group between Schweiz (Basel Dragons, Zurich Crickets) and Suisse (Cossonay, Gingins, GRYCC) teams. Cossonay Cricket Club host the matches at their En Marche ground.
With dry weather, and a short outfield, high scoring matches were expected.
As the first even in the new age groups, it always promises an exciting two days!
Many thanks to Glenn and Jon of Cossonay for hosting, and for putting on an excellent food truck for lunch!
