The International Cricketers Association (ICA) seeks to maintain a relevant relationship between international cricketers, past and present, the game, and the cricket-loving public. It does this by placing players with counties and T20 franchises around the world but also on a more community-based level through its International Cricketers XI.
ICXI & THE CRICKET CHALLENGES THEY OFFER
The ICXI, which comprises some of the biggest names in cricket like Inzamam-ul-Haq, Saeed Ajmal and Simon Jones, plays matches against club sides in England and Europe.You can book to play against the ICXI both as a club or as an individual, the latter as part of an invitation XI. Individuals can also arrange to face an over, bowl one, or do both against any of the ICXI players.
We don’t confine our expertise to the pitch and we offer masterclasses with our superstar players. Clubs, schools and individuals can all benefit from the tips and techniques of the masters.
CHARITY EVENTS AND DINNERS
The ICA also hosts dinners where their star players are present. Apart from playing the game, not much beats talking about cricket in good company and with good food. You can also book our players to attend your own charity events and dinners, product launches or even for things like TV and radio commentary.
Our season of T20 matches takes place between the 20 July until 20 August, which means school holidays and high summer in the UK. We are committed to bringing cricket to the younger generation as we believe it to be one of the finest games invented and a great educator.
The ICXI has played matches in Luton, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire area, but we have played also in Manchester, Leicester, Nottingham, Essex and even Oslo, the capital of Norway. Geography does not constrain us.
