London's Olympic Stadium may not have been deemed suitable to host any Cricket World Cup matches next summer, but the venue holds no such concerns for Major League Baseball, which has confirmed it will stage two matches between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox next summer.

A test of the appetite for the London venture is that the two fixtures will clash with key World Cup cricket matches, with Australia and New Zealand playing a day-nighter at Lord's, also in London, on June 29, before England meet India at Edgbaston in Birmingham the following day.

"Can grow our game, obviously, in Europe and hopefully getting two big teams out there will be a great thing for the sport". "So fans can expect intense competition during what will surely be a great few days in London".

"All the hard work has paid off", said Khan, describing it as an "historic" partnership.

The 2019 matches are set for June 29-30, with the Red Sox designated as the home team, in what will be the first regular-season Major League Baseball fixtures staged in Europe.

If this were old school baseball, there's a pretty good chance a Red Sox player might get plunked this series as a retaliation for Joe Kelly nailing Tyler Austin. We could not be happier that Commissioner Manfred has been able to make this a reality.

"To have the opportunity to participate in this historic baseball endeavor and showcase our game in London is something our entire organization is thrilled to be a part of", said New York Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium".
