Rajasthan Royals and Middlesex will face off for the British Asia cup on July 6 at Lords. The English domestic champion will face the IPL 2008 winner Rajasthan royals in the first of the annual charity series. This match will be a one match face off with a best of three match series from next year. A portion of the proceeds will go to the British Asian Trust.

The two were initially due to face each other in the inaugural champions league, which had been cancelled due to security fears. This event will be an annual event between the domestic twenty 20 champions of England and India. From next year, the event will be a best of three match series with the champions of the P20 to be England’s representative.

A percentage of the proceeds will go to the British Asian trust, a Prince of Wales charity. The charity supports local charities in Asia that aim to bring socio-economical change to underprivileged through education, enterprise and health.
