Following this, on-field entertainment will run alongside net sessions with past and present players, before the Masters and the Sir Paul Getty XI take to the field to do battle in the scenic Buckinghamshire countryside.

The Professional Cricketers’ Trust supports PCA members and their immediate families when they need it most. Since 2015, the players’ charity has supported 426 individuals in the area of mental health alone.

Following a Covid-impacted year which led to an estimated annual fundraising shortfall of £140,000 for the Trust, the need for your fundraising support has never been greater.
