Essex Cricket Supporting Wickets For Wildlife


Australia has recently experienced its worst fires on record and the suffering continues on a mass scale, affecting both humans and animals in unprecedented numbers.

Essex Overseas stars Peter Siddle and Adam Zampa, along with Kane Richardson, set up Wickets For Wildlife with the aim of raising $50,000 to help WIRES Animal Wildlife Organisation, Wildlife Victoria and those without a voice suffering due to the fires.

Siddle, Zampa and Richardson are donating $200 for every wicket they individually take throughout the whole of the Big Bash League, and we want to support them.

A host of Essex players are set to auction off their match worn playing shirts from the 2019 season, so you really do have the chance to own a piece of history all whilst supporting a great cause.

Alastair Cook, Ryan ten Doeschate, Tom Westley, Sam Cook, Nick Browne and Peter Siddle have all broken records this season, with Essex becoming the first Club to ever compete a T20 and Championship double.

You can now bid on one of the the shirts that Chef batted in down at Taunton in that nail-biting Championship decider, or the shirt that Tom Westley hit a century in at Edgbaston.

If you’d like a personalised message on the shirt from the player, that can also be arranged.

You can browse the shirts currently up for auction by clicking here.

All the money raised from these auctions will be going directly to Wickets For Wildlife, which will in turn go directly to WIRES Animal Wildlife Organisation and Wildlife Victoria.
