Titans of Cricket - Birmingham NIA

FREDDIE FLINTOFF RETURNS TO THE WORLD OF SPORT

Titans of Cricket takes the best of Twenty20, the IPL and world cricket and puts it ALL UNDER ONE ROOF, in a two hour spectacular of batting, fielding, and bowling. This is the first arena based cricket event of its kind and it will bring together the world’s greatest cricketers, both past and present.

Four teams - ENGLAND, INDIA, PAKISTAN, AUSTRALIA - will face the ultimate test of cricketing skills and battle it out in the Titans' Arena. Taking up the challenge are Freddie Flintoff and his England stars, David Boon's Australian legends, Virender Sehwag and World Champions India, and The King of Swing Wasim Akram with his Pakistani greats.

The event will rekindle two of the most passionate rivalries in cricket as Ashes legend Freddie Flintoff leads his all star English team against Australian Cult Hero David Boon. Plus, the 2011 World Cup Winner Virender Sehwag fronts the Indian effort against 1992 World Cup Winner, The King of Swing, Wasim Akram. Taking place at Birmingham’s NIA, one of the busiest large scale indoor sporting and entertainment venues in Europe, Titans of Cricket will feature a toxic mix of skills, music, fun and entertainment. The NIA has hosted more than thirty different sports over the last twenty years and Titans of Cricket is proud to add to this sporting legacy with the likes of Shahid Afridi, Paul Collingwood, Adam Gilchrist, Marcus Trescothick and many many more, all showcasing their skills inside this perfect home of indoor sport. It promises to be one of the greatest collections of cricketing talent ever assembled under one roof.

Jimmy Adams, ex West Indies Captain and Titans of Cricket, Technical Director said:

“We have developed these games to ensure that the crowd will experience the maximum entertainment possible. They are designed to showcase such attributes as who has the best reflexes, who hits the hardest, who has the best arm. These games will allow cricket fans to see the type of performances that until now could only be witnessed during top class training sessions, when international players are pushing themselves to the limits. For the first time we will let the public see just how great these players really are. I really believe the crowd could see something very, very special come October.”

Nick Wells, Director of Titans of Sport, the company behind the event said:

“We are really excited about this event, and hope the cricket loving public will be as well. We have worked very hard to provide, what will be a fantastically entertaining day for all the family at three of the greatest arenas in the world. Without doubt the public will be able to see these world stars like they have never seen them before.”
