Queen Elizabeth II

9 Sep 2022

The ECB have confirmed that:

Cricket will resume on Saturday to pay tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and honour her remarkable life and service.
Following the cancellation of today’s (Friday) cricket fixtures as a mark of respect on announcement of her death, we can confirm that play will resume from Saturday including international, domestic, and recreational fixtures. The decision has been taken after consultation with DCMS and in line with Official National Mourning guidance.

Clubs are asked to mark the day appropriately with any flags at half mast and a minute's silence should be held prior to all games this weekend. The wearing of black armbands is approved but left to individuals to decide.

Thank you for your patience whilst we awaited the formal Governing Body / DCMS statement.

RIP Queen Elizabeth II, thank you for your service. Long live the King
