Getting ready to welcome The Lashings
Published on: 08 Jun 2015
The stars of international cricket to play Downend Cricket Club on Friday June 19 have been announced.
Philip Defreitas, Chris Schofield, Wasim Jaffer, Andrew Hall, Gordon Greenidge, Muhammad Wasim, Adam Hollioake, Corey Collymore, Toni Best, John Emburey and Devon Malcom will face a Downend XI – and traditionally the meeting of these two teams has resulted in thrillingly close scores. In 2014 the Lashings team narrowly beat Downend by 25 runs.
This year’s game starts at 3pm and will follow a T20 format. Members of the public are welcome to watch from around the ground, with fundraising opportunities taking place throughout the game to help support the club.
DCC chairman Mike Richmond said: “The return of the Lashings squad for a fifth year is hugely exciting! This event is so important to our club, both for fundraising and to generate local interest in the quality of cricket that we play. We look forward to seeing members of the community join us for a great day!”
Each season, the Lashings World Tour visits clubs across the country to promote cricket and support local organisations.
Fans will have another chance to see the stars when the Lashings come to Mangotsfield on July 31.
