International Cricket Council high performance coach Tom Evans touches down on Rarotonga today to assist Cook Islands Cricket with the development of its elite cricketers.
Evans’s visit is the first of its kind by an ICC representative and has been scheduled to coincide with the fitness testing, trials and selections for what will be the country’s first women’s national team. While on the island Evans will be taking training sessions for juniors, men and women, focusing on developing players’ Twenty20 skills before heading to Aitutaki to see their women in action.
His first training session is for any under 19 girls and boys and will be held at the Tereora College courts on Wednesday and Thursday between 10.15am and 11.15am.
An open training session for any senior male and female players will be held on Wednesday at 5.30pm in Arorangi followed by a full-day intensive training session on Friday between 9am and 4.30pm, open to all including under 19, men and women players at the Arorangi nets.
Cook Islands Cricket encourages all its aspiring players, coaches, officials and team managers to attend the training sessions and learn from one from the region’s leading coaches.
