Cricket Scotland is transforming Festival Square into Edinburgh’s answer to Lord’s this week with passers-by being offered the chance to test their skills at the crease.

Partner Cricket Factory, which runs cricket roadshows, will bring the necessary equipment to the Lothian Road site in a bid to encourage more children and young people to take up Scotland’s fastest growing participation sport.

Cricket Factory’s Pete Gray said: “This is a unique opportunity to demonstrate the sport to young people and families in the city and to support Cricket Scotland in growing the game.”
