The International Cricketers Association is to inaugurate the ICA Corporate Cup, with the first tournament to be played in 2018.
The idea is to hire a Test ground where six teams of 11 players will play a six-overs-a-side knockout tournament. The day will start at 9.30am and conclude with final prize-giving at around 7pm.
Each team will be sponsored/entered by a company name and will contain one past or present international star, and a second international cricketer who will play and help to coach the side.
The ground favoured for the tournament at this stage is the world famous Kia Oval in London.
The event offers companies and their workers the chance of an enjoyable day out playing the great English summer game at a famous venue.
For the cricket fan, the day promises to be even more special. The opportunity to rub shoulders and even bat or bowl against legends of the game, occurs all rarely unless you get invited to occasion such as this.
To cap it all off, there is the ICA Corporate Cup to play for, a trophy that will give your company team bragging rights for a year. That’s got to be worth the price of entry on its own.
