The Blue Bird’s Advent Calendar of Sport – Day 20

In Features & Analysis by Richard OllingtonLeave a Comment

It’s the festive time of the year again! And this December, the Blue Bird will be running its very own Advent Calendar of Sport! Each day we will bring you a cheeky/exciting/interesting/fun fact about Cambridge Sport. Enjoy!


DAY 20

T20 cricket is the latest addition to one of the oldest competitive sports in the world, and was added as a separate Varsity match in 2008 alongside the existing 1 day and 4 day events. Acting as a precursor to the more traditional formats, the Varsity T20 Match has successfully managed to provide added entertainment value, drawing in large crowds and increasing the popularity of the sport.


Even the kit is more exciting!

Despite recent fixtures falling prey to the weather, the 2015 match (held at Fenners in Cambridge) saw one of the most thrilling encounters to date, with Cambridge sealing victory with a well executed run chase. In 2016, the Varsity match will be held at Oxford and will see Cambridge looking to make it 2 on the bounce; make sure to go and support the Light Blues!


Stay tuned for more advent calendar fun on the Blue Bird!
