Hanging Heaton will be testing their T20 skills against Yorkshire Vikings. The first All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League side to win the Vitality ECB Club T20 last year will take on the county side in the Dyson Energy Services Challenge Match on Monday, June 24, start 6pm.
The match is being organised by the Bradford & Bingley club who have secured the backing of the league’s former T20 Cup sponsor.
Apart from their international stars Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Adil Rashid, Yorkshire will be selecting from a full-strength squad.
It throws up the possibility of Hanging Heaton’s Ben Kohler-Cadmore coming up against his brother Tom who is one of Yorkshire’s one-day stars.
The match is a reward for Hanging Heaton’s national success and replaces the annual challenge match between a league representative side and Yorkshire Vikings.
Prices will be £2 for adults with accompanied juniors admitted free.
Bradford & Bingley are planning a number of activities to showcase junior cricket on an evening which will mark the opening of their refurbished indoor nets.
Bradford & Bingley official Neil Hartley said: “We are delighted to be staging this match and we want to get youngsters to come and watch the county stars and Hanging Heaton.
“It is an honour to be hosting the county side and we are delighted to have the backing of Dyson Energy Services.
“We are advertising the match in local schools and working hard to promote the match in the community.”
League chairman David Young added: "We were all delighted at Hanging Heaton's national success last year and this match is recognition of that achievement.
"Bradford & Bingley are working hard to ensure the evening is a success and we hope that the pricing will encourage cricket fans from across the league to come and see the match."
