The Professional Cricketers' Association have named their side to take on West Indies in a charity Twenty20 match at Arundel on June 26.

The PCA XI will be captained by Nick Knight and will include former England players Robin Smith, Dean Headley, Chris Lewis, Rikki Clarke, Martin Bicknell and James Foster as well as New Zealand's Nathan Astle.

The game, which will raise funds for the PCA's charity work, will give West Indies a taste of Twenty20 cricket ahead of their two matches against England.

Steve Marsh, events director for the PCA, said: "With nearly 20 matches scheduled for the summer and the appointment of Nick as the side's permanent captain, the PCA Masters Series is going from strength-to-strength. The PCA Masters has become a side to be reckoned with and the lads really rate their chances against this West Indies side. It should prove to be a very keenly contested match."

PCA XI Nick Knight (capt), Nathan Astle, James Benning, Martin Bicknell, Rikki Clarke, Nayan Doshi, James Foster (wk), Dean Headley, Chris Lewis, James Middlebrook, Robin Smith.

  • Tickets for the match, which starts at 5:30pm, are £20 (concessions at £15), proceeds from which will aid the PCA's benevolent work. Enquiries can be made by phone on 01903 882462 or email to arundelcastlecricket@yahoo.co.uk.
