Allan Lamb selects his greatest England & Rest of the World sides ahead of Cricket for Heroes

Former England cricketer Allan Lamb has named his greatest England and Rest of the World sides ahead of the inaugural Help for Heroes Twenty20 fundraiser on 17th September. The two sides were composed of players who previously played with or against Lamb.

Lamb struggled to get down to XI when selecting both teams, particularly for the Rest of the World - he clearly had too many world class players to choose from! When asked who he thought would win the hypothetical match, Lamb replied, “Hands down the rest of the world…that’s a really good side.”

Lamb is the Chairman of Selectors for the upcoming Cricket for Heroes event at the Kia Oval on 17th September, featuring a headline match contested by global cricket stars past and present. Tickets cost £20 for adults and £1 for children, and can be purchased here.
