Italian Cricket Federation finals
Italy isn't yet a hotbed of cricketing talent, but that hasn't stopped the annual Italian Cricket Federation finals taking place, as reported by the ECC:
Pianoro CC set the stage for the annual Italian Cricket Federation (FCrI) age group finals over the weekend of the 7th and 8th October 2006. Five 8-a-side teams from the U13 age group, together with numerous FCrI club officials gathered at the cricket club, situated just outside of Bologna.
The U13 competition was won by Bologna CC who, having established a core of talent from the local Bangladesh community, were the strongest team on show, forcing Capannelle CC into second place on this occasion. The tournament was held in tandem with an FCrI teachers and club players introductory course.
