London, May 20 (ANI): Rajasthan Royals will bring the Indian Premier League road show to Lord’s on July 6 before they face Middlesex in a charity Twenty20 match.
Shane Warne will lead the 2008 IPL champions in what could be his last outing at the home of cricket.
England star Dimi Mascarenhas may also feature due to his links with the Rajasthan Royals.
Middlesex chief executive Vinny Codrington said: “After the disappointment of not being able to play the Champions League last year, it’s fantastic that the 2008 Twenty20 champions of England and India can play such a match.”
“The fact that the game will benefit such a worthy charity, the British Asians Trust, is a tremendous bonus,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
“This is a great opportunity for the Rajasthan Royals to expand our fan base in the UK, and to showcase the great international talent in the team,” Royals chairman Manoj Badale said. (ANI)
