A CRICKET match with a difference will take place in a picturesque corner of West Yorkshire this week on the eve of the Yorkshire Motorsport Festival.

With a selection of classic Bentleys parked around the boundary edge at Upperthong Cricket Club near Holmfirth, batsmen will be aiming to hit a six straight through the windscreen of one of the iconic vehicles.

The owner of the first Bentley to get a cricket ball through its windscreen will donate £250 to charity.

The T20 game will take place at 4.30pm on Thursday, June 24, with the ground conveniently located less than a mile from the Wolfstones Hill Climb, where the festival's closed-road competitive action will play out over the following three days.

The Bentleys will be provided by the Benjafield’s Racing Club, with members of the club taking part in the special match before racing in the festival a day later.

The cricket club’s bar will be open from 3.30pm and there will be a barbecue and other hot food options.

Entry to the match is free but capacity may be restricted due to social distancing requirements.

Speaking of the game's unique appeal, a spokesperson for the Yorkshire Motorsport Festival said: "No British batsman will ever have been seeking such a bitter-sweet six.

"The tension and relief will be tangible – definitely a match not to be missed!"

Rob Oakley, chairman of Upperthong Cricket Club, said: “It’s brilliant to have these grand old vehicles to showcase our club. We’re a family-friendly club tucked away in a beautiful corner of the Holme Valley so it’s an honour to be involved in this event and welcome a wider audience to the cricket ground."

During the motorsport festival, which starts on Friday and runs through the weekend, The Benjafield’s Racing Club has over 35 entries in the Wolfstones Hill Climb and will have additional cars on display in the 1920s style paddock.
