The Sponsors of Flannels For Heroes are supplying every player with traditional cricket flannels at this year’s event. The adoption of polyester and stretch fabric over flannels has long been mourned by many in the cricketing fraternity. Flannels For Heroes, whilst raising as much as it can in support of British servicemen and women affected by their time in the front line, is also celebrating authentic British values. It will be the garden party of the year again in 2012, and the cricketers will be properly dressed.
An announcement of the title sponsor will follow soon.
