Vaughan to trek the Great Wall of China

In May, Adam Parore conquered Mount Everest

In May, Adam Parore conquered Mount Everest. Now, another cricketer is set to take on a different colossus. Michael Vaughan will trek some part of the Great Wall of China in September, with wife Nicola – who came up with the idea, according to the BBC website – and about 20 buddies for company.

The trek, which is for charity, will take seven days. The group will follow the Huangyaguan Hills, go northwest of Beijing through the mountains, and up Heaven’s Ladder – a steep climb of over 200 steps.

Right then, any guesses who our next cricketer-turned-adventurer might be?
