We are delighted to announce that we have another fantastic OT cricketer who has been selected to represent MCC in Spain later this week - Stephen Thirkill reports: 

The men’s T20 tournament will bring together four European countries to participate – Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain, with MCC providing two strong squads and assisting with coaching sessions, and Toby Pettman has been selected to be part of the touring squad.

Overseas tours are a crucial part of the club’s commitment to the global game and over the past 18 months, both the men’s and women’s touring programmes have been on hold due to the complications of overseas travel caused by Covid-19.

The club had been due to visit the Czech Republic, Nepal, Spain and Uganda in 2020, having already toured Argentina and Pakistan in the early part of the year before the pandemic took hold.

MCC Assistant Secretary (Cricket and Operations) Jamie Cox said: “Overseas touring is a vital part of the club’s commitment to the growth of the global game, and we are thrilled to be able to restart our touring programme with this tournament in Spain.

“The quality of cricket will be of a high standard and bringing these nations together to face each other, and MCC, will be of great benefit to all involved. It also provides another opportunity for our players to represent the club.”

The MCC touring programme for 2022 will be announced in due course.
