World XI cruise to victory in North London

Lashings were comfortable winners at Southgate Adelaide on Friday, beating their hosts by 70 runs at the Walker Ground. The World XI, as ever, won the toss and despite losing two early wickets posted a competitive total of 155-6. The bulk of the runs came from the Zaman, with an aggressive 65 and Wasim Jaffer, who made 43. In stifling humidity Southgate never really got near the asking rate and with Australian Big Bash star Chris Green finding form, they collapsed to 49-5 before at least recovering to bat out their overs, closing on 85-8. West Indies superstar Andre Russell was present, although Visa issues prevented him from playing. On behalf of everyone at the World XI we'd like to thank our hosts Southgate Adelaide for a superb afternoon - and indeed for the trophy which stand-in skipper Martin Bicknell claimed after the match! The World XI's next match is at Odiham and Greywell on June 29th.

Caddick back on home turf for World XI

The 2018 season got underway on Sunday, when the Lashings World XI beat Weston-super-Mare in a T20 match. Somerset legends Andrew Caddick and Charl Willoughby were back on home turf, while Martin Bicknell stood in at captain for Chris Schofield. Batting first, Lashings made 152-4, the top score coming from Wasim Jaffer, who anchored the innings with 78. Weston went down swinging, staying with the rate for a while before they fell away slightly towards the end, closing on 131-7.

Lashings World XI under new management

Aussie House of Paine

The Lashings World XI would like to congratulate Tim Paine on becoming captain of Australia. Tim enjoyed a spell with us during the 2016 season and we're delighted he's been promoted. Lashings Events Director, Dave Fitzgerald, said : "We are very pleased for Tim being awarded the captaincy, albeit in difficult circumstances. He was a great addition to the Lashings squad a couple of years ago and we look forward to welcoming him back sometime soon".
David Folb (pictured right with Richie Richardson) is no longer Chairman of Lashings World XI Ltd and will be devoting his attention to running Lashings Villas and Resort in Jamaica. The new men in charge of cricket operations will be familiar to anyone who's been to our matches in the last few years. Peter Lampkin, Scott Charlton and David Fitzgerald are now in sole charge of cricket operations. The Lashings World XI Ltd has been set up to continue the excellent work achieved since Lashings formed in 1984.
