“Although only a short visit, the Camp was most beneficial to the squad. Nick was always around to help us and make sure our logistical requirements were met. Due to some rain on day one we needed flexibility, and this was provided. The opportunity to talk about and plan future events was also welcome, and we enjoyed our short stay at Desert Springs.”

Denmark player Omar Hayat commented;

“The facilities at Desert Springs have been excellent with wonderful surroundings. It is a really well-maintained cricket ground with a good pitch and outfield. The staff have been very kind and looked after us. We are looking forward to coming here again, but for longer next time.”

Denmark player Amjad Khan commented;

“Very amazing facilities and in beautiful surroundings. For the purpose of our preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers the resort has been absolutely perfect. We have been well looked after and look forward to returning again.”
