The Australian Lawyers Cricket Council (ALCC), with the support of major sponsor Lexis Nexis, is sending a team to defend our ‘world champion’ status at the 3rd Lawyers Cricket World Cup to be held in Barbados in August 2011.

The ALCC is looking to add a number of talented lawyer-cricketers over the age of 32 to our touring squad for the tournament.

Tournament rules stipulate that each team can field a maximum of 5 players under the age of 32 in any playing 11.

The tournament will be held from 7 – 21 August, with the final at the famous Kensington Oval. All matches will be played in coloured clothing and are 30 over one day matches, some of which will be played under lights.

The Australian team is the current holder of the Butterfield Cup, awarded to the winners of the Lawyers Cricket World Cup, following our triumph at the 2nd Lawyers Cricket World Cup held in Cambridge in July-August 2009.

If you are over the age of 32 with relevant cricket experience at a Sydney grade competition level, please contact ALCC President Alex Martin on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
