Kent to take on Pakistan

Kent will welcome Champions Trophy winners Pakistan for a first class match at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence from 28th April 2018.

The world’s top-ranked Test leg spinner Yasir Shah is set to return to the Garden of England after a month-long spell with Kent during the 2017 season.

It’s the eleventh time Kent will face Pakistan in a first-class fixture at Canterbury with the tourists triumphant in three of their previous visits.

Head coach Matt Walker said: “We’re delighted to welcome international opposition to Kent again next season.

“It will be a good experience for our players to face some top-level cricketers and provide an entertaining match for our supporters.

“With the Women’s ODI at The Spitfire Ground later in the year, there’s a packed summer cricket and we can’t wait.”

There is the added bonus of a four-day match between India A and West Indies A at The County Ground, Beckenham on Wednesday 4 July.
