You may remember that the annual match between Abu Dhabi’s English and Australian cricketers was scheduled for last March, but had to be postponed because of the storm that hit Abu Dhabi a couple of days before.
We have a new date for this illustrious fixture – Friday 21st October. As usual it will be played in the beautiful surroundings of Emirates Palace. Anyone is welcome to come and watch. Entry is free, and they can bring their own food and drinks (but no barbecues.) The match starts at 10.30am and will finish around 5pm.
Bell Pottinger originally sponsored the match in 2013 and the English team notched up a comfortable victory. The following year, the Australians came back strongly and emerged victorious in a tight encounter. The English will obviously be doing their best to regain the Abu Ashes this time around and regain the lead in the series.
