Past Event


Thanks to the sponsorship of Etihad Airways, Marriott, local sponsors and our Abu Dhabi committee including Chris St George, Richard Draycott, Ed Smith and Matthew Jackson, you could join us in Abu Dhabi from 31 October - 5 November.

For the first time the Lord’s Taverners England will be challenging the Lord’s Taverners Australia on neutral territory supported by John Jeffreys and Stan Gilchrist in Australia.

The England’s squad will include Ashes 2005 hero Ian Bell as well as former England ODI specialist Owais Shah, along with current stars including Jade Dernbach, Darren Stevens and John Simpson whilst Australia expect to include a number of recent Test players. Don’t be surprised if legendary global players are also included amongst the two squads.
