BROMSGROVE Cricket Club will be part of the International Police T20 Cricket Carnival, when the tournament gets under way next week.

Bromsgrove hosts eight matches in all, starting with the Rest of the World v New South Wales Police (Australia), and Toronto Police against the Royal Military Police on Monday morning, followed by four matches in the afternoon.

St Godwald’s Road stages two more matches on the final day of action on Friday, before the final gets under way at 3pm.

Avoncroft Cricket Club are also involved and will host Kent Police against Toronto Police.

West Mercia Police Inspector Mark Chappell, who was involved with the organisation of the seventh edition of the event, says the the tournament will be another positive celebration of the sport.

“The international Twenty20 cricket carnival is a brilliant few days for everyone involved, including the spectators,” he said.

“With England’s recent World Cup win in the 50-over format of the game, and the Ashes currently taking place, we hope to see a large number of people come along and support police teams from across the globe.”
