Warwickshire's home LV= Insurance County Championship fixture against Somerset, which starts on Monday 12 September, will go ahead as planned.

The Club will pay tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II before the 10.30am start of play and will announce those plans in due course.

The Members’ Forum that is scheduled for the lunch interval (12.30pm) on Tuesday 13 September in the 1882 Suite will continue as normal and we encourage all Members to attend if possible.

Club Legend Dennis Amiss is also due to speak in front of the Members on Monday in a Q&A hosted by Brian Halford in the Tom Dollery Lounge.

The confirmation follows the England and Wales Cricket Board’s announcement that cricket will resume on Saturday and will pay tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and honour her remarkable life and service.

“Following the cancellation of Friday’s cricket fixtures as a mark of respect on announcement of her death, the England and Wales Cricket Board can confirm that play will resume from Saturday including international, domestic, and recreational fixtures,” said the ECB’s statement.

“The decision has been taken after consultation with DCMS and in line with Official National Mourning guidance.

“This means the Men’s Test match between England and South Africa will begin at The Oval and the Women’s IT20 match between England and India will also go ahead at the Riverside in Durham.

“The scheduled match between England and Sri Lanka Men’s U19 along with recreational cricket fixtures will also take place as planned.

“Before each match, a minute’s silence will be observed followed by the national anthem. All players and coaches will wear black armbands. Branded inventory will be replaced with messaging paying cricket’s respects to The Queen.”
