ECB announce two extra t20 Internationals

The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced it will be staging two extra t20 Internationals at the end of September against the West Indies at the Kia Oval.

With the collapse of the Stanford Super Series the ECB needed to arrange two extra internationals to fulfil their contractual obligations to Sky Television.

The games will take place on Friday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 25th, a week after the conclusion on Englandís One Day series against India.

With the cricketing calendar already at breaking point the ECB are expected to rest a number of key senior players ahead of their tour of India in November.

Surrey Chief Executive Richard Gould said: "Surrey CCC is really pleased to be able to host these games at the Kia Oval, in what will be a colourful and exciting end to the International summer."

"We want both games to be played in a friendly party atmosphere with a large turnout from local residents in Lambeth and London, which is why tickets have been priced from only £25, with U16 tickets on sale for £1," he added.
