Come On Down And Watch England Stars Of The Future For A Tenner

Come On Down And Watch England Stars Of The Future For A Tenner

Come on down to New Road and watch the best of England's budding talent of the future today (Monday) and tomorrow for just a tenner a day.

The England Lions will be in action twice in the space of 24 hours in the conclusion of the group stages of the triangular series with Sri Lanka 'A' and New Zealand 'A'.

The Lions will tackle Sri Lanka today in the 50 over encounter and then the Black Caps tomorrow.

It is a prospect to saviour given the awesome hitting power that will be on display via the likes of Alex Hales, Ravi Bopara, Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow and the fearsome pace bowling of Steven Finn.

Hales had a loan spell at New Road earlier in the season from Nottinghamshire whilst county followers will remember the hitting power of Roy in the NatWest T20 Blast quarter-final between Surrey and Worcestershire at the Kia Oval nine days ago.

New Road also has happy memories for Finn who took 14 wickets in a Championship match on the ground for Middlesex in April 2010 including a career best 9-37 although Worcestershire did win the match.

There will be a Worcestershire connection in Tuesday's clash with Colin Munro being part of the New Zealand squad.

He was with Worcestershire for the entire T20 Blast campaign and finished as their second highest scorer in the competition behind skipper Daryl Mitchell.

Adults will be charged £10 and it is only £5 for juniors.

It is a busy week of cricket at New Road with Worcestershire playing host to Gloucestershire in the Royal London One-Day Cup on Wednesday and starting an LV = County Championship match against the same opponents on Friday.
