Month: May 2020

Kölsch ‘n Cricket evenings started in Bocklemünd

Despite the shortened season we kick-started a regular cricket social event on May 29th with our first Kölsch ‘n Cricket evening. To qualify for this, you just need to show up – no prior knowledge or skills needed, and no age limits! It was nice to see some CICC alumni show up and even pit their wits against Betty, the fearsome bowling beast.

Was that a sweep or a scoop, Monika?

Spring clean and nets preparation

The lockdown has put paid to our early training plans, but some dry weather has given us a chance to tidy up the kit and mark up the training net with bowling and batting creases.
