Cricket – Indoor Intervarsity Fixtures Announced
The Irish Universities Cricket Association has published the fixtures for the 2016 Indoor Intervarsity Championships to be held at the University of Ulster, Jordanstown from the 29th to the 31st of January. UCC are not in action until the final game of the opening night’s action where they face rivals UCD. The Dublin side failed to progress from last year’s group stages losing three of their five games but Shahrukh Nawaz and his side will not be taking them lightly, given the importance of starting the group stage with a win.
Saturday morning sees UCC take on indoor specialists NUIG in Hall B in what could be a high-scoring affair given the batting depth in both sides. Following the lunchtime interval, the Leesiders face back to back games in Hall B against IT Sligo and DCU respectively. The group stages conclude on Saturday evening with a clash against RCSI, who will be attempting to improve their record in the Indoor Championships.
Should Shahrukh Nawaz’s squad be successful in getting out of the group stage, they will face a semi-final on Sunday morning before, hopefully, a fourth final in as many years in the afternoon.
