Scarborough Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Durham will be taking on Gloucestershire in a Royal London one day cup encounter at North Marine Road on Tuesday 21 July 2020. It’s fantastic news not just for the club, but also for the Scarborough area as a whole with a further influx of visitors to the area.

The addition of the Durham match will mean that five counties will be visiting Scarborough in the space of six days adding to the Yorkshire v Nottinghamshire game on 19th July and the Yorkshire v Warwickshire encounter on 24th July. All are 50 over Royal London matches.

The Five Counties Cricket Week provide a unique opportunity to see five different counties in action on the same ground within seven days beginning with cricketing legend Kumar Sangakkara speaking at a club dinner on the Presidents marquee on the eve of the Yorkshire v Nottinghamshire match.

Scarborough CEO Rob Richtering said ‘’We are very grateful to Tim Bostock (Durham CEO) and all the board at Durham for allowing this exciting fixture to take place at our iconic ground. Durham have always been very popular at Scarborough, and we’re looking forward to welcoming them to North Marine Road for what will be a unique seven days of cricket. Grateful thanks must also go to Mark Arthur (Yorkshire CEO) for helping to us to make this happen, and for his continuing support. It’s been a top team effort by all parties to put this programme of exciting cricket together. Yorkshire CCC have been very supportive and helpful’’.

‘’We’re calling this the Five Counties Cricket Week, as it’s a chance to see Yorkshire, Durham, Nottinghamshire, Gloucestershire, and Warwickshire all play 50 over competitive cricket all in the same week, which starts off with former Sri Lanka Captain and current MCC President Kumar Sangakkara speaking at a dinner on Saturday 18th July’’.

‘’Durham have always enjoyed very good support at North Marine Road, with excellent attendances when Yorkshire have played them at the ground in the past’’.

‘’Local hotels and businesses have always benefitted when Yorkshire have been in town, and the increase in the number of county fixtures has had such a positive effect on both the club and room bookings in general! To add the Durham fixture on top of what we already have will be another boost for the local economy, especially the hospitality trade’’.

Full Presidents Marquee and Pavilion hospitality along with advance ticket sales are available directly from the club 01723 365625.

We are delighted to announce that Kumar Sangakkara will be our guest speaker at a dinner on Saturday 18 July 2020 to be held in the Presidents marquee at North Marine Road. It’s very unlikely that Kumar will be speaking anywhere else in Yorkshire in 2020 due to his extremely heavy workload as a Sky television commentator and as President of the MCC.

Tickets for the four-course meal will be £50 per head with a discount for Scarborough club members. Please contact the club on 01723 365625 to book your place at what will be a very popular event.

Kumar is a former  captain of the Sri Lankan national team. Not only is he regarded as one of the world’s great batsmen but is very highly respected throughout the cricket world and beyond.
During a career spanning 15 years he scored over 28,000 runs at international level across all formats of the game.
He was a left-handed top-order batsman and was wicket-keeper for many years in his career. At retirement, he was the second-highest run-scorer in ODI cricket and sixth-highest run scorer in Test cricket. He holds many test records, having been the fastest to various run milestones in test cricket. Sangakkara won the ICC Cricketer of the Year in 2012 and featured in many awards and Word Test & ODI XIs during his career. He was selected as Leading Cricketer in the World in the 2012 and 2015 editions of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, becoming only the second player to have won this award twice. Sangakkara was rated as the Greatest ODI player of all time in a public poll conducted by Cricket Australia in 2016.
Kumar won the Man of the Match in the finals of 2014 ICC World Twenty20 and was part of the team that made the final of the 2007 Cricket World Cup, 2011 Cricket World Cup, 2009 ICC World Twenty20 and 2012 ICC World Twenty20. He won the Man of the Match award in the final of the 2014 ICC World Twenty20, where he helped the team win their first title.
