Lara is returning to the Festival of Cricket for the third successive year after star turns in 2014 and 2015. 

Australian Cricket legend Adam Gilchrist has said of the event,


The chance to run around with a bunch of old mates and pit ourselves against the Scorchers is exciting and sure to be entertaining for all.
