With a mixture of 50 over and T20 cricket being played at the tournament it gave a great insight of European cricket for many of those who have not come across it before.

The Audi team were not shy getting involved and joined ICC Europe's and the countries in a fun cricket activity with different skills and fitness, which included batting, fielding and bowling as they gave some of the Danish locals a taste of the game.
