Player Jacob Bor said of the training camp experience at Desert Springs Resort:
“Thank you so much for the hospitality and beautiful facilities, everything was great!”
Tour Organiser and Hampstead Director of Cricket Mubasher Hassan commented;
“After hearing of its reputation through the cricket fraternity this was our first time at Desert Springs.
Honestly, the feedback I have got from the players is that the facilities are amazing, we have loved the accommodation and most importantly the cricket facilities were superb, especially for this time of the year and we are looking to organise a return visit with a larger group of sixteen (16) players!”
Grass net practice, both bowling and batting took place at the Cricket Academy.
Strength and conditioning, running, speed and agility work and match simulations was completed at the Cricket Ground.
