Czech Lions trip to Malta, October 2013
The Czech Lions team finished last in the first Malta
Cricket Association Autumn Twenty20 Competition at the Marsa
Sports Club, Malta between the 18th and 20th of October,
Despite finishing winless, all who travelled agreed it was a
great tournament and a wonderful place to visit. Malta beat
Hungary in the final, with Russia finishing third after
beating the Lions in the tournament's first game.
A weakened Czech team suffered with the bat, as each match
finished with every player except one scoring less than 20.
Full details on the tournament can be found at the Malta
Knights slip to allow Visigoths in
Matchday Six of the Winter League began in controversial fashion, with Barbarians Visigoths awarded a victory over PCC Knights as the latter were delayed by traffic. Visigoths followed up with victory over Joshiley Dragons, who are still searching for their first victory.
It means that, heading into the final round of league matches Visigoths can secure fourth place with victory, though they face a tough task in taking on unbeaten table-toppers PCC Kings. If they are defeated, the Knights can leapfrog both them and opponents PCC Rooks with a win.
Results from Matchday 6 of the Winter League:
Visigoths beat PCC Knights (forfeit)
Bohemians beat Joshiley Dragons, 88 to 38
PCC Knights beat
Bohemians, 48 to 43
Visigoths beat Joshiley Dragons, 60 to 41

The first wicket should be ready by the end of March, and the second wicket hopefully before the league season starts in May. The quality of the wickets should lead to a much higher standard of play locally!
