The Gloucestershire Cricket Board "dream team's" opponents for the first ever Ten 10 Summer Smash competition have been announced.

The side made-up of 10 of the county's best club cricketers will come up against the likes of Gloucestershire legend Mark Alleyne (pictured), ex-Pakistan international Sadiq Mohammed and prolific batsman Tony Wright, in the four team tournament at the Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival.

Also competing in the event is a Gloucester Rugby team that includes Cherry and Whites heroes Andy Deacon and Terry Fanolua and Gloucester MP Richard Graham.

And the line-up is completed by a Brewin Dolphin XI starring former South Africa and Worcester back Thinus Delport and ex-England rugby player Olly Morgan.

The event takes place this Friday (July 25) and tickets for the day are £5 per adult with free entry for Gloucestershire members and people aged 18 or under.

The gates open at 11am with the action starting at 12.30pm with a match between the Gloucestershire Old Boys and the Gloucestershire Cricket Board XI.

Matches will be played in the unusual 10 overs-a-side format and every outfield player must bowl an over. The competition will culminate in a final starting at around 5.10pm.

Later in the evening, Gloucestershire Cricket and Brewin Dolphin are hosting a Sports Question Time at the College Ground featuring Sochi Olympic Gold Medallist, Lizzy Yarnold , Mark Alleyne, and former South Africa and Glos cricket legend Mike Procter. Thinus Delport and Grand National and Gold Cup-winning trainer Kim Bailey will also be taking part.

Tickets are £35 plus VAT (which includes a curry). The evening starts at 7.00 pm and profits from the evening will be donated to LINC and Fredericks Foundation Gloucestershire. To book call Lizzie Archer on 0117 910 8013 or email lizzie.archer@glosccc.co.uk
