Lancashire players visit Dubai College
LCCC players visit Dubai College
James Anderson, Toby Lester and Assistant Coach Chris Benbow took time out of their busy training schedule to visit Dubai College to take part in a coaching session with pupils on Tuesday morning.
The Lancashire squad are half way through their pre-season tour to Dubai, where they take part in the Emirates T20 competition on Thursday and Friday at the ICC Academy. The Lancashire trio, in partnership with the Club's official kit supplier Kukri Sports, gave a coaching masterclass to pupils from the college, which has a reputation for sporting excellence in Dubai.
The Lancashire trio then took part in a questions and answers session with the pupils ahead of their preparation for the Emirates T20 tournament tomorrow, where they will sport their brand new Kukri manufactured 2017 NatWest T20 Blast playing kit for the first time.
Andy Ronnie, Chief Executive at Kukri Sports said, "It was a fantastic opportunity and privilege to have James Anderson, England's leading Test Match wicket taker, here at Dubai College and we hope that the kids really enjoyed the session.
"It's great to see two organisations that Kukri work closely with combining together and we look forward to continuing our partnership with both."
Lancashire bowler, Toby Lester added, "I thoroughly enjoyed going down to Dubai College yesterday morning. It was great to see so many kids enjoying their cricket. I was very impressed by the standard of cricket played and hopefully we can come back next year."
