Note to county captains and representatives

Selection for the England 70+ squad for the 2024 World Cup

We will be holding the inaugural 70s Cricket World Cup in England during late July and early August this year. This note is to ask if your county have any qualifying players who you would like us to consider for the England squad in that tournament. To be qualified a player must be 70 years old by the end of this year.
To be considered for the two trial games we have arranged for 28th April and 5th May a player must have performed consistently well for his county 60s side over a number of years, a batting average of forty plus is a decent indicator for a top six batter something around the mid-thirties for an all-rounder and mean bowling and wicket taking abilities over a number of years for all-rounders and bowlers. Mobility in the field is another key attribute to consider.
In assessing candidates, please consult within your county and if you feel you have someone who has it in them to play for England and has not previously done so at 60s or 70s level or been involved in recent trial matches, I look forward to hearing from you before the end of January please.
