Coach Paul Johnson is confident a spell with the World Cricket Academy in Mumbai will prove a real boost to our Academy players.
Johnson is currently in India along with Academy director Chris Tolley to coach the youngsters, as well as senior left-arm spinners Rob Ferley and Samit Patel.

And he’s been hugely impressed by the facilities at the world-famous spin school, saying: “We’ve seen some good, hard work from the boys, who are all in good spirits, and I think that’s got a lot to do with the nets and coaches here.

“The stadium here has held Test Matches, and the surfaces are excellent for training - everything you need is on site and I can’t speak highly enough about it.

“We’ve had good nets sessions and the local coaches went through some interesting fielding drills. It was interesting from my point of view to watch them at work, using different coaching techniques to myself and Toll while still getting the same idea across.

“I think the benefits of the trip are already clear and hopefully it can help everyone push on further.”
