Members of 'Manchester Originals' cricket team joined in the ‘Eid in the Park’ festivities.

‘Eid in the Park’ is organised by Cheadle and Wythenshawe mosques which this year saw close to 3,000 people from Greater Manchester gather for a grand outdoor prayer at Bruntwood Park, Cheadle.

Representatives from Manchester Originals, who are set to compete in The Hundred Cricket tournament kicking off in August, joined in celebrations.

The team also linked up with the newly announced Official Chai Partner of The Hundred, Chaiiwala.

As part of the competition, Manchester Originals will be playing at Emirates Old Trafford throughout August, with their first game kicking off on Saturday 5 August.

"I can’t wait to see how the partnership unfolds as the Hundred season kicks off and Manchester Originals plays at Emirates Old Trafford.”
