The Mardyke to host the Oman Cricket Association T20 training camp
Cork County Cricket Club and Munster Cricket are delighted to announce that Oman Cricket Association will base themselves at the Mardyke in Cork for their pre-tournament training camp.
As one of the ICC Associate countries participating in the upcoming T20 World Cup Qualifiers being jointly hosted by Ireland and Scotland, The Oman Cricket squad and management wish to acclimatise to local conditions by training and playing practice matches during their period in Cork.
The Oman Cricket Squad will arrive in Cork on the 15th June and will use the Cork County ground at the Mardyke as their training base from then until the end of June. Accommodation for their stay is kindly provided by our main Club sponsors The River Lee Hotel and during this period, they will play the following T20 challenge games at the Mardyke:
v Munster (Wednesday, 17th June)
v Cork County (Thursday, 18th June)
v Munster (Monday, 22nd June)
v Cork County (Thursday, 25th June)
All of these games will start at 2pm and will be played in coloured clothing under the ICC T20 World Cup competition regulations. Entry will be free of charge for each match with food and refreshments available in the Clubhouse.
Cork County and Munster Cricket look forward to the opportunity to test their best players against international opposition and believe this series of games will greatly increase the profile of cricket in Cork and across Munster. It is hoped that large numbers of cricket supporters in Munster will be able to attend the games and experience International T20 cricket at the famous Mardyke ground.
