6 November 2019
Gloucestershire batsman Miles Hammond scored another half-century for Maryleborne Cricket Club (MCC) on the first day of a three day first class match against Nepal in Kirtipur.
Miles made 52 from just 58 balls with 8 fours and the only six of the day. MCC closed the opening day on 311-6.
As announced in the summer of 2018, MCC has introduced into its overseas touring programme a series of Legacy Tours, aimed at leaving a sustainable and meaningful impact in developing cricket nations.
Gloucestershire Cricket Second XI coach / Batting coach Owen Dawkins is also on the tour as part of the coaching setup for the MCC squad.
