OUTGOING Gloucestershire chief executive Tom Richardson said he is delighted that international cricket will be returning to the Bristol County Ground next year.
It was announced this week that England will play India in a one-day international at county headquarters on Monday, August 25, 2014.
Richardson said his final farewells to his staff at the end of last week, having stepped down after 12 years in the role to be replaced by Will Brown.
His legacy can be seen in the new Bristol Pavilion, with work well underway to develop the rest of the County Ground, ensuring they can host international cricket again.
Richardson said: “We are delighted that international cricket is returning to the Bristol County Ground in 2014.
“This will be the 15th time that a one-day international has been played in Bristol.
“What is even more exciting is that the match is scheduled to be played on Monday, August 25- cricket on a summer bank holiday will be a fantastic opportunity for a great family day out.”
