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."
