Twenty20 sponsored Germany U19s awarded DCB team of the year
The T20 International sponsored Germany national Under 19 Team, which won Germany’s first men’s international tournament for 15 years in Belgium this summer, has won the Deutscher Cricket Bund team of the year award.
The 16 man squad prepared for the tournament with four victories in four matches in Bremen over an English County side before travelling to Brussels and Antwerp to take on Switzerland, Belgium,
Luxembourg and France. A final day win over France secured the much deserved title after wins against Luxembourg and Belgium. A defeat to the Swiss was the only negative point of a fantastic week of cricket.
Several of the players have taken the jump to the DCB Super Series and two of them (Tony Verma and Dushant Kumar) have even played their first matches for the national team in their tour to Denmark earlier this summer.
The vast majority of the squad will still be available for selection next year when the tournament will hopefully be staged in Germany. The team will be honoured at this year’s AGM in Munich.
