Having recently returned from a Test and T20I tour of India, six (6) players and four (4) coaching staff will be involved in a mixture of high performance training, spending their time completing a specific and carefully planned programme of numerous training sessions each day covering technical skills, bowling and batting, strength and conditioning and both individual and group activity.
Grass net practice, both bowling and batting will take place at the Cricket Academy. Bowlers run-throughs, fielding, strength and conditioning work, running, speed and agility work will be completed at the Cricket Ground and Gym at the Sierras Sports Club.
Desert Springs Cricket Manager Peter Scott commented;
“We are delighted to once again welcome the ECB to Desert Springs Resort, having in the past hosted both England Men’s, Women’s and age-group teams. This is a not only a great honour and privilege, but also a vote of confidence for Desert Springs Cricket and Resort as a whole. We looked forward to welcoming the players and staff.”
The players and coaches will be accommodated in some of the privately-owned apartments at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef will be on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining at El Torrente Restaurant
