Shoaib Akhtar and Geraint Jones in Lashings All-Stars team for a t20 festival at The Mote

29 August 2014
by Messenger Reporter

Shoaib Akhtar and Geraint Jones top the bill for the Lashings All-Stars for Sunday’s t20 Festival at the Mote.

Akhtar, one of the quickest bowlers ever to play the game, took more than 400 wickets for Pakistan during a 14-year international career and he’s back with Lashings after first playing for them in 2001.

For Kent fans it could be a last chance to see wicketkeeper Jones on home soil following the news the county will not be offering him a deal for 2015.

Lashings’ squad also includes all-rounder Yasir Arafat, star of Kent’s 2007 t20 win and his Pakistan compatriot, the prolific Mohammad Yousuf.

The t20 triple-header starts at 11am, when Lashings take on the House of Commons and Lords XI in the first semi-final.

The Mote will then play the RAC before the winners meet in the final.

Lashings squad: Phil DeFreitas – captain (pictured), Herschelle Gibbs, Shoaib Akhtar, Wasim Jaffer, Devon Malcolm, John Emburey, Geraint Jones, Martin Bicknell, Corey Collymore, Saqlain Mushtaq, Yasir Arafat, Mohammad Yousuf, John Lever (manager).
