Mahmood passes on knowledge at PCA day
The England international was on hand at the PCA's Rookie Camp at Edgbaston, where six young Lancashire players were in attendance
Lancashire and England fast bowler Saqib Mahmood passed on advice to county cricket's young players yesterday (Tuesday 25 February) as part of the Professional Cricketers' Assocation's annual Rookie Camp.
The 23-year-old, who was named as the PCA's One-Day Player of the Year in 2019, was one of the guest speakers at the camp, which is designed to give young, up-and-coming players an insight into the world of professional cricket.
Six Lancashire players were in attendance as part of a 52-player camp, the largest since the inception of the Rookie Camp ten years ago.
Alongside Mahmood as key speakers at the event included Test opening batsman, Rory Burns, and former England assistant Head Coach, Paul Farbrace.
Rookie Camp forms part of the PCA’s Personal Development and Welfare Programme, which aims to improve players’ performance on the pitch by minimising distractions off it, as well as helping them to better prepare for life after cricket.
The event, which was supported by the Professional Players Federation (PPF) as well as the Tom Maynard Trust for an eighth year in succession, brings together players who have recently signed their first contracts from across the 18 first-class counties and the women’s game.
