MCC Universities Final- preview

Loughborough take on Durham in the MCC Universities Final at Lord's on Friday 25 June.

Loughborough and Durham have battled their way to this showpiece final and the chance to play at Lord's by topping the table ahead of the other four MCC Universities.

Both sides boast talented players and Friday's match should be a great day's cricket.

Gifted alumnus

The MCC Universities have produced some fantastic cricketers - not least England's Ashes-winning captain Andrew Strauss, part of finalist Durham's proud alumi.

Ones to watch

The 'ones-to-watch' in Friday's Final should be:

Tom Westley at Durham. The talented batsman is already on Essex County Cricket Club's books and scored his maiden first-class century for them earlier this year.

Loughborough will be well aware of his abilities - he scored 142 against them earlier this season.

Social Science student John Glover is one to watch with the ball in hand. The right-arm seamer is signed to Glamorgan.

There's a familiar name in the Loughborough squad, who boast a Malan.

Charl Malan, brother of England and Middlesex's Dawid, is a former MCC Young Cricket - so may be more familiar with the Home of Cricket than some of his team-mates.

Match details

The gates at Lord's open at 10am with the 50-over match due to start at 11am.

There is also a MCCUs Women's match taking place on the Nursery Ground. The entry prices cover both matches.
