Fixtures are now being finalised and there are a number of changes due to the ICC World Cup which impacts capacity at Lord’s and the availability of a number of our opposition. Therefore, the one-day University Match at Lord’s will be played on 28th May.
We have an exciting MCCU County programme as usual, starting with Essex and followed by Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire. The Blues will play Minor County sides from Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire, the MCCU will play Suffolk and CUWCC will play Essex Women 2nd XI.
Other points to note:
There is a new programme for the MCCU this year with a mixture of T20, one-day and three-day matches.
The CUWCC one-day University Match will not be played at Lord’s due to the retiming of Lord’s matches. A new venue is being sought for three years whilst Lord’s is undergoing building work.
We have a new three-day Blues fixture against the Free Foresters in the run up to the four-day University Match.
As usual, British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) fixtures for the Women’s MCCU and Colleges XI are not yet available but will be posted as soon as they are published.
Changes and updates wil be posted here throughout the season.
