PCC's well-rounded bowling attack never allowed Dresden to gain a foothold in the match, and when Rajh brilliantly ran out the dangerous Siva, the Germans were facing an uphill struggle.
New pitch installation complete!
At the end of 2013 the Executive Committee decided to order two new quality pitches to install at Kriket Vinoř, and with the pleasantly-mild Winter work started early on the first installation.

The first wicket is now ready, and was trialled in the Vinohrady vs Barbarians friendly on April 13th.
The second wicket was completed in August and hosted its first competitive match with the T20 League's third-place playoff between Bohemian CC and Dresden. The quality of the wickets should lead to a much higher standard of play locally!
