An invitation from Matthew Hoggard MBE

I would to invite you to join me next month at one of our Presentation Evenings where you can find out about a fantastic opportunity to tour Dubai this autumn.

Training and playing in a different country in unfamiliar conditions not only develops cricketing skills but it also enriches the life of a young cricketer – this is an exclusive opportunity to experience life as a top-class cricketer.

The dates for the Presentation Evenings are:

  • Monday 11th May
  • Monday 18th May

Both presentations run from 6pm to 7.30pm and take place at the City Cricket Academy, 8 Commercial Square, Freemens Common, Leicester, LE2 7SR. You will find out more about the tours to Dubai’s ICC Academy and we can answer any questions you may have.

CCA’s Sonia faces Australia

CCA’s Sonia Odedra is preparing to face Australia in England Women’s Academy tour to Dubai.

The 26-year-old has been named in a 14-strong squad to play against Australian Women’s Shooting Stars in four 50-over matches and two Twenty20s.

She joined up with the squad on Monday to jet out to the Persian Gulf, with the first 50-over match scheduled for Thursday, April 9.

Sonia, who opens the batting for Nottinghamshire, took two wickets on her senior England debut in 2014 as the Three Lions lost by six wickets to India.

Don Bhagawati, CCA Director, said: “We are all very proud of Sonia and wish her luck in this tour. It’s a phenomenal achievement to represent your country.

“We see first hand how talented Sonia is everyday at the CCA, so we have no doubt she has the ability to make a big impression against Australia.”
