This really is an episode with a difference as we begin the countdown to a first for the Vipers and a first for the DP World ILT20 – a game on February the 3rd against defending champions the Gulf Giants that’s being christened the Sustainability Match, aimed at highlighting all the things the Vipers are doing to raise the issues of climate change and recycling.

And to let us know what it’s all about and what’s planned, we hear from the Desert Vipers Sustainability Manager Ben Hardy-Jones, who gives us all the details – which include a change in the colour of the team’s playing strip for the day and opportunities for fans to get involved.

It’s an exciting innovation and hopefully, once you’ve listened to what Ben has to say, you’ll be enthused about it too – and if you’re in the UAE you’ll be keen to come along and play your part on the day.

Tickets for all Vipers matches, not just the sustainability match but every game the team is playing this season, starting with the next one – like the Sustainability Match, against the Gulf Giants, on Wednesday, January 24th, are on sale and can be purchased via the ILT20 website or at any Virgin Megastore across the UAE.
