“An outstanding event”

The finals were the culmination of another great tournament where a record 40 teams travelled from across New Zealand to congregate in Christchurch for the first time since 2009.

ICNZ Executive Mark Cini was elated with the running of the event, the quality of the teams on display and the general support that all teams garnered during the tournament. “It was an outstanding event. It was run very well at two great venues in Howzat Indoor Sports Riccarton and Action Indoor Sports Hornby, and it was our pleasure to host teams in Christchurch for the first time in almost ten years”, said Cini. He continued “the quality on display was excellent – that couldn’t have been more evident in the premier men’s final which had to go to a second abbreviated match to decide a winner from two sides who couldn’t be separated. The crowd support for that match was fantastic and really showed indoor cricket in New Zealand in a very positive light”.

“I would like to thank the players, coaches and travelling parents that attended the tournament here. I would also like to thank the umpires team led by Wayne Robertson who did a superb job, with almost all matches being adjudicated by non-playing umpires”, Cini exclaimed. “We have hosted two successful events this year and now we are under two weeks away from the big Junior World Series tournament. We are really looking forward to hosting teams from overseas and our focus will be geared on this event starting at the end of September”.
