Former West Indies Test cricket stars Courtney Walsh and Gordon Greenidge will be in Bristol this summer to play on the historic WG Grace Memorial Ground.
The match on July 12 will see a Downend XI once again play the Lashings World Tour XI, as it visits clubs across the country to promote cricket and support local clubs.
The 2012 campaign kicks off on May 25 with a further 34 fixtures throughout the summer.
Alongside the West Indies stars are Pakistani spinner Saqlain Mushtaq and Zimbabwe’s Henry Olonga.
About 2,000 spectators watched the 2011 match, which the Lashings squad won by 49 runs. Entry to public spectators is free, with fundraising for the club taking place throughout the game.
Downend Chairman Mike Richmond said: “The 2011 match was a great day for both club and community. Our players and spectators had the honour of experiencing international cricket on their doorstep.
“We are thrilled to have the Lashings World Tour return this year – and we hope the 2012 match will be an even closer result.”
Tickets are now on sale for hospitality at the event. Hospitality guests will enjoy a champagne breakfast and three-course lunch. Interested parties should visit www.downendcricket.co.uk, call 0117 927 6614 or email email@example.com.
