Criiio Cup to be hosted at London’s Trafalgar Square ahead of Men’s Cricket World Cup Final
Six social cricket teams from all corners of the world will come together ahead of the Men’s Cricket World Cup Final for a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate the diversity in which cricket is enjoyed in communities around the world.
Teams from Rwanda, Brazil, Germany, England, Indonesia and India will showcase the power and impact of social cricket playing their own version of cricket in the central London fan park, two days ahead of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Final at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
The competing teams have been selected from around the world based on the impact cricket has had on their communities. They hail from a wide variety of community and social cricket initiatives including women’s empowerment and engagement programs, refugee integration initiatives and semi-professional tennis-ball leagues. While competing for the title of criiio cup champions, the teams will showcase the adaptability of cricket and the different ways it is enjoyed by millions around the world.
criiio has not set rules - each team will devise their own. There will be teams who use bottles for stumps, there will be those who use brooms for bats, and socks with tape round them for balls.
ICC Cricket World Cup Ambassador and Australian cricket icon Steve Waugh will also be there on the day to soak up the atmosphere and meet members from all of the participating teams, in what should be a fantastic celebration of how people play the game in their communities.
