in a few days the German cricket team will depart to Botswana, where this year's edition of the ICC World Cricket League Div. 7 takes place.
Since the ICC has scrapped the WCL Divisions 7 and 8, Germany must achieve promotion to Div. 6 and manage to stay there, otherwise we will disappear from the global cricket landscape.
Preparation has been a little difficult because the event takes place so early in the season and winter is still holding Germany in tight grip with frost and snow. On the other hand many of our players are experienced in the Botswana conditions and we are also familiar with some of our opponents. So a very thrilling tournament should lie ahead of us.

The squad looks as follows:
Asif Khan (capt.), Javed Iqbal, Farooq Ahmed, Milan Fernando, Ehsan Latif, Andre Leslie, Shakeel Hassan, Dilshan Rajudeen, Asad Mohammad, Bilal Jafar, Sohel Mia, Wasantha De Silva, Ajitabh Malviya, Imran Chaudhry
