The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of the City of London Alderman William Russell is hosting a charity cricket match on Sunday, 4 July 2021 in aid of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal. Set within the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company and against the stunning backdrop of the historic Armoury House and buildings, this Twenty20 match will see the Lord Mayor’s 11 (captained by the Lord Mayor William Russell) go into bat against Bobby Axelrod’s 11 (captained by Damian Lewis).
Damian told Cricket World, “My brother and I have grown up together enjoying both playing and watching cricket and I think we are both looking forward to getting back out on the pitch, and raising some money for the charities. My team, Bobby Axelrod’s 11, are getting in their practice now so we will be ready and raring to go!”
