PUBLISHED: 09:52 25 May 2018




International cricket stars representing the Lashings World XI will be at Weston on Sunday.

Weston will play host a team full of international cricket stars this Sunday at Devonshire Road when they play the famous Lashings World XI.

After hosting Somerset in a benefit match last year, this year’s marquee game at the club sees the first team take on players such as Ashes winning fast bowler Chris Tremlett, Indian batting legend Wasim Jaffer, and former Somerset favourite Andy Caddick.

The special guest for the day will be cult hero England spin bowler Monty Panesar, who will provide commentary and entertainment for the marquee guests during the day, telling stories of his career which included 167 test match wickets, winning games for England against Australia in the Ashes and away in India.

The full Lashings team is: Wasim Jaffer; Usman Afzaal (former England test player); Andrew Hall (former South African international player); Chris Lewis (played for England in the 1992 World Cup); Martin Bicknell (ex-England and Surrey seam bowler); Jack Richards (wicket keeper for England during their successful Ashes campaign in Australia in 1986/87); Yasir Arafat (seventh highest T20 wicket taker of all time); Chris Tremlett ; Andy Caddick; Charl Willoughby (Weston and Somerset legend); Devon Malcolm (best test figures of 9-57 for England).

Tickets for the day are available on the gate, prices £3 for adults and free for Under-16s, with entry from midday. The game coincides with the club’s annual beer and cider festival, which takes place all weekend.

There will be more than 30 ales and ciders to try and entry to this is included in the price of your ticket on the Sunday and is free to enter on the Saturday during the 1st XI game.
