Cricket fans are in for a treat next month. Ashes hero Freddie Flintoff is coming to the O2, and he’s bringing with him some famous names for Titans of Cricket – a two hour extravaganza where the world’s best cricketers compete under one roof. And you could be there.
On Saturday 8th October, Titans of Cricket will deliver the best of Twenty20 cricket and the Indian Premier League under one roof.
Fans can look forward to a spectacular showcase of batting, bowling and world class fielding from the world’s best, all at the O2.
“These games will allow cricket fans to see the type of performances that until now could only be witnessed during top class training sessions, when international players are pushing themselves to the limits,” says Jimmy Adams, ex West Indies Captain and Titans of Cricket technical director.
“For the first time we will let the public see just how great these players really are. I really
believe the crowd could see something very, very special come October.”
The first arena-based cricketing contest of its kind will see England and Ashes talisman Freddie Flintoff lead an all-star England team against some of the sport’s biggest legends including Australia’s David Boon, 2011 Indian World Cup Winner Virender Sehwag and 1992 World Cup winning Pakistani swing bowler Wasim Akram.
Cricketing fans can also expect appearances from stars Shaid Afridi, Paul Collingwood, Adam Gilchrist, Marcus Trescothick and more, all competing in five challenges designed to test and showcase their talents for all to see.
Starting on 2nd October Manchester and moving to Birmingham on 5th October, the series finale will take place at the O2 on Saturday 8th October. Make sure youʼre there.
Miss it, and youʼll feel like youʼve just been bowled out for a golden duck. And it will be back to the pavilion.
