Thrilling finish to City Invitational Cup

The 2nd Annual City Invitational Cup, a charity Twenty20 cricket match played in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, saw a dramatic finish with Ashes winner Simon Jones’ City Select XI take the win with the last ball of the match. Last year’s winners, The Soldiers’ Charity XI captained by England legend Mark Ramprakash, had to concede defeat with the batting team making a last gasp four off the final bowl.

The match, played in the beautiful surroundings of the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in the centre of London, takes place as part of HAC 1537 – a charitable partnership between the HAC and The Soldiers’ Charity which has raised more than £100,000 so far.

Following the cricket, a gala dinner was held in the Prince Consort Room at the HAC with both cricketers giving a Q&A followed by Charity Ambassador, Al Hodgson, who spoke about his experiences of receiving life changing injuries and subsequent rehabilitation which has seen him become a champion skydiver.
