We have created a powerful bank of free resources for primary schools, so teachers can lead their own cricket sessions with confidence.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

The Cricket World Cup is coming to England and Wales in 2019! Get your school celebrating this incredible event with our fun and engaging curriculum-linked KS1 and KS2 resources, designed to enrich your pupils’ learning across a range of subjects.

Our six half-termly projects, developed with teachers, are flexible – do as many as you like.

Look out for a range of prizes and rewards for all schools who get involved! We will be sending a free Cricket World Cup poster to all existing and new members so sign up and get started now.

Chance to Shine has introduced the game and its educational benefits, to more than four million boys and girls in over 15,000 state schools, since 2005.

That’s a lot of playing and learning, and along the way we’ve learned a lot about how the game can inspire, engage and develop young people of all abilities.


Now, for the first time, we have captured, documented and shared our learning.

We have created a powerful bank of free resources for you and your school.

Much as we’d like to, we can’t deliver the programme directly in every school. We know that many teachers are keen and able to offer cricket themselves. These resources will help you to do that; and you don’t need to have any prior knowledge or be a cricket expert to share the fun!


Why cricket?

We’ve developed this programme because we know through experience that cricket can be a powerful and lasting component of a young person’s learning and development, in turn bringing wider educational and social benefits.
