Germany win bronze at European Women’s Tournament in Jersey

WNTThe Women’s European T20 Tournament took place in Jersey this year and our ladies were pumped, well prepared and ready for the challenge. On the way to Jersey, last years runners up played 2 friendlies against a Dutch club selection in Deventer. The first match was won by Germany. Batting first, the ladies scored an impressive 150 that proved too much to chase for the Dutch team, due to the tight bowling attack of Germany. The second game was not as easy. The Dutch team posted 199 on the board including a century from one of the national players Heather Siegers. Faltering under pressure the German ladies managed to bat out the 20 overs but only scored 99. Having learned a lot from that game and discussing the details, the ladies were on their way to Jersey.

Familiar faces but a different name in Wintech Bundesliga Final

BundesligaThis year’s DCB Wintech Bundesliga reaches ist climax in Werder (Havel) on Sunday 30th August with the final match between the hosts Havelländischer Cricket Club Werder and last year’s losing finalists SKG Walldorf (Hessen). The games starts at 11am.

If HCCW win the title it will be a new name on the honours board but it will not be a new experience for the majority of their players who moved from the disbanded DSSC at the end of last season. DSSC had won last year’s Bundesliga after beating SKG Walldorf in Frankfurt. This year, HCCW beat Köln CC in a rain affected semi-final to reach the final.

For Walldorf, it is their third final in succession after winning the title in 2013 against THCC Rot-Gelb Hamburg, and then losing to DSSC last year. This year they beat Stuttgart Cricket Verein by 8 wickets in the semi-final.

It promises to be a great game of cricket between two teams who have proven over the last three years to be the best teams in the country.
