Wasim Akram Fast Bowling Master Class- 24th June, 2012
The left arm pace legend Wasim Akram conducted Fast Bowling Master Class at Cricket Plus Academy on 24th of June, 2012, in Luton. It was his first ever visit to Luton, Bedfordshire. Wasim along with head coach Faisal Khan and the Cricket Plus team were given a warm welcome by the participants, their parents and coaches. He then went on to deliver two individual Master Class sessions.
Wasim focused on the basics of the fast bowling which included the grip, run up, action and the follow through. He worked with the passionate cricketers on one-on-one basis as well as delivered lectures and fast bowling demo in groups. Along with fast bowlers, Wasim also gave some invaluable tips to the batsmen.
Wasim said; I always enjoy working at Cricket Plus Academy. They are very professional and always try their best to provide the best training and facilities to all aspiring and the established cricketers. I was so pleased to see the young talent in both sessions and appreciate their parents and coaches, the time they spend on their children/students to achieve their cricketing goals.
I hope the basics I taught them; they will follow them all the way to improve their bowling skills further. They all have lots to achieve and I wish them all the best and look forward to see them again in future.
The participants, their parents and coaches had travelled from Leicester, Manchester, Southampton, Rutland, Peterborough and beyond.
Wasim will be back at Cricket Plus Academy next year to conduct some more exciting Master Classes and will be working with the youth and local community along with Faisal and Cricket Plus team.
