Fans brace for first competitive match between England and Pakistan

A cricket match between England’s fans and their British-Pakistani counterparts will take place in Birmingham next month prior to Pakistan’s first Test against England at Lord’s.

The Barmy Army will compete for the Edgbaston Fans Trophy against the newly-formed National Asian Cricket Council (NACC) in a T20 match at Attock Cricket Club on July 13.

According to Edgbaston Stadium’s chief executive Neil Snowball, the match will give a greater profile to fans ahead of Pakistan’s tour of England and will also promote an atmosphere of unity among fans from both sides.
