Steve Waugh visits TCF ahead of Men’s Cricket World Cup final

In a month where we have been blessed with several celebrity visits, July saw an all-time cricket legend visit the Refugee Cricket Project.  On the day that his beloved Australia lost in the semi-final of the Men’s Cricket World Cup, to arch-rivals England, Steve Waugh, former Australia captain and winner of the 1999 World Cup paid them a visit to assist with coaching and learn a little about the fine young men that take part.

Arranged by our partners Laureus Sport for Good, for whom he is an ambassador, Steve, scorer of over 10,000 test match runs, and winner of 15 test matches in a row as captain,  gave a master class to the players and took some time out to speak to journalists as well. He was impressed with what he saw and you can read an article in The Independent about his visit and some of his views on the World Cup.

Let’s hope that the lads took in Steve’s batting tips as they left for their annual cricket tour to Cheltenham. Tour story to follow soon!
