Ralph makes seasonal Shropshire bow in Championship opener

Shropshire have included former captain James Ralph for his first match of the season as they open their Championship campaign against Wales at Pontarddulais Cricket Club this Sunday 4th June.

Steve Leach’s side will be looking to start strongly against a Wales side that finished bottom of the Western Division last season, before they welcome Herefordshire to Whitchurch in a fortnight’s time.
