group of boys and staff met at Davenies at the crack of very early o’clock in
order to sit on a plane for 10 hours. At
the end of this ordeal we were met by the warm zephyrs of the spice isle of
Grenada. Our Cricket tour had begun.
a full night’s sleep, an early walk on the deserted beach and a hearty
breakfast, our first training session beckoned.
At Tanteen, just a short air-conditioned bus journey away from our
hotel, fielding drills and game scenarios filled the 3 hours in a flash.
afternoon was then spent resting and relaxing by the pool, running in and out
of the sea and beginning to think about the first matches. After a superb first day, the boys retired to
bed ready to unleash our pace attack, the flight and guile of spin and
devastating batting prowess.
