‘Summer of Cricket’ parliamentary reception:

As a keen cricketer myself, I was excited to go along to a parliamentary reception to celebrate the forthcoming bumper ‘Summer of Cricket’. The upcoming schedule includes the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019; the Men’s and Women’s Ashes 2019; and an ambitious new strategy to grow cricket at the grassroots level. It was very nice to celebrate the upcoming events which are hugely significant sporting occasions on the UK and global calendar, whilst meeting representatives of our Men’s team, the Women’s team and those who are helping to stage the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 - a huge logistical operation. A great event, and I wish everyone involved the best of luck this summer - particularly the England teams!
