Argentina

Multimar Junior Winter Cup

Will Luke

The highlight of a quiet month for Argentina was the Third Multimar Junior Winter Cup which was played on the first weekend of July. The full details are from the ICC Americas Newsflash:

Unfortunately the weather once again played a major part as the day’s play was brought to an early end. The tournament was once again kindly hosted by St. George’s College. There were four teams from Lomas A.C, Belgrano A.C, St. Alban’s and St.George’s that took part in the event, with each team playing two matches.

All matches were based on 15 overs per side. It was encouraging to note the improvement of many of the players, thanks to these Winter Cups and the coaching clinics held over the past three months. Unfortunately the rain came towards the end of another successful day with both matches still to complete their final innings. The day was completed with some drinks and food for the kids and the group watching a DVD on international cricket. Once again, another successful day and looking good for a busy three months before the 2008/09 season kicks off.

Argentina certainly look like a growing nation in the world of cricket. It is always good to see growth in the popularity of the game over all. I hope to see and hear more from the argentina game in the next few years.

He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
