MCC tour the Island this week

The MCC start their annual tour this week with fixtures against the Island Seniors, Under-21s and King William’s College.

Also, following last year’s success and huge impact of the MCC coaching, cricket master-classes have been arranged across the Island.

They will deliver coaching to over 450 children, mainly school years three and four as well as the Island's ladies and junior teams.

The Island games, which are sponsored by Isle of Man Bank, begin on Wednesday with the Under-21s in action.

On Thursday there is a special event at Ballafletcher.

The Island senior side will play the MCC in a Twenty20 game (coloured clothing), to be followed by a barbeque.

This should be key to developing the squad for their ICC T20 tournament in Greece later in the year.

On Friday the two sides meet again at Tromode in a Pro40 match which starts at midday.

The Isle of Man team for the T20 is – Gareth Morris, Garreth Roome, Mark Williams (Castletown), Max Stokoe, Dan Hawke, Alex Stokoe (Cronkbourne), Chris Hawke (St John’s), Phil Littlejohns, Russell Miller (Peel), Ross Berry, Danny Kniveton (Crosby)

The Island team for Friday is:- Ollie Webster (Ramsey), Mark Williams, Seb Aycock (Castletown). Max Stokoe, Matt Ansell, Adam McAuley, Gareth Dawson, Carl Wagstaffe (Cronkbourne), Danny Kniveton (Crosby), Greg Hawke, Akki van der Berg (St John’s).
