CS support Scottish Asian Sports Gala T20-2015
For the second year running Cricket Scotland is delighted to support the Scottish Asian Sports Gala T20 day on Sunday 31 May, in association with the charity Ucare.
The main event at Clydesdale CC will feature two high profile cricket matches. The first match will see a Scotland XI take on a Overseas Professionals XI commencing at 10.30am, before the highly competitive second match between Scottish Pakistani's and Scottish Indian's, commencing at 2.30pm.
The Scottish Asian Sports Gala T20 2015 is a free family event consisting of activities for everyone. On the day there will be an outdoor bazaar, pony rides for children, bouncy castles, food stalls.
The colourful event really helps to bring the Scottish communities together through their shared love and passion of cricket.
There will also be a special raffle of two signed bats from the Indian and Pakistan team from the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, with all proceeds being split between grassroots cricket and charity.
Cricket Scotland’s Interim Chief Executive Willie Donald said, “We are absolutely delighted to be supporting the Asian Sports Gala Day. This has proven to be a tremendously successful event in the past, and we are in the very privileged position this year to be able to provide signed bats from each of the India and Pakistan teams from the recent ICC World Cup. These are unique items signed by some of the world’s greatest cricketers, and will be raffled on the day with all proceeds to going to charity or into cricket participation to produce Scotland’s next star.”
With over 1,000 spectators last year, a similar superb atmosphere is expected to be repeated.
