Chanderpaul among stars for charity match

West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, South Africa all-rounder Albie Morkel and England women wicketkeeper-batter Sarah Taylor are among the star names playing in a charity Twenty20 game between a Derbyshire XI and Glenn McGrath Foundation XI at Chesterfield on Monday evening.

Derbyshire overseas players Chanderpaul and Morkel plus Taylor are to represent the county side, which will be led by Kim Barnett and include the likes of Devon Malcolm, Adrian Rollins, Stephen Stubbings and Kevin Dean.

Barnett will face his former team-mate Chris Adams, who has been selected for the McGrath Foundation XI alongside McGrath himself, Darren Gough and Jason Gillespie.

Players and supporters will don pink-themed clothing to increase breast cancer awareness in young women, to support the UK Breast Cancer Care charity and to boost the McGrath Foundation's work in Australia.

A percentage of funds raised will also go to the Cricket Derbyshire Community Foundation, a new charity established to deliver cricket based sport, education and health projects to benefit the people of Derbyshire.

Cricket Derbyshire director of partnerships Ryan Duckett said: "This is a great opportunity for supporters to roll back the years and see the stars of yesteryear play for Derbyshire once again.

"And with so many international stars of the past and present in action, this really is an event not to be missed - and it's for a selection of excellent causes."

The hours of play are 6pm to 8:45pm. Advanced tickets are £15 for adults, £5 for juniors and children under five are free. Adult tickets on the day are £20 or £15 for a card-holding member of Derbyshire, £5 for juniors and children under fives are free. Car parking is £4 in advance and £5 on the day. This match is not included in Derbyshire’s 2013 membership package.
