Fight for Central European Cricketing Glory
Central Europe Cup @ Vinoř Cricket Ground from 3rd to 5th June 2016
The first cricket match in the Czech Republic was played in 1997. The main body, Českomoravský Kriketový Svaz, was set up in 2000 to drive forward the development of the game. Currently there are 13 teams and around 300 players active in the Czech Republic. In 2015, the Czech team hosted Poland, Malta and a Swedish team in the Central Europe Cup, where Poland came out as overall winners in a closely fought competition.

National Teams from Estonia and Switzerland will be travelling to compete in this trilateral series that will be played in the 50-over format. Each team will have 300 balls (50x 6 ball ‘overs’) or 10 ‘outs’ to score as many runs as they can in their innings. The team that scores the most from their innings will win. The winning team will score 2 points and the losers 0. If the game is tied then both teams will get 1 point.
“We would like to invite everyone to come and watch the games at the Vinoř Cricket Ground. Entrance is free and refreshments for spectators will be available. Each innings is expected to last around 3.5 hours, so around 7.5 hours in total with a break at half-time. There will be a bus service available to take spectators to Vinoř Cricket Ground from the centre of Prague,“ says Chris Pearce, Chairman and Development Officer of the ČMKS.

The national team made their international debut in 2009. Among their main successes belongs e.g. second place in a Division 3 Europe tournament, held in Slovenia in 2010.
