Great fun at summer junior tournament!

The Czech Cricket Summer Cup 2014 was held on Sunday 15th June at the English International School Prague (EISP), where the under-12 and under-14 divisions battled it out for the prized silverware on offer. Teams from EISP, the International School Prague (ISP), Riverside School and Prague British School (PBS) came together for the first Czech junior tournament to be played on three grass pitches.

PCC take 40-over league title!

PCC won their sixth 40-over league in seven years, defeating 2013 champions Dresden by six wickets in Saturday's final.

PCC's well-rounded bowling attack never allowed Dresden to gain a foothold in the match, and when Rajh brilliantly ran out the dangerous Siva, the Germans were facing an uphill struggle.


New pitch installation complete!

At the end of 2013 the Executive Committee decided to order two new quality pitches to install at Kriket Vinoř, and with the pleasantly-mild Winter work started early on the first installation.

The first wicket is now ready, and was trialled in the Vinohrady vs Barbarians friendly on April 13th.

The second wicket was completed in August and hosted its first competitive match with the T20 League's third-place playoff between Bohemian CC and Dresden. The quality of the wickets should lead to a much higher standard of play locally!


Partnership with CANZA announced!

Czech Cricket is delighted to announce that it has formed a partnership with the Czech Australia New Zealand Association (CANZA).

PCC Knights take Winter League glory!

PCC Knights beat clubmates PCC Kings with a dominant display in the final, winning 114-84.

The defending champion Kings team went into the final unbeaten, but Knights had given them a big scare earlier in the tournament, and they built pressure in the final with a strong display in the field.

Kings batted first but were held to 84, with Hilal taking a couple of great reaction catches including one off the final ball. And some confident hitting had Knights on 83 even before captain Sudhir went out in the last pair with Roy.

National team bowlers Rohit and Rajh threw everything they could at the batsmen, but they could not pick up enough wickets to change the course of the match, and the Knights ended up as the victors.

Bohemians proved to be much stronger in the 3rd-place playoff, though Vino Bianco impressed during the tournament and deserved their top-half finish. PCC Rooks took 5th place with victory over Barbarians Vandals, and Vino Rosso won the 7th-place match against Barbarians Visigoths.

Final Winter League standings:

1. PCC Knights
2. PCC Kings
3. Bohemians
4. Vinohrady Bianco
5. PCC Rooks
6. Barbarians Vandals
7. Vinohrady Rosso
8. Barbarians Visigoths

PCC added the T20 league to their 40-over league triumph after beating Vinohrady in a tense final. Sudesh Wickremasinghe was the star of the day, scoring two half-centuries as PCC first beat Dresden in the semi-final before pipping Vinohrady by five wickets with nine balls to spare in the final.



Successful Romania tour for Eagles

The Czech Eagles (national developmental team) tour to Romania was a great success, with a squad largely made up of Czech players performing at a decent level.
