Second edition of Azhar Mahmood’s
Azhar Mahmood’s Twenty20 Camp returned to the ICC Academy following its unquestionable success the last time, and the Pakistan legend imparted more of his knowledge to the ICCA’s young guns this time around as well.
On Day One of the camp, the T20 specialist began training the boys with a series of dynamic T20 warm-up drills, which included specialised stretches that would help in flexibility and reflexes on the pitch.
This was followed by a session of catching and ground fielding on the Outdoor Oval, with special emphasis on rapid reflex actions and a practice period which involved quick, accurate throwing from deep.
On a chilly evening at the ICC Academy, the last hour of the Day was spent with the group’s medium-pacers and fast bowlers, who were perfected in the art of wrist positions in order to deliver the perfect, accurate ball.
Azhar Mahmood’s camp runs from the 8th to the 12th of February from seven to nine pm. Registrations are still open. To register, please visit the ICC Academy at Dubai Sports City or call 04 4481355
