I was very excited to see Mark Ramprakash and felt lucky to bowl against him and also got chance to bat with him. We all payed some good cricket and had great fun. I was very nervous in the begining as I wanted to ball and bat but when Mark praised my bowling and batting abilites, it really boosted my confidence. He gave us all good advice about batting and bowling. I really enjoyed the day.

Many thanks to all involved for a very well run and enjoyable day.  Special thanks to Faisal for putting the Masterclass on and to Mark for giving up his valuable time.  It is impressive to see how involved Mark is during the session and I know his support and positive comments will be a great boost to my son's confidence ahead of a busy season.

Carolyn, Ned Whitney's mother views on Mark Ramprakash Master Class session at Cricket Plus Academy.

I thought it was really good how Mark went round each group and spent time with each individual as it is not often that you get the chance to spend time with a cricketer of his standing.  His encouraging remarks have given me confidence in my game as a batsman at the start of the season which is really important. It was also great to talk with him about how to get into a good mindset ahead of a match. Thank you very much to Mark and Cricket Plus for a great session with a great batsman.
