Scorer Virr's busy international schedule

Scorer Virr's busy international schedule

9 May 2019

Former Hanging Heaton scorer and league secretary John Virr is looking forward to a busy summer on international duty.

Virr is set to score at Emerald Headingley in three World Cup games, the One-Day international between England and Pakistan and the England v Australia Ashes Test.

The regular Yorkshire second team scorer will need to swat up on his Asian cricketers. His three World Cup assignments are Pakistan v Afghanistan  (June 29), Afghanistan v West Indies (July 4), and Sri Lanka v India (July 6).

His programme of internationals kicks off with the England v Pakistan One-Dayer on May 19 and the undoubted highlight will be the five days of the England v Australia Test which starts on

August 22.
