One of the best loved and most historic events in the social and sporting calendar, Cheltenham Cricket Festival, is returning to the stunning grounds of Cheltenham College in July

From July 15-28, supporters will be able to watch Gloucestershire in two Vitality Blast & two Specsavers County Championship matches at the festival this year.

For the first time at the historic festival, there will be three 50 over International under 19 matches being played. England, India and Bangladesh are the three countries being represented in the Under 19 ODI Tri-Series, Gloucestershire supporters will no doubt hope that youngster Ben Charlesworth will be included in the England under 19 squad.
