Young Lancashire side to take on Oman National team
A combined Lancashire Second XI/Academy team will take on the Oman National side on Monday 5 August in a 50-over friendly at Emirates Old Trafford.
Following on from the Academy’s successful pre-season tour of Muscat in February 2018, Oman will face a young Lancashire side as part of their UK tour this summer.
They are preparing for a ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 tri-series against Scotland and Papua New Guinea later the same month, which serves as part of the qualification process for the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup in India.
The match starts at 11am and entry is free.
Lancashire’s Director of Cricket, Paul Allott, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed a training camp out in Oman last year with the Academy. The facilities were excellent and it was a great opportunity for some of our Academy players to experience different cricketing conditions.
“As part of the Academy going out to Muscat last year, we agreed to a fixture against their National side at Emirates Old Trafford. It’s more match practice for some of our young players and we’re looking forward to welcoming the Oman side to Manchester.”
Oman will also take on Lancashire U19s on Thursday 1 August at Urmston Cricket Club as well as a League Select XI at Middleton Cricket Club on Thursday 8 August. Both are one-day (50 over) fixtures starting at 11am.
