Visually impaired cricketers are invited to attend an England Cricket Talent Test Day at Edgbaston on Sunday 14th May.

The session is open to any current visually impaired cricketer as well as athletes from other sports, regardless of cricket experience.
Participants must have a B1, B2, B3 or B4 Sight Classification.
Commenting on this opportunity England Visually Impaired Cricket Team Head Coach Ross Hunter said,
“This is an exciting time for England Visually Impaired Cricket. This is our first of many Talent Test days from which we will be selecting players to become part of the first England Visually Impaired Cricket Academy.
“The Academy is for players who have the potential to represent England and take on the best players in the World. They will be supported to achieve their goals with one to one coaching, match time and the best support staff in World Visually Impaired cricket.”
