Belvoir Cricket Club to host Maasai Warriors this week
The famous Maasai Cricket Warriors are to play a T20 match with a difference against the backdrop of Belvoir Castle as part of a UK tour.
The tourists will take on a Duchess of Rutland XI at Belvoir Cricket Club, Knipton, on Wednesday (August 29) with a 2pm start. All are welcome.
The Warriors play in their traditional clothing of blood red shukas and bright, beaded necklaces to symbolise and promote the positive aspects of their culture and country, Kenya, so it promises to be an amazing spectacle. They are famous for drawing on their skills of spear throwing and using a shield to bat and bowl.
