Indoor Cricket World Cup 2011

 

The Indoor Cricket World Cup is a biennial event and took place from October 9-15 in South Africa this year. It featured teams from Australia, South Africa, England, New Zealand, Wales, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, France, Guernsey and U.A.E.


Australia’s Indoor World Cup teams emerged victorious after a clean sweep of the Indoor Cricket World Cup event’s four divisions – Men’s, Women’s, and 19 and Under Boys  and 19 and Under Girls.

The Australian ‘Extreme’ Men’s team recorded its eighth consecutive World Cup by defeating South Africa 94 to 55, ensuring the World Cup trophy remains in Australia, as it has since the tournament’s inception.

The Australian ‘Extreme’ Women’s side matched the efforts of their male counterparts, defeating South Africa 66 to 33 before the junior sides capped the four-trophy effort.

The 19 and Under Boys comprehensively defeated tournament hosts South Africa 144 to 44 and the 19 and Under Girls confirmed the clean sweep with a 120 to 74 victory over traditional rivals England.
