Marylebone Cricket Club is set to stage a series of matches this summer against a National Asian Cricket Council XI, and Belhus Cricket Club will be hosting the curtain-raiser of the series on Wednesday 27th June.
The 10-match programme across the UK forms part of the MCC’s strategy for deepening its engagement with players from a South Asian background and supports the recently announced wide-ranging action plan of the England & Wales Cricket Board to draw more players from South Asian backgrounds into cricket.
The Belhus CC ground is at North Stifford Village Green, High Road, North Stifford, Grays, Essex RM16 5UG and their clubhouse bar will be open throughout the day. The match starts at 11:30am and spectators are very welcome. Entry is free of charge.
