Loughborough to host England vs. Bangladesh fixture

Loughborough University is to host a second international cricket fixture this July when England Under-19s take on a Bangladesh A side (6-8 July).

The game is the Bangladeshis’ first in the country as part of an eight-match tour in July and August and is also the first time England Under-19s have had the chance to play a touring A side.

The match is a precursor to the Under-19 Test series with New Zealand later this summer when England play the young Black Caps in two youth Tests at Taunton and New Road, before five one-day internationals.

The fixture takes place on the University’s Haslegrave pitch from 11am each day.
One week later England women take on the West Indies in back-to-back One Day International fixtures (11-12 July).
