In a first for women’s county cricket, Surrey have announced that they will be live-streaming their match against Lancashire on Women’s County Cricket Day – Bank Holiday Monday 6th May!
The 50-over match at Guildford, the Club’s second home encounter in this year’s County Championship, will be available to view live on kiaoval.com with commentary from the BBC’s Mark Church and a range of guests.
Surrey’s Director of Women’s Cricket Ebony Rainford-Brent said:
“We’re delighted to be able to offer a live stream of a women’s county cricket match for the first time in this country.”
“With free entry for all county matches and an exciting crop of Surrey youngsters in this year’s team, hopefully we can inspire a new generation of girls to pick up a bat and ball.”
Surrey’s Head Coach Richard Bedbrook said:
“It’s exciting for all of us involved in the women’s game in the county that more fans will have the opportunity to see our first team play this season.”
