Football team Bradford Park Avenue play host to a Pakistan International XI at their Horsfall Stadium this afternoon with funds raised from the match going towards the White Ribbon Campaign, an international charity that speaks out against domestic violence against women.
Some famous faces will be at the event including former Sports Minister, Gerry Sutcliffe MP, and Shahid Azeem who created history by becoming the first British Pakistani to break into professional football and is currently Chief Executive at Aldershot Town.
– Gerry Sutcliffe MP
"I have always believed in the power of sport to bring people together and this event offers a great opportunity to bring together Bradford's diverse communities to celebrate our city's great strengths, as well as raising money for a great cause. It's also good for Park Avenue to be hosting an international XI."
Yorkshire & England star Tim Bresnan has signed a new contract that will keep him at Headingley until 2016. The Pontefract-born all-rounder is expected to play a major part in the Ashes series against Australia this summer, alongside his Yorkshire teammates Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.
Bresnan becomes the sixth Yorkshire player this summer to sign a new deal. He follows Moin Ashraf, Jonny Bairstow, Gary Ballance, Steve Patterson and Azeem Rafiq, who are now committed to the Club for the foreseeable future.
Matthew Fisher has become the youngest player to appear in a competitive county cricket match. Matthew, who is just 15 years and seven months old, has made his debut for Yorkshire against Leicestershire at Scarborough.
The pace bowler, a pupil at Easingwold School, took one wicket for forty runs in seven overs and scored 10 with the bat
Seam bowler Matthew Fisher has been named in Yorkshire's squad for their Yorkshire Bank 40 match against Leicestershire at Scarborough on Sunday.
If he plays, he'll become - at 15 years & 212 days - the youngest cricketer to play in one of England's county competitions since the second world war.
Earlier this week, Fisher, who's 6' 2" and comes from York, took 6-25 against Leicestershire for the 2nd XI.
Yorkshire also hold the record for the youngest ever First-Class debut, when wicketkeeper Barney Gibson played against Durham MCCU at the age of 15 years and 27 days in 2011.
– Jason Gillespie - Yorkshire coach
"Matthew deserves his call up into the squad. We monitor the progress of all our players, and the feedback I have received from Paul Farbrace _(Yorkshire's 2nd XI coach) _on the way Matthew has been playing has been excellent. He is very young, but he has the ability to be successful if he is selected on Sunday.”
Yorkshire have failed to qualify for the knock-out stages of the Yorkshire Bank 40 competition, so they're looking to give their youngsters some first team experience.
