WINTER: Cape Town Training Camp23-Feb-2012
Sussex’s Club Coach Mark Davis is currently with a number of the squad in Cape Town, which sees some of County’s pacemen stepping up the intensity of their training for the new campaign in a slightly warmer, if not drier, climate than Hove!
23rd February 2012
Will Adkin, Amjad Khan, Jimmy Anyon, Chris Liddle, Naveed Arif Gondal, Kirk Wernars and Craig Young of the Academy Plus are all being put through their paces in South Africa to work on specific skills before the pre-season tour next month.
The first full training session took place on Wednesday of this week but the bowling drills had barely finished when the rain came down, putting paid to the rest of the outdoor training for the day.
The squad were subsequently forced indoors and batted in the nets, as well as doing a gym session, but they were unable to do any interval training outside due to the slippery conditions.
It looks as though the sun will return for the rest of the week though and hopefully the bowlers will be able to get back outside in good conditions to continue their training.
