A blind cricket international match is to take place in Solihull on Tuesday (August 11).

England, fresh from comprehensive series victories against West Indies and Australia, host reigning world champions Pakistan in a three-match series.

The two sides, who are regarded as the best in the world, will begin their battle at Moseley Cricket Club’s ground on Streetsbrook Road.

Blind cricket includes sportsmen with a mixed range of sight, from partially sighted to fully blind.

The balls contain ball bearings so the players can hear them and the stumps are painted bright orange.

Entrance to the game is free of charge and all spectators are welcome, with games starting at 11am and lasting for 40 overs per side.
