Four Sierra Leonean cricketers; Lansana Lamin, Edward Ngegba, John Bangura and James Tommy are expected to depart the country’s shores on 27th February 2017 for a-month long elite cricket training in India.
The quartet who were selected by the Sierra Leone Cricket Association (SLCA) Management and Board members in January will have to undergo several skills training including technique in the T20 and 50 overs matches.
“The program is designed to develop players batting, bowling and fitness skills. During the session, the players will get video analysis and will play T20 and 50 overs matches,” Bournes-Coker said, adding that the training came at the right time especially so when the country was preparing for the ICC Division 1 tournament in South Africa that’s already bill for April, 2017.
Lamin is the national senior team captain and an all-rounder, while Edward Ngegba is the national U19 skipper, a spinner and also an all-rounder. Both John Bangura Batsman and James Tommy are batsmen.
