Yorkshire Cricket celebrated the Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour in Leeds and Bradford this week with a flashmob, educational workshops and kwik cricket!

The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation (YCF) hosted the three Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour events across Leeds and Bradford, along with key partners, beginning at Bradford Park Avenue.

Eight local primary schools were invited to play in a Kwik Cricket festival at Bradford Park Avenue, with 350 children enjoying the opportunity to have their photo taken with the trophy.

After moving onto Bradford College in the afternoon, the Trophy ended the day at the Karmand Community Centre, where the Foundation hosted a women and girls only event. Ex-England cricket Lydia Greenway took part in a question and answer session for the group.
