MCC head to Argentina

Martin Williamson

The MCC are undertaking a two-week tour of Argentina during which they will play seven games including three one-day games and a two-day game against the Argentine national side, plus matches against an Argentina Colts XI and an Argentina Presidents Cricket XI.

"I am delighted to have been asked to captain this tour, which once again sees MCC face the Argentine national side." Somerset's PeterTrego, who will lead the side, said. "This will be a fantastic opportunity for me to get good match experience in different conditions ahead of a busy county season.

"We take with us two promising players from the MCC University Centres of Cricketing excellence, Loughborough's Richard King and Oxford's Will Mottram, who are combining their cricketing and academic ambitions with the help of MCC's funding of the UCCEs."

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
