The Trophy was on display at NatWest's Nottingham Smiths branch the day before the latest one day international between England and Sri Lanka which was taking place at Trent Bridge.

The NatWest Cricket Club Pro Bowling Tour was a free event which took place in Old Market Square allowing fans to interactively test their bowling skills against cricket legend Michael Vaughan via the Pro Bowling Challenge. Fans who took part could also log onto to review the speed and accuracy of their bowling performance.

To reward the support of everyone who took part in the Pro Bowling Tour, visitors had the opportunity to join the new NatWest Cricket Club and be in with a chance to win tickets for the England vs. Sri Lanka match. The Club has been launched this season to celebrate everything NatWest does in the world of cricket from international to grassroots level.

Together with Michael Vaughan, the NatWest Cricket Club aims to galvanise cricket fans across the country to help raise awareness of the challenges facing the game plus offer great rewards to those involved in making local and community cricket stronger.
