2011 2012 Indoor league





2011 2012 Indoor league 

The 2011/ 2012 Indoor league has now been completed. Empire 1 finished 5th, though we were in with a shout for 2nd until the last two matches and Empire 2 finishing in a really respectable 7th, which no one even ourselves expected. Bengal Tigers put what I can imagine was a disappointing summer season to win the competition for the first time, finishing with the same record as FPC, but winning on bonus points. We are proud to say, if it wasn't for Empire 1 and some heroics from Nitin, Vantaa would have been champions, as we accounted for the loss that dropped them out of contention and that not includes the FPC match where we were a missed run out on the final ball short to winning. It was a great winter, with a large number of Empire debuts. But now it is time for summer and the outdoor season.  

Empire CC 2011/2012 debuts:
1. Baba Ali - Empire 2
2. Kachan Gupta - Empire 1
3. Bipin Khoda - Empire 1
4. Shishir Pant - Empire 1
5. Vinod Sundarajan - Empire 2
6. Abdul Ghafar - Empire 2
7. Jani Yliviuhkola - Empire 2

Welcome all new recruits.


                                        
Tournament format

There were 11 teams participating in the competition, competing in one group. Empire entered two teams this year, namely Empire 1 and Empire 2. Due to the number of teams participating, the FCA elected to organize the competition in a round robin league format with all teams playing each other once.  The team that finished first after their 10 will be the indoor league champion.

Empire teams
Empire has entered two teams in the competition this year and will be hoping that both teams will go for the championship, but most of all have fun and develop our cricketing skills. 
Here is the line-up for both squads. Unfortunately, once the lists are in, you cannot change from one squad to the other.
