After a weekend of training at Kuortane Olympic Training Center , a new-look Finnish National Team has been unveiled. Wicketkeeper-cum-captain Jonathan Scamans resigned the captaincy due to personal reasons in February and Zahidullah 'Nicky' Kamal has now been appointed captain in his stead.
'It's a great pleasure and an honour to represent my country not just as a cricket player but as the team captain. I hope I can lead the team with honour and set an example for my teammates,' Nicky Kamal said after he was appointed.
'Being able to train at Kuortane is great. Not only are the facilities excellent for improving our skills, but spending time together also allows us to bond as individuals and as a team. The programme during the training camp last weekend was action-packed but very rewarding.'
Nicky says he enjoyed the training: 'It has given me a chance to try my wings as team leader. One thing I've worked on is giving and getting feedback and trying to be constructive.'

Communication with member clubs from latest 31.01.2015 onwards
Due to continuous problems in ensuring that the FCA information reaches all member clubs, the FCA Board has decided that starting 2015 general information to members will no longer be sent the personal email addresses of club representatives. This issue was met with approval at the recent Club Development Forum.
In the future all general information (for example announcements of rules, invitations to events or meetings etc) will only be sent to club "generic email addresses". A generic email address is of the type "lahtiCC@gmail.com” or “PoriCCcontact@hotmail.com”. Some of the member clubs already have this kind of generic email and they do not need to create a new one; for these clubs please just re-confirm the generic email for general contact that will continue to be used.
