Euro Twenty20 moves to Macedonia
The Euro Twenty20 tournament, an invitational event organised by Carmel & District Cricket Club in Wales, is to be held in mainland Europe for the first time in 2010, after the club announced the event will take place in Skopje, the capital of Macedonia, in July.
The hosts will be making their first appearance in international cricket, as will Serbia and Romania. Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Russia and a Wales Cricket Board XI are the other teams taking part.
The tournament will take place from 10 July, with the final taking place a week later. It is hoped that the tournament will take place in mainland Europe again next year, with the event returning to Wales in 2012 in an expanded format, which the club aim to be an officially sanctioned ICC Europe event.
Estonia won the first tournament in 2008, beating the Czech Republic in the final, whilst Flanders won the second tournament last year after a win over the hosts in the final.
