The big hitters of Bradford cricket will be going head-to-head in a special Charity T20 Challenge match at Park Avenue on Thursday, July 27 which promises to produce plenty of cricketing fireworks.

The Gordon Rigg Bradford Premier League and the Quaid E Azam Premier League are coming together to showcase the talent of their cricketers and raise funds for a local charity, Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Pudsey St Lawrence captain Chris Marsden and Farakh Hussain of Jer Lane will select the Bradford Premier League side while the Quaid E Azam Premier League side will be led by the Methley all-rounder Yasir Ali.

League chief executive Alan Birkinshaw said: “It is exciting to be able to show the best of Bradford cricket at the iconic Park Avenue ground and we hope this will pave the way for this to become an annual fixture.

“It is good when leagues like ourselves and the Quaid E Azam Premier League can come together through cricket and support a charity that does such valuable work.”

Admission to the match will be free but donations will be taken during the evening for Yorkshire Cancer Research, with the aim of raising over £1,000.

Yorkshire Cancer will also be at the match if you wish to make donation in cash.
