A brilliant opportunity to be taught by the best…

Cricket as we all know is a hugely popular sport in Dubai and now there is a chance for the next generation of talent to be unearthed at trials to be held in Dubai.

The ICC Academy, based at Dubai Sports City, is holding trials for boys and girls aged between 13 and 18 and those that impress will win a place on the academy’s scholarship programme.

Well, we might be a little old, but we were still keen to find out what exactly you need to make it as a cricketer.

Watch as we were put through our paces at the ICC Academy…

The trials take place on Friday, 31st August and 12 of the best players will be awarded a one-year scholarship.

Coaches will be looking for people who can demonstrate a good level of fitness and athleticism, a good understanding of the game and players who can perform under pressure.

So, that pretty much rules us out.

We fully recommend getting along to the trials though if you are mad about cricket. And don’t forget about us when you’re a global sporting superstar.
