The Geneva Cricket Club is now an Associate Member of Cricket Switzerland

Full Member

In the process of its reintegration into the realm of Swiss cricket, the Geneva Cricket Club became an Affiliate Member to Cricket Switzerland (CS) last year. The objective for our Club was obviously to take it to the final stage by becoming a fully fledged member of the Swiss cricket federation.

Now the objective is accomplished! At the last Annual General Meeting of Cricket Switzerland on 18 February in Bern, Associate Members voted unanimously for elevating the status of our Club.

This means that Geneva CC has now voting rights and that it is automatically eligible to play any national competition under the auspices of Cricket Switzerland (we previously required an exceptional authorisation from the Members to do so). The Associate membership gives other rights to our Club, such as the power to propose amendments to the constitution or joining other Associates to call for an extraordinary General Meeting, etc.

The Geneva Cricket Club would like to thank everyone within and outside of Cricket Switzerland for making it possible. We are proud to be part of the great Swiss cricket family!

Indoor friendlies against GICC

The day that followed the Annual General Meeting, Geneva CC played two T20s against GICC at the indoor sports centre of the Bout-du-Monde in Champel. Not surprisingly, Geneva CC continued their long unbeaten run against GICC and were victorious in the two games:

First match: Geneva Cricket Club, 132 for 6 in 20 overs (Saqib 39*, Khurram 30 [retired], Leo 2-23), beat Geneva International Cricket Club, 106 all out in 20 overs (Leo 35, Khurram 2-5, Ali 2-7), by 26 runs

Second match: Geneva Cricket Club, 125 for 7 in 18.2 overs (Anser 40, Ali 27*, Girish 3-31), beat Geneva International Cricket Club, 123 for 7 in 20 overs (Viki 33, Massoud 1-13), by 3 wickets
