Britannia wins! Sing(h) it from the rooftops

When the opposition batsman says he hasn’t even experienced weather like this in Pakistan, then it really is saying something. When you come from the north of England and are keeping in a helmet, gloves and pads, my initial instinct would be to throw back some insult, but it would have been too much effort. […]

It’s the hope that kills you…

It is just after 4 o’clock in the green and pleasant surroundings of Brandenburg. The scores are tied, with HCCW needing just one run with plenty of overs and three wickets in hand. As expected, the HCCW skipper goes for glory. He gets a massive bottom edge and the ball spoons up to midwicket. The […]

Onwards and upwards…

So here we are again. After an off-season that passed mercifully quickly and some great sessions indoors, Britannia are back on the field hoping to follow on from last season’s successes with some long-awaited silverware.

A fond farewell to the skipper

Playing a sport dominated by ex-pat players means that teams change from season to season. Students come to the bright lights of Berlin and leave shortly afterwards with plenty of stories in their suitcases. From Mumbai to Melbourne and from London to Lahore, ex-players from this wonderful club can look back on their time in […]

Same, same…but different!

Cricket – A dull and pedestrian sport where eleven men stand doing nothing for two hours looking like they should be waiting tables on a cruise ship. Well, if there are any people in Berlin or the surrounding area who think like this, then get them front-row tickets for next season when BSV II play […]
