The Napa Valley Cricket Club will host its eighth annual “World Series of Cricket” intrasquad match Saturday, July 20, at Napa Valley Expo starting at 10 a.m.
The match marks the halfway point in the club’s 2019 season and will be played on the Midway Green, on the western side of the Expo, 575 Third St.
The game is expected to be hotly contested as the Rest of the World team of NVCC members look to wrestle back the trophy won convincingly in 2018 by a strong Australia & America team.
Admission is free, with food from club sponsor NapaSport Steakhouse and refreshments from 19 Crimes Wine and Stone Brewing on sale. An instant cellar drawing with wine worth in excess of $2,000 will take place both at the lunch break and at the end of proceedings to raise money for the club. Tickets will be on sale on the day for $5 each or $20 for five.
