THE Yorkshire Over 60s are getting set to play at Undercliffe Cricket Club on Sunday against their Pakistan counterparts.

Their over 60s are on tour in the UK, and will be playing twice in Bradford in two days.

After that warm-up game in Undercliffe, Pakistan will play a five-match One Day International series against England, with the first of those games coming at Park Avenue on Monday.

And there will be some real quality on show, with the Pakistan squad containing former Test batsman Saleem Malik.

Malik spent 17 years in the national team between 1982 and 1999, winning the Cricket World Cup with the side in 1992.

But the some-time captain was given a life ban from the sport in 2000 after an enquiry found him guilty of match fixing.

However, that conviction was quashed eight years later, with Malik free to resume all cricketing activities.

Malik may be the star name on show, but the Yorkshire side for Sunday’s game has some exceptional talent within it too.

That includes former Bradford & Bingley wicketkeeper John Goldthorp  who holds the Bradford Premier League record for the most dismissals.

Goldthorp currently plays for Pool in the Aire-Wharfe League Premier Division.

One of Pool’s main rivals in the top-flight are neighbours Burley, for whom Ian Frost, another member of the Yorkshire Over 60s, plays.

The Yorkshire team are led by Wakefield native Kevin Watson, the skipper having previously turned out for Bradford Premier League for Wrenthorpe, Carlton and Altofts.
