Stuff

It's a great opportunity to go overseas and practice the game in different conditions which is priceless when wanting to compete at the very top. The chance to train like professionals gives you a real taste for day in day out training at first class level. From a skill and mental point of view the players get insight in to the minds of cricketers who have been there and competed at the highest standard which is a great opportunity for youngsters to soak up the knowledge to again get closer to that peak of the game.
