The first Cricket World Cup was organised in England back in 1975.  We are excited that England and Wales will be hosting the Cricket World Cup once again, from Thursday 30th May to Sunday 14th July 2019. The event is organised by the sport’s governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC), every four years. The tournament is one of the world’s most viewed sporting event. Make sure you get your tickets, if you haven’t already.

Cricket is the second most popular sport in the United Kingdom after Football. Followed by Rugby, Badminton and Tennis. Cricket will be the talk of the next few months, so get involved and start learning about the iconic sport. The England cricket team rank number 1 in the world, which shows we have a strong team. Harvie & Hudson will be behind the England team during the tournament. 

Cricket is a great game to play with your friends and family as it involves team effort. For those who haven’t played cricket before, cricket is played by two competing sides usually formed of 11 players each. Each team take it in turn to bat or field. The team with the highest number of runs at the end wins.

There is a dress code to attend cricket matches. Gentlemen must always wear a collared shirt in the stand. Sports trainers and flip flops are not permitted. Jackets are not required but will make you look smarter. We have a couple of outfits you can opt to wear at the Cricket World Cup. Check these out below.
