CSPL off to a Roaring Start
The Cricket Switzerland Premier League got off to an impressive start with Geneva CC scoring a significant amount of runs to register the first victory off the first game of the Western Division. The match took place on a greyish and biting cold Sunday. The Geneva Cricket Club has remained out of the main Swiss cricket competition for a prolonged period, so this first official match in six years was an occasion for the club to renew its commitment to the Spirit of the Game. The weather forecast was determinedly mediocre but no showers were expected. With a wet outfield and soaked pitch, both batting and bowling conditions were set to be difficult for both teams.
Geneva CC 375 for 9 in 40 overs (Idrees 132, Khurram 90, Ankit 56, Anser 55, Aamir 5-57)
beat Geneva XI Stars (Arjun 58, Lalit 49, Khurram 2-29) 255 ao in 33.2 overs by 120 runs
