A Master Class with Essex County star Anje Lague. A day to remember by all!!!

Anje Lague!!! Cricket Plus Academy’s first ever woman Cricket Coach

Essex women cricket star Anje Lague became the first lady cricket coach to conduct a Master Class at Cricket Plus Academy. Anje along with Navjot Sidhu, the Youth Development Manager of Radlett Cricket Club, were invited by the head coach Faisal Khan on 13th October, 2018 at Cricket Plus Academy, to train and observe the cricketing skills and abilities of Cricket Plus young talent. The Master Class had over 24 participants, both girls and boys, who eagerly waited for Anje to start off the Master Class. Anje and Navjot received a warm welcome from young passionate cricketers and the Cricket Plus team before Anje got all the young talent to begin the training with some effective warm up activities. After the warm up session, she went on to work on their batting and bowling techniques. In the second half of the session, Anje got the girls to play the game of cricket through which not only her but also Mr Sidhu observed Cricket Plus young talents’ techniques and approach to the game. The girls happiness was one thing to witness as they wanted to do perform well in the front of the Essex’s star cricketer. After seeing the girls, came the boys’ turn. They followed up the same procedure while showing their cricketing abilities to both Anje and Mr Sidhu.

During the entire session, Anje worked with the youngsters quite closely ensuring that they are following the “Basics of Cricket” consistently. She was able to amend the youngsters batting and bowling techniques and encourage them to practice them on a frequent basis. The Master Class ended with Q&A session where the parents and children were given opportunity to ask Anje cricket related questions. At the end of the Master Class,  Anje expressed her feeling by saying; I am highly impressed by Cricket Plus young talent, the way the entire session was organised as well as the commitment and passion that the youngsters showed. The girls were amazing and boys were remarkable too. She further said; we hardly see young girls from Asian community, competing in the game of cricket but today I saw large number of girls from Asian background playing some quality cricket along with boys. I believe if the parents show their faith in them, their girls could certainly reach and play cricket at the County level.

Navjot Sidhu also added; I am grateful to the Cricket Plus head coach Faisal Khan for inviting me to see the young talent. Our club (Radlett CC) always looks for young cricketers and I am so pleased to see that now to look for young passionate cricketers in the future, I can always come to Cricket Plus and with the consent of their parents and the Cricket Plus team, I can take on and encourage young cricketers to play for Radlett’s competitive teams.

Faisal Khan, the head coach added; we at Cricket Plus have been preparing young passionate cricketers since the formation of the Academy. We always look for well repute cricket clubs all around the UK, to take on our young talent where they can further excel their skills by playing some competitive cricket. I am extremely happy to say that with Anje and Mr Sidhu’s appreciation and support, we can certainly enable our young cricketers, once they are ready, to play high standard of cricket. I once again thank both Anje and Navjot Sidhu for visiting our Academy and congratulate Anje Lague for becoming Cricket Plus Academy’s first lady cricket coach.
