The First Fusion T20 Cricket Cup will be held in Shanghai at the Shanghai Community Sports Club ground during the Dragon Boat Festival from June 7–9, 2019.
Cricket is developing at good pace in mainland China, and notwithstanding the heritage of club like Shanghai which was originally founded in 1858, most of the teams involved are quite new to the cricketing scene. The time is ripe however for cooperation and competition between these fledgling gladiators from further afield. Each team will head to the contest with great excitement and high hopes.
The tournament features eight team with players from 10 different countries representing six cities:
|Group A||Group B|
|Shanghai Dragons||Shanghai Pirates|
|Shenzhen Cricket Club||Hangzhou Cricket Club|
|Yunnan Cricket Club||Hong Kong Asia XI|
|Beijing Cricket Club||Shanghai Hengfeng Cricket Club|
The format for the three-day T20 contest will be two groups of four followed by semi-finals and a final. The matches will take place at the Shanghai Community Sports Club ground, located at the northeast of the city. SCSC is home for SCC where they play SCC League matches.
The main purpose of this competition is to raise cricket as a sport and attract more and more local athletes. The local Chinese club in Shanghai will also send representatives to participate in the competition, which is a great encouragement for the Shanghai Cricket Club and other participating teams. With many honors, competition for player awards and attention from the Chinese cricket world, all teams and players have a responsibility to do their best to create a truly memorable T20 Cricket Cup.
