Nicknamed the Lions, Czech Republic made their international debut in 2008 and have been playing international cricket regularly ever since - COVID19 permitting.
At 67 in the ICC T20I World Rankings, Czech Republic are the lowest ranked side in Group C, but boast a host of proven performers at international level.
