Jersey Coach Neil MacRae recently spent a week in Bangalore, India visiting the Indian National Cricket Academy at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The trip was a learning exercise to explore new training and practice methods in a different cricketing culture. In addition to visiting the National Academy, the Jersey Coach joined practice sessions at a local cricket academy in Bangalore coaching players aged 10-17.
New coaching ideas gained on the trip will be integrated into practice sessions at Senior and Age Group level over the coming months, building on the work already done in pre season training.
Neil MacRae is pictured above surveying the practice nets at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Jersey Academy players Patrick Gouge, Dylan Kotedia and Josh Lawrenson travelled to Ageas Bowl on Sunday to attend a training session with the Hampshire U15 squad.

The trio, who have been training hard in Jersey Academy and U15 squad sessions since the beginning of January, all performed well at the Ageas Bowl.
Following these performances all three have been invited to attend a further coaching session with Hampshire U15s on 2nd April.

MacRae named CI Coach of the Year
Head Coach Neil MacRae has been awarded Channel Island Coach of the Year for 2016. In a year that saw his side lift the ICC World League 5 trophy, produce their best performance in World League 4 despite relegation and regain the inter insular title it was topped off with a deserved award for the scotsman.
Speaking at the event MacRae was quick to point out "im accepting this award on behalf of the coaching team. There's a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes and we have some really talented coaches working hard to help the squad."
When asked about the youthful look of his recent squads he said "we have a number of home grown players coming through our system and this is just the start as we have more in the pipeline".
The evening also saw Ron Halliwell pick up the Michael Lucas Sporting Hero award for outstanding contribution to sport in Jersey. Ron has been a vital part of the League Management Committee for many years and works closely with Walkovers Cricket Club. His efforts off the sporting field are inspiring and this award could not have been more fitting.
The Jersey national team were also nominated for Team of the Year.
Jersey opening bowler Ben Kynman has had a dream start to his 10 week trip to Cape Town.
Following a good bowling performance in his first game for Ottoman CC on Saturday, Kynman was invited to bowl to the South African T-20 squad in the nets at Newlands on Tuesday as they prepared for their T-20 game against Sri Lanka on Wednesday.
After bowling well alongside Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel in the morning practice session, Kynman was then invited to bowl to the Sri Lankan T-20 batters in their afternoon practice session.
From Farmers Field, Jersey to Newlands, Cape Town, Kynman is on a steep learning curve which will benefit the Jersey team when he returns to the Island in April.
Ben is pictured below with South African batsman David Miller at the Newlands nets.
Jersey Umpire, Heath Kearns, has recently been appointed to the ICC Development Panel of International Umpires for 2017.
There was a thorough selection process and this appoinment reflects well on Heath's hard work and consistent performances.
Harrison Carlyon has joined Sussex League side Portslade CC for the 2017
season. Following visits to Sussex to play for the Sussex CCC youth teams in
2015 & 2016, joining Portslade CC represents an extension of Harrison's links with the County where he will also represent the Sussex U17 team in 2017.
Jersey Coach Neil MacRae said:
'Harrison has developed well over the past 12 months, captaining the Jersey
U15 & U17 teams and making his debut at Senior level which included selection in the Jersey squads for the Inter Insular and World Cricket League 4 in Los Angeles.
Joining Portslade CC will be a further step in Harrison's cricket education during the 2017 season.'

Jersey Cricketers Jake Dunford and Will Robertson are enjoying the winter playing club cricket in the Western Australia Cricket Association League.
Both Jersey players are based at the University of Western Australia Cricket Club in Perth.
Wicketkeeper batsman Dunford and all rounder Robertson have impressed during the first half of the season, progressing from the club's 4th grade to 2nd grade side.
The Jersey players are now looking forward to a strong second half of the winter before they return to Jersey in March for the 2017 season.
Jonty Jenner recently returned to the island for a Christmas break after a highly successful tour to Cape Town with the Sussex County Cricket Academy and Development squad.
The squad was accompanied by Sussex coaching staff Carl Hopkinson, Academy director, Jon Lewis – a former England bowler and current Sussex player Chris Nash.
He was selected as captain of the Sussex Academy side for 5 of the 7 games played on the trip, which were mainly against Western Province Academy players.
Jonty had immediate success, top-scoring with 81 against club side St Augustines as Sussex started their tour with a convincing 140 run win.
Former Jersey resident, and current Cape Town based cricket coach, Laurie Ward attended the second game at the Durbanville ground.
The remaining games resulted in losses against very strong opposition. Jonty top-scored with an aggressive 58 and 100 partnership with fellow Channel Islander Jason Martin at Green Point stadium.
His personal highlight however came at the superb Vineyard Oval ground under Table mountain where he scored 100 off just 64 balls with 20 boundaries.
Jonty's performances during the tour have led to him returning to the Cape in January as an "Overseas Player" for Cape Town CC.
He travels out in early January for 3 months to play for Cape Town CC and to undertake specialised one-on-one coaching with one of the leading global batting coaches Gary Kirsten who is half-brother of former Jersey Coach - Peter Kirsten.
At the behest of Sussex First Team senior coach Mark Davis, Jonty is expected to re-join the Sussex squad in March for pre-season training and warm-up games before the start of the County season.
Jersey's opening bowler Ben Kynman will travel to Cape Town this Sunday for a 10 week stint as overseas player for Ottoman Cricket Club in the Western Province 1B League.
Kynman will play regular weekend fixtures for Ottoman CC from 21st January to 25th March.
Jersey Coach Neil MacRae commented:
'Ben had a successful season for Jersey in 2016 including being top wicket taker in World Cricket League 5 with 15 wickets.
Ben's development during 2016 was boosted by a Jersey Cricket training camp in Dubai in February and appearances for Kent CCC 2nd XI and Bromley CC.
10 weeks in Cape Town is a great opportunity for Ben to continue to develop his bowling skills in preparation for the 2017 season.'

Gemma has won the Women’s Cricket ‘Behind the Scenes’ award for her work to inspire more girls to take part in sport through the vehicle of cricket called ‘Crick-Fit @ The Beach'.

Four young Jersey Bowlers completed a week long training camp at ICC Academy in Dubai from 21st-28th February.
Ben Kynman, Rhys Palmer, Elliot Miles and James Duckett enjoyed use of the facilities in Dubai as part of the build up to World Cricket League 5 in Jersey in May. The Jersey players had use of bowling machines and the ICC Academy gym in addition to bowling sessions each day.
The first net session of the week was on Monday with the Quetta Gladiators who had qualified for the final of the Pakistan Super League and included Kevin Pietersen and Kumar Sangakarra in the ranks. This proved to be a baptism of fire under the hot Dubai sun which the Jersey bowlers coped with well.
The following day was a training session with a squad of county players from Sussex, Durham & Warwickshire in which the Jersey bowlers were quickly showing signs of adapting to Asian
On Wednesday the Jersey bowlers began a 3 day training camp with the West Indies T-20 Squad, spending the afternoon in the nets at the ICC Academy. Bowling against Dwayne Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Darren Sammy and others was a challenge the Jersey bowlers met head on, with some good spells against big hitting batsman.
On Thursday morning the players joined the West Indies squad for a middle practice on ICC Academy Oval 1. Two and a half hours of fielding was a test in the heat which the Jersey players came through well. Captain Darren Sammy also asked Elliot Miles to bowl a four over spell which yielded 2 wickets. The Jersey players were congratulated for their fielding effort in the hot conditions by coach Phil Simmons and the West Indies players at the end of the session.
On Friday the players again bowled in the nets to the West Indies, completing a challenging week where they had learned a great deal about the demands of bowling to international class batsmen.
They will now aim to use the improvements made and new knowledge gained from the Dubai camp with the Jersey team at WCL5 in May.
Jersey cricketer Jonty Jenner was named Betway Channel Islands Sports Personality of the Year at this year's CI Sports Awards held in Guernsey.
Jenner was the fourth highest run scorer at last year's World T20 Qualifiers in Ireland, earning rave reviews from watching pundits.
Jenner was last year's Rising Star and is currently with the Sussex Academy.
Four of Jersey's most promising young bowlers will travel to Dubai for a 7 day training camp from 20th -27th February.
Senior Jersey Squad players Ben Kynman, Rhys Palmer, Elliot Miles & James Duckett will travel with Jersey Head Coach Neil MacRae to use the training facilities at the ICC Academy.
As part of the training camp the Jersey bowlers will join practice sessions as net bowlers for the West Indies squad which will be in Dubai preparing for the T-20 World Cup in March.
Neil MacRae commented "Following the success of the Jersey Senior team winning European Division 1 and performing well at the Global T-20 qualifiers in Ireland last summer we're keen to develop the quality and depth of our squad. We've highlighted four young bowlers who are under the age of 21 who will benefit from the experience of bowling in Asian style conditions in Dubai. All four have been working hard on strength & condition bowling programmes since October and will benefit from the opportunity of warm weather bowling at an excellent facility against a high standard of batsmen."
The Jersey Cricket Board recently ran an ECB Level 2 coaching course organised by Cricket Development Manager Lee Meloy and tutored by Jersey National Coach Neil MacRae and ECB Coach Education Tutors Jason Shambrook and Jeremy Frith.
Thirteen coaches took part - 8 for the Coaching Children course and 5 for the Coaching Young People & Adults course. The coaches were from Jersey Ladies Cricket, several Jersey clubs, Jersey Community Sport and JCB junior age group coaches.
The course consists of 8 modules including an assessment over three weekends. Candidates also have to do 40 hours of online learning and take part in 6 supported practice sessions.
During the second weekend tutors brought in players from junior and senior age groups to allow the coaches to experience the "real thing" rather than coach their peers. It is something not usually done during coaching courses but was very successful.
Lee Meloy said "It was a great experience for coaches and tutors as it was the first time these level 2 courses have been run on the island since their revamp 2 years ago. We were very impressed with the standard of coaching on display and are extremely proud that these coaches will be giving up their time to help develop cricket in Jersey. The new courses are very demanding of the coaches but they stuck with it and you could already see huge improvements."
The final assessments for the course will take place on Saturday 26th March and we wish all the coaches the very best of luck.
Corey Bisson and Tony Carlyon have successfully completed their ECB Level 2 coaching award.
Both coaches, supported by the Jersey Cricket Board, undertook a Level 2 course in Guernsey.
Corey has since been involved with the Women’s teams and Tony has been involved with various junior age groups and will be the lead coach for the U13 group in 2016.
The Jersey Cricket Board’s Coach Education programme is vital for the continued development of young cricketers in the Island as we seek to encourage more young people to get involved in the sport.
Jersey cricketer Jonty Jenner has been nominated for the Channel Islands Sports Personality of the Year Award.
The award is decided by a public vote and you can vote for Jonty by calling (+44) 0845 60655 02. Phone lines are now open and close on the evening of 28th January so get voting and show your support.
The Jersey Cricket senior team is also up for the Team of the Year award which will be presented on the evening. This award is decided by a panel of experts.
During the 2015 autumn term the Jersey Cricket Board has continued its development of local cricket in Jersey with the support of the Ana Leaf Foundation. Throughout October, November and December the JCB have been developing skills of over 625 Key Stage 1 Children across 12 Jersey Primary schools. The programme focuses on the FUNdamental stage of the Long Term Athlete Development model. The skills taught include throwing, catching and striking.
Jersey Cricket Development Manager Lee Meloy added “This stage in a child’s development is vital in establishing a solid foundation for them to enhance their future sporting endeavours”.
Janvrin School PE Teacher Steve Ashton commented, “The FUNdamental skills program has had a great impact upon the development of physical literacy of children. Many of the skills that have been practised not only apply to cricket, but to PE and sport in general”
Lynette Ferguson, Year 2 teacher at St Martin’s School added “I feel the sessions are well planned to suit the needs of younger children. It is clear how each session has built on prior learning and our children have thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and look forward to Thursdays!”
Alongside the Key stage 1 programme the JCB have already been delivering community courses on Wednesday and Friday evenings to 114 local children across school years 3-8. These courses consist of one hour of soft ball skills and the second hour of the course aims to introduce and enhance the hard ball cricket experience.
From January 2016, 165 school children from Years 3 to 8 will get the opportunity to play cricket and learn new skills and techniques thanks to the 2016 Rathbones Spring Term Cricket Courses. Enrolment for the hugely popular courses opened on 30th November and application forms are available to download from gov.je.
The courses are open to both girls and boys and run for ten weeks commencing Wednesday 13th January 2016. Operated by qualified coaches, the sessions are held on Wednesdays at Oakfield and Fridays at Les Quennevais and Langford Sports Centre. Extra sessions have been put on to keep up with the increased demand.
Lee Meloy, Jersey Cricket Development Manager, comments “Since the introduction of hardball sessions during the 2015 Rathbones Spring Term Cricket Courses we have given around 110 children the opportunity to come and play hardball cricket. Therefore, this year we will be running an additional hardball session on a Wednesday night to cater for its popularity. As a knock on affect we are then able to increase the capacity of younger participants attending the softball sessions".
Thrilled by the success of the courses, Rathbone Investment Management International’s Managing Director, Jonathan Giles adds “We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of the Spring Term Cricket Courses. With such a brilliant development programme we have the opportunity to nurture talented youngsters and look forward to seeing some really high level home grown cricketers.”

The Jersey Cricket Board is delighted to bring to Jersey the cricket film that everyone is talking about. Death of a Gentleman is a story about greed, power, the endless pursuit of more and the precious things that are lost along the way.
A hard-hitting documentary for cricket fans and non-fans alike. Journalists Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber set off on a journey to follow a hunch that the 140-year old game of Test Cricket is under threat of extinction, only to stumble on something more sinister than they could ever have imagined. During their thrilling three-year journey they criss-cross the globe from London to Australia, from India to Dubai and back again, during which they meet players, the game's administrators, fans and controversial cricket financiers, resulting in a film that is about much more than cricket. This is a film about passion, about money, about power and standing up for what you care about before it is too late.
Duration: 99 minutes. Certificate: 12A
Starring: Giles Clarke, N Srinivasan, Lalit Modi, Michael Holding, Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle, Jonathan Agnew, Mark Nicholas, Ed Cowan and many more
Directors: Sam Collins, Jarrod Kimber, Johnny Blank
Tickets are available to book online in advance at Eventbrite. You must print off your ticket and bring it with you on the evening.

The Jersey team comprises: Gemma Dunning (Captain), Amanda Smith, Tracey Vallois, Michele Leerson, Katie Ridley, Flo Copley, Rose Hill, Emily Le Feuvre, Helen Lagadu, Chloe Greechan, Charlie Miles and Lily Jones. Chloe, Charlie and Lily are all secondary school students and show the success of girls and women's development in the Island. Charlie and Lily will receive their caps on debut and Chloe returns for the squad after a successful tour to Berlin.
Jersey's Under 13 team travel to Kent next week to play 2 matches against Kent district sides Bromley District and Bexley Bashers before concluding their trip with an ‘international’ match vs Netherlands.
The squad worked hard during their winter programme and have enjoyed inter-insular success this season. These matches will provide valuable experience of playing on different grounds against unfamiliar opposition.
The squad comprises: Tom Boarer, Tyler Burton, Patrick Gouge, Tom Heelis, Will Howe, Hugo King, Dylan Kotedia, Josh Lawrenson, Ben Le Gallais, Adam O’Leary, Asa Tribe, Jamie Watling and Josh Williams.
Coaches: Tony Carlyon and Dominic Blampied.
