2022 cricket season kicked off in Switzerland with an Indoor Women’s Cricket Tournament with Basel Supernovas-2 emerging as first winners of Dreiländer Cup.

Cricket Switzerland and Junior Chamber International (JCI), Basel jointly co-hosted an Indoor Women’s Cricket Tournament Dreiländer Cup 2022 in Arlesheim, Basel Land. There were four participating teams :

  1. Basel Supernovas I
  2. Basel Supernovas II
  3. Cricket Club Wettingen – Ladies
  4. Cossonay Cricket Club – Ladies

All teams played against each other in a round robin fashion. After all the league matches, all three teams Basel SuperNovas I, Basel SuperNovas II and Cricket Club Wettingen all ended up in the same points by winning two matches each. The last league match between Basel Super Novas I and Cricket Club Wettingen was a thriller with both the teams desperately wanted a win to stay in the hunt for the finals ad Cricket Club Wettingen won the last league match.

Super Bowl was used to determine the two teams for the finals. In the Super Bowl, Cricket Club Wettingen and Basel Super Novas II qualified for the finals. Basel Super Novas II held their nerves in the finals against Cricket Club Wettingen, clinched the Dreiländer Cup 2022 and emerged as Champions. Basel SuperNovas 1 won the third place match against Cossonay Cricket Club.

JCI Basel take this opportunity to thank Cricket Switzerland for all their great help, support and cooperation for conducting the Dreiländer Cup successfully. It was a great day of Cricket with various members of the team exhibiting their skills, determination and hard work during the matches.
