Geneva International CC (GICC) set a new record of 409-6 as Highest Winning Team Scores in Cricket Switzerland Premier League on 24 July 2016 in a glorious victory vs Cern CC.
Records tumbled as GICC hosted Cern at Bout Du Monde Stadium. On a sunny day GICC Captain Habib Choudhury won the toss and elected to bat first. Leo and Balihar opened the innings and were given instructions to loosen their arms and play the "aramsai aggressive" mantra style of play. The pair did not disappoint with some excellent shot making against the new ball, the first wicket partnership of 67 set the platform well. Cern introduced their experienced bowler C. Onions(3-47-8) to steady the ship. Some disciplined bowling followed claiming the wickets of both openers. Balihar caught on the boundary for 20 and Leo bowled on 40. The batting strength of GICC showed through though as charismatic batsmen Balaji arrived at the crease accompanied by Habib and they stemmed the flow of wickets. Habib succumbed to the ever persistent Onions snicking one behind on 29. Amar came in for a quickfire 21 seeing off Onions final over before a moment of confusion saw him run out. This seemed to be a tactical sacrifice having seen off Onions bowling spells, in stepped Sanket "the sixer" Pithadia. Balaji kept the runs flowing with some signature classic shot making whilst Sanket settled himself. Balaji was unfortunate to be out on 76 after pulling a short delivery directly to square leg to the bowling of Phani (2-63-6). 

What followed next was a brutal assault on the Cern bowlers. Not in the mood for singles in a glorious sunny day, Sanket made it rain sixes as he unleashed his hay maker SS ton bat to dispatch the ball effortlessly. After reaching his maiden 50 off only 23 balls it was becoming clear which way he was heading. He needed only another 15 balls to reach 100 as GICC placed fielders in the forest in expectation of more crushing sixes. Some loose bowling by Cern followed as they bowled numerous wides in a vain attempt to contain the uncontainable Sanket who finished on 166 not out off 53 balls with 21 massive sixes, supported by Vignesh & Sikkander rotating the strike at the death. GICC finished with a Goliath total of 409-6.

Lunch eaten, GICC took to the field. Vignesh took the new ball and made an early breakthrough in the first over with Cern batsmen John out for a duck snicking one caught behind by Balihar. GICC confidence was brimming now. However Cern were down but not out. Paul & Chris commenced an aggressive chase of runs accumulating boundaries and scoring at an exceptional rate. At 50-1 after 5 overs a change of bowling brought the breakthrough, Habib taking the wicket of danger man Paul caught in slips by Vivian for 35. This brought Cern skipper Matthew to the crease and at 109-2 off 10 Cern was ahead of the run rate. Matthew continued the aggressive batting with some big shots backed up by Chris and the partnership was looking dangerous. Habib eventually frustrated Chris who nicked one behind on 49 to Balihar behind the stumps who caught everything that came his way. The breakthrough was made however danger man Matthew was still at the crease at drinks. 

GICC were rejuvenated after drinks assisted by the 11 man search party finding the new ball lost in the forest in the 4th over of the game. This enabled Habib to pin down Matthew with the in swinging deliveries and eventually forcing the wicket with a snick behind on 56. GICC were on the rise and spinner Balaji was introduced to the attack to force the wickets of the new batsmen. Balaji delivered with the wicket of the Claston. This was shortly followed by a double wicket maiden prompting the skipper to take him out of the attack! Showing strength and depth Dilbag and Sikkander finished the job off professionally with Cern all out for 180. Balaji 3-23-4 and Habib 3-44-8. A good attempt by Cern but the consistent bowling saw GICC ease home in the end. No doubts as to the man of the match Sanket Super Sixes Pithadia.
