Cricket fixture taking place next month will have Brian Lara, Virender Sehwag and more stars involved

Cricket fans will get the chance to see a host of current and former international stars next month as Kabir Ali has three testimonial matches taking place locally.

The former England bowler retired from cricket in May due to ongoing injuries, but will be competing in three charity games at Leyton’s Old County Cricket Ground in Crawley Road.

The venue is the former home of Essex Cricket Club and on August 29, 30 and 31 the likes of Brian Lara, Wasim Akram and Shahid Afridi will be playing there alongside Kabir Ali and current England star Moeen Ali, who scored 77 against Australia last week and took five wickets to help England go 1-0 up in the Ashes.

Other names featuring in the testimonial matches, which are sponsored by HKSZ.TV, include Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Virender Sehwag, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Shoaib Akhtar, Andrew Symonds and Robin Peterson, with more big stars expected to be announced soon.

Spin bowler Husnain Ramzan, 15, will also be playing in the matches to celebrate Kabir Ali’s career and will get the opportunity to demonstrate his talent against some of the world’s best.

For more information on the matches see the website hksz.tv.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
