A WHOLE host of former cricket internationals will be in action at Hadleigh & Thundersley today.

A Lashings side, which will contain West Indies legend Courtney Walsh, will take on the hosts in a match starting at 2.30pm.

And Hadleigh skipper Adam Dobson cannot wait for the contest at John Burrows Park.

“Lashings is always a great game,” said Dobson.

“It’s a chance to really enjoy the sport we love and play against players we grew up watching.

“Hopefully the crowd will be in good spirits and I’m sure it will be a great day for the club and for those watching.”

Joining Walsh in the Lashings side will be former England internationals Chris Schofield, Martin Bricknell, Chris Lewis and Dean Headley.

However, it will be Walsh who is likely to take centre stage.

The former fast bowler lined up for the West Indies between 1984 and 2001 and also captained his country on 22 occasions.

Walsh played 132 Tests and 205 one day internationals, taking 519 wickets in the longer format of the game and 227 in the shorter.

He was also the first bowler to take 500 Test wickets.

The gates open at 12noon for today’s clash and the match is free to watch.
