Former Pakistan captain Inzamam Ul Haq has been named as one of the players set to plunder boundaries at a village cricket club later this summer.

Inzamam will star in the Lashings XI to take on Collingham and Linton in June.

The 44-year-old, who scored more than 20,000 runs as an international batsman, will join former West Indies stars Gordan Greenidge and Courtney Walsh and English greats Phil Defreitas and Devon Malcolm to play in the exhibition match.

The Lashings XI are a touring team of ex-professionals that take on village sides across the country.

They will take on Collingham on Sunday, June 22 at the club’s Harewood Road ground.

Collingham were on their travels at the weekend when they suffered a heavy defeat to Aire-Wharfe rivals Bilton.

The home side rattled up 228-9 before declaring due to the threat of rain.

In reply, Collingham were skittled four runs short of the century mark as they lost by 132 runs, collecting just four points in the new scoring system.

This week, the 2012 winners host Burley.

Meanwhile, Bardsey were humbled at home to Silsden by 81 runs.

Bardsey bowled the visitors out for 172, but their chase fell apart and they were dismissed for 91.

Matt Wells’ side head to Menston on Saturday.
