Travelling with the team but not playing

These 4 children have trained hard for a long time in case they were needed to be part of the team. They are travelling to the UK with the team as a reward for their dedication!

The Street Child Cricket World Cup will kick off with 2 days of play at Parkers Piece, Cambridge, on 4th and 5th of May. From there, the teams will move to play the finals at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London on May 7th.
