Surrey’s final LV= County Championship game of the season against Lancashire (Tuesday 11 September to Friday 14 September) will now take place at Liverpool Cricket Club.
Surrey’s game was due to be played at Old Trafford but has now been switched to Aigburth.
Lancashire Cricket Director Mike Watkinson said: “The period of extremely wet weather, which forced us to move the Durham game to Liverpool, hasn’t sufficiently improved to re-establish the grass cover on the newer pitches on the square.
“We have also got the International T20 matches (The women’s international between England and the West Indies and the men’s international between England and South Africa) the day before.
“Taking these factors into consideration, and the fact that we have made a significant investment in the facilities and pitches at Liverpool, we felt that this was the correct decision.
“I would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but I am sure that our Members and supporters will understand the need to prioritise cricket.”Tweet
