Season 2022 Match Reports:

CSNL Quarter Finals

St:Gallen CC vs. Zug CC 

What should not have happened, happened. But this is a sport and things can always turn out differently than you hope. A lot of things came together that led to us losing the quarter-final match.
We were on a very good way in the first innings. All out in 21.5 overs.  
Then came the second innings. Pio didn't even get into the flow properly when there was a run-out. Shortly after, the same thing happened to Amal. The wickets were just pouring in until suddenly Dylan was down, the ball hit him right on the nose and he had to leave the field. He received emergency treatment and in the meantime, the action on the field continued. The batters tried to score runs, we had enough time and enough overs left to take it easy. But the wickets kept coming, Dylan went in again at the end, but unfortunately it was over after one ball.
We could have done it, but St. Gallen were simply stronger in this game.

''Two teams at two ends of the table in Pool 2 met at Basel. Zug CC having already qualified

for the playoffs went in to finish the league round as the table topper. While Novartis CC with

no wins so far in the league went in to register a consolation win to salvage their season.

Novartis CC won the toss and elected to bat first. Jasi and Sahan opened the bowling for

Zug CC and bowled together a spell of shear pace pushing Novartis CC on the back foot.

Sahan drew the first blood in the 4th over by dismissing Liyo. Gopi stabilized the situation

and took the score to 81/3 in 28 overs with two small partnerships. But from the 29th over the

downslide began with wickets falling regularly. Amal and Sahan took two wickets each in

consecutive overs, bringing Novartis CC innings in complete disarray. Sahan finished

with career-best figures of 4/31 and came close to taking a hattrick. The last 7 wickets fell in

a space of 45 runs. Gopi fought really hard to keep the Novartis CC innings going together,

got out as the last wicket having opened the innings. Gopi finished with 43 runs (117 balls)

and hit 3 boundaries.

Chasing a low target can be tricky and it was proved during the match with Pio, Deepak and

Amal, getting dismissed in 10s after getting settled in the middle. With the score at 53-3, Zug

CC got another shock when 2 wickets fell quickly and at that stage, the score was 63/5 in the

14th over. With half the side back to the pavilion, the small target looked too far to reach.

Having pulled his hamstring while keeping in the first innings, Dylan played a mature inning

fighting through the pain, well supported by Jasi with a partnership of 36 runs. After the fall of

Jasi’s wicket, Anubhav walked in and with his usual sense of innings build up quickly got the

target down. With only another 12 runs needed to win, Dylan was dismissed at 23 runs (34

balls) which was the highest score for Zug CC innings. Zug CC won the game with 3 wickets

in hand and 12 overs to spare.

Zug CC finished the league round as “Invincible” in Pool 2, winning 5 out of 5 matches

and became the first team in CSNL to qualify for the Quarter Finals.''

Match: Zug CC vs Aargau CC- Hedingen, 10-07-2022

''A table-top header from Pool 2 in CSNL between Zug CC (1) and Aargau CC (2) was played

at Hedingen. Zug CC won the toss and elected to bat first. Zug CC had 5 changes in the first

team with many players being unavailable for selection. Aargau stuck an early blow,

dismissing Amal for 0 on the last ball of the very 1 st over. With his high standards, this was

the first time Amal returned to the pavilion without opening his account. Durga and Pascha

made the ball “doing the talking”, they were moving it both ways at a very decent pace. Pio

and Deepak tried to steady the ship with the ball swinging a lot in the early overs. They put

up together a partnership of 50 runs (63 balls), before Deepak was bowled out having

missed a googly from Naveen S. Irshad had an aggressive start to the inning helping to bring

the run rate up with a couple of cut shots over the point region and 3 huge sixes. Irshad

finished the innings with 41 runs (27 balls) and a strike rate of 152, after a dubious decision

of having given LBW with the ball clearly hitting the bat. Pio was the only one from both the

teams who could cross the 50 runs mark of the match, finished with 3 fours and 4 sixes. With

wickets falling in quick succession and the score lingering on 146-5, Sahaan had a different role

to play against his natural instincts. He managed to bat through and stick around to take the

team score close to 200. Ushara and Nikson added a valuable 15 runs partnership for the

10th wicket, with Ushara playing two late cuts sending the ball to the boundary line. Zug CC

was bowled out for 210, thereby giving a bonus point to Aargau CC. Pace duo of Durga and

Pascha clinched 6 wickets for Aargau CC.

Chasing an average total of 210, Aargau CC made a very good start to the innings, putting

up 26 runs off the first 4 overs. Having missed with the bat, Anubhav picked up the first

wicket for Zug CC with a brilliant effort from Amal running backwards and having to jump at

the end to complete the catch. After a good start, wickets kept falling at regular intervals for

Aargau CC. Ansh played an anchor innings of 33 runs (77 balls) which kept Aargau in the

game, unfortunately getting run out with the score at 142/8. Pascha being at the crease when

the 9 th wicket fell down, Aargau needed 46 runs off 31 balls to win the match. Pascha played

a blinder with hard hitting to bring the target close to 17 runs off 12 balls. With a couple of

more hits from Pascha the game could have turned in the favor of Aargau. In the

penultimate over, Pascha played a good shot off the ground and immediately called for two

to retain the strike, unfortunately, his partner was not on the same wavelength. The throw

from Pio did not come right on the stumps, but Anubhav managed to jump and take the bails

off before the non-striker could make his ground. Pascha finished with a valiant effort of 40

runs off 23 balls, remaining not out at the end of the innings. Anubhav and Amal were the

peak of the bowlers for Zug CC, picking up 3 wickets each.

Zug CC won the match by 14 runs and claimed a bonus point as well for having bowled out

Aargau CC. Zug CC continued to stay at the top of the table in the Pool 2. With several

players missing for Zug CC, it was expected to be a close encounter with Aargau CC and the

game certainly did span out in the same way. Aargau CC was so close to pulling off a heist,

yet by the end Zug CC kept the nerves and made it too far Aargau CC to get over the line.''

Match: Zug CC vs CVZ- Hedingen, 19-06-2022

"It was a very hot Sunday when the two local teams from Zug went head-to-head in CSNL.

Zug CC, one of the oldest cricket clubs in Switzerland met with CVZ newest promising team entering the Swiss Cricket Association. CVZ won the toss and elected to bat first. Zug CC got to a

very good start with Anubhav taking a wicket off the very first over, followed by 2 maiden

overs by Sahan in the first 6 overs. Ankush being the highest scorer in the first innings with

38 (55), was run out in a mix-up with good thinking and a brilliant throw by Irshad. With wickets tumbling in regular intervals, CVZ were bowled out for 134 in 26.3 overs. The trio pace attack of Anubhav (2), Sahaan (1) and Jasi (3) ended up with a combined figure of 15.3 overs, 6

wickets at an economy of 3.87 per over.

Zug CC got off to a flyer with the openers Amal and Pio putting up 66 runs in 10 overs. Just

as the weather, things got hotter in the 8 th over when Ankush hit a well-directed short ball into

his abdomen of Amal followed by a heated discussion between the two. Amal had the last

laugh though dispatching 2 big sixes and 2 fours to end the over, with 22 runs coming off the

8 th over. Amal finished with 48 (36) and Pio with 33 (37) with the game very much under

control. With the license to go, Ayush and Deepak brought the game closer with a

partnership of 25 runs off 13 balls. With 1 run to go there was a bit of drama, with both the

set batsman getting out. But, at the end it was a formality for Anubhav to hit the winning runs

and finish the game off in 16.2 overs moving on to the top of the table in Pool 2. It was a

game of high energies shown by both the teams, but at the end Zug CC was too hot to

handle for CVZ."

Great news

We finally have a Home Ground

The search for a sports field began in the season 2020 and was focused on the city of Zug, obviously, since our name is Zug Cricket Club. After a few e-mails, we got the option to play our sport on the athletics track in Zug. Other venues were completely booked. Unfortunately, the size of the inner circle is too small and extending the pitch to the tartan track would cause too much risk of injury.

In February 2021, the search continued. Google Maps was searched for several hours, all soccer grounds and sports fields in the catchment area of the club members were noted. All potential communities were contacted. Unfortunately, we received one rejection after the other. Nearby places were also driven to and inspected. 
To our surprise, we received a positive answer with further questions. With persuasion and assurances of taking care of the ground, we received a confirmation to use it.

Now there was nothing standing in the way of planning a training game and presenting the new pitch to the whole club. We started the day with somewhat cool but beautiful weather. The fog lifted and warm sunshine accompanied us throughout the day at the internal club match.

At the end of the day we presented a few trophies: Best Batsman to Amal, Best Bowler to Michael and President`s Trophy to Pio.

"What a great win Zug CC…!

So proud of my team.

After wining the toss, we decided to bowl first, even though the ground and the wicket was very wet.

I had faith in my bowlers, I wanted my bowlers to keep Cern CC under 150, But Cern managed to make 164/10. our Bowling department did a fantastic job.

Well, even though 164 was a very gettable total, Amal and I struggled to score runs off Cern’s opening bowlers, the two opening bowlers were fantastic. Even though the score board ticked very slow, we decided to keep calm until the 20th over. Even though it was very slow approach, Zug CC managed to finish the game quite comfortably at the 28th over.

So proud of my team.

Let’s keep this spirit boys. " Pio de silva, Zug CC Captain

Zug CC won by 13 runs.

"Another big win for the Zug boys. So proud of my team mates.

Again a fantastic half century by our Run Machine Amal, and a quick firing Half Century by Ayush. Together they posted a Fantastic opening partnership of 108 runs, which helped us reach the 194 mark in 20 overs.

Great bowling performances by Irshad, Chamith, Mike and Amal….

The team spirit was extremely high, maybe this will show some people that ‘TEAM SPIRIT’ really exists among the members of Zug CC…!

Thank you so so much Zurich Lions, and the umpires Nasir and Abbas for your patience, they stayed under an umbrella for over 4 hours till the weather gave us a playable condition RESPECT.

“Let’s keep going Zug Boys..!"

Pio De Silva, Zug CC Captain
