The MCC are touring Papua New Guinea and New Zealand in March, and the big name on the trip will be Kent wicket-keeper Gerraint Jones.

Jones was born in Papua New Guinea to Welsh parents before moving to Australia and then onto England. He made his England debut on a tour to the West Indies in 2004 and played for almost three years before being dropped for Chris Read and Paul Nixon.

The MCC will play three games against the Papua New Guinea side who will be using these matches as part of their preparations for Division Three of the ICC World Cricket Leauge in May/June in Darwin, Australia. Two 50-over games will be played on the 1st and 4th of March, whilst a Twenty20 game will be played on the 3rd.

All games on the Papua New Guinea leg will be played at Amini Park before the team moves on to New Zealand to play several emerging players sides.

MCC Squad: Luke Marshall (Captain), Ben Claypole, Danny Evans, Matthew Eyles, David Harrison, Simon Hawk, Geraint Jones, Ronnie Kotkamp, Mark Lawson, Scott McHardy, Michael Powell, James Tredwell, Mark Wallace
