Old Basing to face former test stars as Lashings visit north Hampshire
OLD Basing Cricket Club will host the Lashings All Stars tomorrow afternoon in what should be great day in the history of the village club, which is nearly 200 years old.
The Lashings side will feature a whole host of former Test stars, including the likes of England’s Phil DeFreitas and Devon Malcolm, and they will play Old Basing in a 35-over-a-side match that starts at the Recreation Ground at 2.30pm.
It is sure to be an entertaining encounter and there will also be the chance to meet the players and get autographs.
Dan Belcher is the Old Basing captain for the game. He is really looking forward to it and said: “It is the biggest game in the club’s history and a big day out for the village.
“Everyone is really looking forward to it. I am sure there will be a big crowd and we will do our best to put on a good show.
“It is amazing to get the chance to play against these players who until now we have only had the chance to watch.”
The club are making it not just a cricket match, but a great event for all the family and there will be plenty going on at the ground.
At noon there will be a colts game, while refreshments will be provided by a beer tent and there will also be a barbecue and hog roast.
