The oldest of all the Varsity Matches, the Cricket Varsity Match (usually referred to as the University Match) is one of the most prestigious fixtures of its kind. Dating back to 1827, it is played at Lords Cricket Ground and has seen the emergence of many international stars. Nowadays, the fixture takes the form of a 50 over one day match, with T20 and 4 day formats also contested in at difference venues.
Last year, the Varsity Match proved to be a thrilling encounter with Cambridge agonisingly falling short; however, they went on to win the 4 day and T20 matches in style, and so Oxford will be looking to avenge the 2-1 loss.
Unfortunately the dark blues have already gone 1-0 up with a victory in the T20 match earlier this year, but Cambridge will be looking to even things up with a win on Friday; and with only 3 days to go until the big day, CUCC have officially announced their team.
Congratulations to all those selected!
