Tony Adams to face staff at Cirencester Indian restaurant in charity cricket match

Cirencester’s Asha Indian Kitchen will take the pitch this summer in a charity cricket match against a team led by a great Englishman.

The English legend is not a former international cricketer but former Arsenal and England football captain Tony Adams, who is a regular at curry kings Asha.

Each year Tony gathers a team to play Foyer Rahman and his team Asha, this year it will be for charity, Fareshare.

The charity network aims to alleviate food poverty and reduce food waste in the UK.

Tony’s squads in previous years included his former England and Arsenal teammates Ian Wright and Lee Dixon, and last year Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen in the limited match.

Last year, the former pro football team were beaten with two overs to lose and set a goal of 112 for the restaurant team.

This year’s event will take place on Sunday August 15 and will be open to the public to come and see it.

“I can’t wait to see Tony back on the pitch,” said Asha boss Trust Rahman.

“Tony and his wife, Poppy, have been excellent hosts over the years and maybe now it is our turn to welcome them, we will be catering on the same day and more details will be announced as we approach. Match.”

Asha Indian Kitchen is currently working as a pop-up in Cirencester’s Somewhere Else.
