Indoor Cricket was one of the 22 sports that saw Finnish Champions crowned at during the SM-viikko multisport event at Tampereen over February 12-14, 2016. Victory in Saturday evening's televised championship final went to Stadin krikettikerho (SKK) from Helsinki. The Finnish capital also bagged the silver medals, as Helsinki Cricket Club (HCC) were the losing finalists, while the bronze stayed in Tampere as Tampere CC beat FinnAsia CC from Turku in the bronze match.
The full results as well as Twitter pics from the event are available on the SMviikko page. You can also watch the final again here (only available in Finland).
The chairman of Finn-Asia Cricket Association, Pasi Kankaanpää, has been elected to the Turku sports parliament, which is an expert panel of the city, representing the 300 sports associations and their 60.000 members in Turku. Proper management and close collaboration with the Turku sports officials resulted in the election, made by Turku's sport associations last month. Membership in the parliament is a big responsibility, and an indication that cricket and Finn-Asia are taken seriously in Turku. This is another small but positive achievement for cricket in Finland, and opens new possibilities for collaboration within various areas of sports.
Congratulations to Pasi, may this be the first of many such positions for Finnish Cricket!
