Way-forward to Season 2021
Hey people - we hope everyone is safe and sound with their families. Despite the lurking threat of COVID and with the challenging situation we have had a fantastic season of Cricket. Zurich Lions Cricket Club would like to thank all it's supporters, players and Cricket Switzerland management for managing an extra-ordinary season with all the safety measures. We are thankful and couldn't have asked much for a great cricket season, after all sports and cricket is such a binding force.
In the recently concluded Pickwick T-20 and CSPL league Cricket Switzerland - Zurich Lions CC would also like to congratulate all the players for giving their best on and off the field. Just a margin of a hanging thread we missed out semis-berth for T-20 on net run rates.
Nevertheless, plenty to take positives from the season; Mayur and Ankush batted brilliantly; Gokul, Lokesh & Amit gave ample support whenever needed in batting unit. Kanishk, Freddie as opener bowlers; Sara and Mayur as good spin partners and young bloods of Sarfaraz, Omed and Aditya as good bowling and fielding unit – on a calm shoulder of captain Senthil; mentored by a practical and cool headed Shehsu- Zurich Lions can promise only to get better in terms of skills and approach coming seasons.
We would hereby also congratulate all our club players who did amazingly well and would like to call out especially the below players for their outstanding contribution in this season and look forward for an exciting season next year.
