Research into the experience of cricket within South Asian communities by the ECB

Research into the experience of cricket within South Asian communities by the ECB
In order that cricket in this country is representative of everyone, be they players, coaches, spectators or parents, the ECB is looking to reach out and gauge the views of South Asian communities. They are looking for feedback around how cricket might be improved and how it might be more representative.


So, regardless of your specific role within the game, if you are part of or involved with Afghani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Nepalese, Pakistani or Sri Lankan communities, the ECB is hosting a series of workshops around the country this summer, where you can let us know what you think and help us make cricket a better experience for all.


At each of these events, the ECB will listen to your views and focus on key points that have come out of our initial research (see ecb.co.uk/southasiancricket for the full research details). We would like to know; what are the current barriers to getting involved, what is going well, what are we missing and are there any new ideas that we could bring in?


Your ideas and insights will help us build our future plans.


This is a real opportunity to help influence and shape the future direction of the game.


Everyone attending one of the events will be entered into a raffle to win 4 VIP tickets to England vs India or England vs Pakistan in the summer of 2018. All events will also have free food and drink and offer those who attend a chance to meet players plus free tickets to a local T20 Blast Match.


Please sign up to one of the events below and let us know about your views and experiences. We want to know what you think and help us to make this game better for everyone.
