A consortium led by former England cricketer Sir Ian Botham has selected Capita Symonds to help push forward the development and UK roll-out of the new Cage Cricket concept.

Launched in June, the "urban form of cricket" has been devised by Lawrence Prittipaul - a former Hampshire cricketer - and Trevor McArdle after four years of trial and development.

The concept aims to provide young people with an opportunity to play cricket in urban areas where local playing space and opportunities to join a cricket club are not provided.

Cage Cricket is played on a basketball-sized court and involves six players, with each player taking up one of six zones per over. The game tests batting, bowling and fielding skills.

The concept has already been successfully piloted in a number of schools and communities across the UK, with the aim now to expand its reach throughout the country.

Sir Ian said: "If someone can go from beach cricket to playing for the West Indies, then why can't we have a vehicle that does the same in our urban areas?"
