Cricket World Cup 2019 are offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play the key role of Flag Team member during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 matches.
As ten of the world’s top international sides come to England and Wales next summer to battle it out for the biggest prize in world cricket – Chance to Shine Street have the unique chance to provide the opportunity to individuals aged between 16 – 23 to be inspired, coach cricket and deliver the national flags onto the field for the pre-match national anthems.
The Flag Teams will get the thrill of walking out ahead of the teams, carrying the competing nations’ flags and then take to the field during the mid-innings break to coach mini cricket games in front of thousands of spectators. Next year will be the 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup and will see the famous tournament return to England and Wales for a record fifth time; the first occasion since 1999.
