This is the first league match GESL played after joining the Cricket Switzerland 2015. The results of the match brought our team to turn a new chapter in our cricket history.  It was evident that both sides engaged in the game in good spirits while showing amazing synergies among the players.  We also had a special guest from Sri Lanka , Mrs. Rathnaraja (Selvan’s Mother) and her presence contributed a happier environment to the match.

Zarook has taken his captaincy to another level; making necessary strategic decisions at appropriate times.  He has managed to bring necessary tactical changes to the match and coordinated well with the players during the match.  Both seniors and junior players had given Zarook their full support to carry out his successful vision during the match.

The club would like to congratulate the team and there brilliant performance of the team.  Also would like to thank whose who had participated in supporting this very important match.
