Wasim Akram, Courtney Walsh and Henry Olonga are among an astonishing array of past and present Test stars to play for Lashings against the Scottish Saltires in a special Twenty20-format evening game on Friday, 25 June.

The Lashings batting line-up includes players such as Richie Richardson, Grant Flower, Gregg Blewett and Shahid Afridi, and under the management of Alvin Kallicharan the star-studded team will surely provide spectacular entertainment for the Edinburgh crowd. More than a thousand tickets for the game have already been sold, which is thought to be a record advance sale for a cricket match in Scotland.
