Sri Lanka A Game Moved To Worcester School

Following more rain in Worcester, the decision has been taken to move the Sri Lanka A tour match from New Road to the Royal Grammar School.

The one-day match will take place tomorrow (Saturday, July 14th) and will start at 10.45 am.

Sri Lanka A, who got their tour of England off to a winning start against the MCC in a match that concluded yesterday, play a number of counties and India and are captained by Thilan Samaraweera.

Worcestershire Chief Executive Mark Newton explained, "The Royal Grammar School has kindly donated the use of their high quality playing facilities so that the game can go ahead and provide both Sri Lanka 'A' and Worcestershire with some much needed cricket. We are most grateful given the short notice. The weather forecast for the day is good and we look forward to some high class cricket in lovely surroundings."
