A catalogue of 62 lots are now open for bidding at cricketauction.co.uk where cricket fans can also secure international match hospitality experiences at Lord’s, Kia Oval, Trent Bridge, Edgbaston, Emerald Headingley and Emirates Old Trafford.
Somerset County Cricket Club have donated the following items to the auction:

The auction forms part of the Together Through This Test campaign, cricket’s co-ordinated response to Covid-19 that seeks to highlight initiatives across the professional and amateur game.
All donors have nominated a charitable cause to receive the proceeds from their lots.
Strategy Director Sarah Trunks said: “It’s been fantastic to collaborate with all First-Class Counties, the ECB, PCA and MCC to raise funds for many great causes. Cricket is certainly pulling together at this difficult time and we are delighted to support this auction. Our three items will hopefully bring further fundraising income for Love Musgrove, who we have worked very closely with over the last few months.”
