Netherlands head to Truro


Netherlands will play one of their CB40 matches in 2013, against Nottinghamshire, at Truro as part of the Cornish Cricket Festival.

The match will take place on June 19 and follows on from the inaugural festival in 2012 which included England Women playing India Women.

Cornish Sporting Club’s director, Alan George, said: “For Cornwall to get a league game of this magnitude is amazing for the county and we hope that sports fans will come along to show their support, enjoying what is sure to be a magnificent game. Today’s announcement is major for sport in Cornwall and makes the county the envy of all of the other non professional counties in the UK.”

Richard Cox, the Netherlands chief executive, added: "After hearing such great feedback about the 2012 Cornish Cricket Festival we are looking forward to playing one of our ‘home’ games in front of a packed Cornwall crowd with a great atmosphere. This also allows us to attract more International Cricket to the Netherlands in the June period.”
