TRNC Cricket looking for major honours
With contnued bad weather stopping play the good news is that the long awaited final of the Creditwest North Cyprus Cricket League is to be played and the deciding match between top placed TRNC CC and 2nd Nicosia this Sunday 18th January at the Bellapaise Staduim starting at 11.00am. .
The leagues in North and South Cyprus have been dogged lately by pitch availability with the UN ground being repaired and the North suffering from a mixture of water logged pitches and no places to play due to football fixture congestion.
The TRNC have been in excellent form in the cricket’s ultra-short version, not only sharing the title 2 recently in the Peshawar Memorial Tournament but on New Year’s day winning the ‘Goodbye 2014 Welcome 2015′ annual tennis ball festival, with the team’s Janwali winning the man-of-the-tournament and Shahzad the Master Blaster trophy foremost sixes. Team captain Danish Afridi is delighted with the winning habit, but admits 30 over cricket is very different to playing only 5 over games and worries about some of his team’s concentration that must be maintained.
The TRNC Club is hoping for lots of support at 11.00am at Pia Bella Stadium for their decisive 30 over/side game on Sunday 18th January.
