Cricket - BAS XI v Bradman Foundation XI

Cricket – BAS XI v Bradman Foundation XI

21st July 2015
12:00pm to 7:00pm

The Bradman Foundation XI are visiting the UK and will be playing our own “Britain-Australia Society XI” in July.

Eton College has confirmed that our match will be played on Agar’s Plough – the playing field where Wellington reportedly stated “the Battle of Waterloo was won”.

There is no charge for members and their guests – bring along a picnic as availability of catering facilities is scarce at the ground, but there are many opportunities to procure sustenance in Windsor and in Eton.

We are hoping to organise a guided tour of Eton for members and guests during the day.

12:00pm – Players arrive at Eton College
12:30pm – Players’ Lunch served at the pavilion
2pm  – Play commences
4pm  – Tea (change of innings)
7pm  – Stumps
9pm  – Players depart

The format of the match will be

  •  40 overs per innings
  • Maximum number of overs per bowler – 8
  • No fielding restrictions

 

The Society has a confirmed list of 11 players for the game

Travel to Eton by train is to Windsor and Eton Riverside station – direct trains from Waterloo, or Windsor & Eton Central from Paddington, changing at Slough.

Cross the bridge and proceed straight down Eton High Street and you will come to the college after 10-12 minutes.

The ground is on the right hand side behind the college.

Please and further details can be provided.
