At last Saturday’s Annual General Meeting in Frankfurt the DCB honoured three men who have devoted years to the development of German cricket with honourary membership of the DCB.
Firstly, the founding father of NRW cricket, Mr. Nigel Keen was honoured. Nigel was responsible for the development of cricket in NRW for several years and was responsible, together with Bernard Nallawangsa, Prasad Buwekanabahu and Nimal Perera for getting a permanent pitch outside of the British military bases.
Also honoured was Dr. Arshad Razvi who has worked tirelessly for the development of cricket in Hessen and is a former Vice President of the DCB.
Finally, Keith Thompson was honoured in the same year that he stood down after eight years as national team coach. Keith has worked relentlessly for years in German cricket, holding various offices including youth officer and he is the current President of the North German Cricket Association.
Congratulations to all three and many thanks for all your efforts over many years in establishing cricket in Germany.
Current German national team player André Leslie has written a book on the trials and tribulations of German cricket called “Battting for Berlin”.
Documenting Berlin CC’s rise from amateur club to national champions in 2010, this book gives a blow by blow account of our growing sport in Germany over the last few years. It also gives a personal account of André’s journey on the way to representing his new, adopted country.
DCB members can purchase the book at half price (12€) from André directly if they place their orders before Christmas. Please send all orders to andre.leslie @ gmail.com, with your name and address.
Those interested in an electronic copy of the book can purchase it online here: http://amzn.to/1bgzLqW

Hamburg – The youngsters attending the winter indoor programme at THCC Rot-Gelb in Hamburg had a pleasant surprise when they turned up to training last Saturday and Sunday.
Thanks to the DCB, THCC Rot-Gelb are now the proud owners of a Stinger 5000 bowling machine and a throw down net. This equipment has been supplied in recognition of THCC’s exemplary youth work and came complete with a starter pack supply of soft cricket balls and tennis balls. Only the battery, a 12V leisure battery, had to be sourced locally. Diesen Beitrag weiterlesen »
Die Cricket-Abteilung der SKG Erfelden veranstaltete am 20. Oktober 2013 ein Hallenturnier in der Erfelder Großsporthalle.
Unter 9 angetretenen Mannschaften wurde von 10 bis 19 Uhr Cricket gespielt und der Sieger ausgemacht.
Den 1. Platz belegte die Mannschaft aus Hattersheim gefolgt von den Darmstädter Cricketspielern.
Unter den teilnehmenden Mannschaften waren der Deutsche Meister aus Walldorf, die SKV Mörfelden, 2 Teams aus Rodgau und SC Riedberg.

Die Erfelder wurden bei der Turnier-Organisation unterstützt vom Präsidenten des Baden Württembergischen Cricketverbandes, Assam Butt.
SKG-Vorsitzender Eckardt Stein überreichte Pokale an die Erst- und Zweitplatzierten und dankte den Organisatoren sowie dem Sponsor Global Food für die gelungene Veranstaltung.
It is with sadness that the DCB announces the untimely passing of Dr. Farrukh Baig. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this time for the sorrow they have to bear.
Farrukh played a key part in the development of cricket, whether at Hassloch Cosmopolitans CC, a founder member of the DCB, where from 1984 he became a driving force together with the other initiators, Dr. Asad Sadick and Dr. Arshad Razvi, or more recently since 2008 at Cosmopolitan Mannheim. He held administrative posts with the Hessen Cricket Association when Hassloch were attached to that body, and later with the Baden-Württemberg Cricket Association, founded in 2010.
With, then, 30 years involvement in the development of cricket in Germany Farrukh Baig has left a real cricket legacy and will long be remembered among the cricket fraternity here.
The DCB is delighted to announce a Bundesliga sponsorship deal with the British cricket coaching company T20 International for 2014.
The first contact with T20 was made a few years ago by DCB treasurer Siggi Franz who was the instigator of several Coaching camps that have taken place in various parts of the country. Since then the relationship has steadily grown and now we will see things move on to the next Level.
DCB General Manager Brian Mantle has been in negotiations with T20 for several months about a deal that will see financial investment by T20 into German cricket as well as see them organise more of their excellent coaching camps in association with DCB member clubs in 2014 and beyond.
This is great news for German cricket. Diesen Beitrag weiterlesen »
