Max Trains With Cricket Stars Foakes and Pope

26th January 24

As part of their training for England’s upcoming tour to India, Sixth Form student Max had an invaluable opportunity to train with two England cricketers – wicketkeeper batsman, Ben Foakes and no. 3 test batsman, Ollie Pope. During two training sessions, Max assisted the England stars by bowling his left arm spin at them in preparation for India’s plethora of spin bowlers.

The training sessions provided Max with a first hand insight into the nuances of training in a first class and elite environment. Foakes and Pope shared their experiences, offering valuable tips on reading the pitch, understanding the opposition and adapting to the challenging subcontinent conditions.

Exposure to two accomplished England players has undoubtedly enhanced Max’s cricketing skills and strategic acumen, providing a solid foundation for success this summer!
