Chance To Bowl At Amla And Co In New Road Nets

Chance To Bowl At Amla And Co In New Road Nets

How would you like the opportunity to bowl at Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock and the cream of young English cricket talent?

The chance will be there for any club bowler of Birmingham League standard when South Africa and England Lions practice in the nets at New Road later this month.

The two sides will go through their drills from Monday June 26 to Wednesday June 28 ahead of the three day fixture at the County's headquarters from June 29 to July 1.

It is South Africa's final fixture before the first Test with England at Lord's starting on July 6.

Worcestershire Academy coach Elliot Wilson said: "We are looking to recruit net bowlers and it is a golden chance for club cricketers of a decent standard.

"How many other opportunities would you have to bowl at South Africa's finest current players just a week before the First Test with England.

"But the bowlers will also be able to go through their drills against the England Lions as well. It is an experience they will probably never forget."

The session times are:

Monday 26 June: South Africa 1400-1700 at New Road

Tuesday 27 June: South Africa 1330-1630 at New Road

Wednesday 28 June: South Africa 0930-1230 at New Road

Wednesday 28 June: England Lions 1330-1630 at New Road
