We would like to thank @france_cricket for organizing such an amazing Series and hosting us in Dreux. Furthermore, we would like to thank the Austrian Cricket Association @cricket_austria and in particular our coach Quinton Norris for his great efforts.
Unfortunately we didn’t win the Series, but we stuck and grew together, fought hard as a team, gained a lot of experience and finally enjoyed cricket again after a long pandemic. Are you also more than excited for Austria’s upcoming games? Then follow us for more updates!
