On Tuesday England cricketer Haseeb Hameed was guest of honour at Cedar Mount to launch a new community club – Wicketz. Pupils were fortunate to take part in a masterclass with Haseeb and colleague Mo who mentored them in a session to hone their skills, later they demonstrated the difficult ‘cover drive’ and offered hints on how to improve their technique on the field. A lively Q & A session followed where Haseeb was asked how he became a champion, who inspired him, what age did he start playing and how long he would he be out of the first team following is recent injury.
The club launches between 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Monday the 6th November and is free. Boys and girls with a genuine interest in cricket are welcome to come and train with the best.
