India tour of Zimbabwe June 2016

2016 is already turning out to be another big year for cricket, with a whole host of historic matches scheduled for this summer in particular. With so much cricket fever going around, professionals and enthusiasts alike are set to take to Britain’s green spaces to battle it out with a cricket bat and ball.

The Schedule: India 2016

The Indian team in particular have a busy year ahead, with a few great matches under their belts already. In January the team went on a tour of Australia, and although Australia won four of the five one-day internationals, India pipped them to the post for the fifth, as well as three Twenty20 matches. Following this, India played Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan and ICC associates in the Asia Cup T20 in February. In July India are set to tour to the West Indies, and from August onwards India will play host to New Zealand, Bangladesh and England consecutively.

Zimbabwe

June 2016 will see the team going on a tour of Zimbabwe, where they are scheduled to play one test match and three one-day internationals. This will be one of the team’s most important tours of the year, as they attempt to continue their winning streak from 2015, when they won every each of the three one-day internationals played and the first of the two Twenty20s.

Cricket has become more and more popular over the last twenty years or so, with household names such as Freddie Flintoff and, more recently, Stuart Broad bringing the sport into the public eye. With that in mind, cricket is regularly seen being played in parks and on cricket grounds around the UK. It seems that whatever your age or ability, a pleasant afternoon can be passed playing cricket with friends. While those who are seriously considering a career as a professional can find high-quality, sturdy cricket equipment in London, it is also easier than ever to find affordable cricket equipment in London that will be perfect for an informal weekend match. Indeed, anyone following India’s progress this year may just catch the cricket bug and give playing the game a go.
