‘Cricket in the City’ comes to Birmingham
August 5, 2011
Birmingham are to host ‘Cricket in the City’ on the 8 August 2011. The all day free cricket festival will take part in the city centre around Victoria Square.
Edgbaston will be hosting the 3rd npower Test Match against India two days later.
‘Cricket in the City’ is a flagship debut event to engage the public and create a local buzz for the upcoming Test Match.
The England and Wales Cricket Board is looking to create more positive enthusiasm right through to the grassroots level of the sport, even more so with the positive results that English Cricket has produced lately.
Public engagement is very much the name of the game when ‘Cricket in the City’ was decided upon.
