Street 20 cricket makes youth impact in England

A short version of cricket, known as Street 20 is being rolled out in housing estates across the country, as the English sport celebrates the Ashes victory.

The programme is being launched by two charities, the Lord's Taverners and Cricket for Change, who have come together to make the game accessible to thousands of new young players.
