The Royal Gazette, in conjunction with T&T Video Productions, HSBC and Digicel, is excited to present Cup Match Live.

Every ball of this year's Annual Classic will be streamed from Somerset Cricket Club on Thursday and Friday, with the broadcast certain to air some time before the first ball is bowled at 10am.

Be sure to tune in bright and early on to catch all the sights and sounds from the biggest holiday weekend of the year, with commentary brought to you by the Voice of Summer.

Having made six changes to their 2017 squad, which narrowly avoided a shambolic defeat despite almost a day's play being lost to inclement weather, will the four colts selected by St George's make the desired impact for the East Enders to upset the applecart?

And in the champions' corner, will they regret passing up on final trial century-maker Dalin Richardson, making colts instead of Bermuda players Kwasi James and Steven Bremar Jr?

The storylines are many, including St George's surrendering chunks of experience through Rodney Trott, Lionel Cann and the enigmatic George O'Brien, whose last-minute change of heart was rebuffed by the selectors.

For Somerset, this will be the first Cup Match in the West End without Janeiro Tucker since he made his debut in 1992. He bowed out at home two years ago in glorious style with a century to further burnish his reputation as “Mr Cup Match”.

Cup Match can also be viewed on Channel 99 or Channel 517 (HD).
