The next team in our series of introductions of teams participating in the Cricket On Ice Trophy in 2023 are experienced #COIers, German CC.
The German Cricket Club is a representative club for the sport in Germany. Members are former German national players, supporters of the game and young and old who play in the right spirit of the game. Also, many Old Boys from the Lyceum Alpinum are playing in the club. We want to promote continental, but especially German cricket all over Europe. The goal is to get cricket on the list of official school sports.
The German Cricket Club e.V. was founded by Old Boys from the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz and a couple of other cricket enthusiasts from Germany.
The goal is to promote cricket in Germany and German cricket abroad. One of the mid-term targets is to build a Home of German Cricket and most importantly to play with people alike in an atmosphere that is simply enchanting. The GCC played its first tournament in Zuoz in 2018 and already reached the semi-final only to be defeated by the Marylebone CC.
Cricket on Ice will be the club's third appearance with fun-loving international players originating from Germany, Australia, India, Austria, Italy, New Zealand, UK and Switzerland.
The German Cricket Club squad for 2023 has been confirmed as follows:
