Nijjar and Plom Enjoying Life In Sydney


Essex 2nd XI Player of the Year Aron Nijjar and Young Lion Jack Plom are loving their time out in Australia participating in the International Cricket Programme (ICP).

The ICP is a course which is designed to enable every player to reach their full potential whilst working with some of the world’s best players and most elite coaches.

Both Aron and Jack are training with the ICP together during the week but are representing different teams whilst in Australia, with Nijjar playing for Easts Cricket Club and Plom competing for Gordon District Cricket Club, both located in New South Wales.

Nijjar said: “I’m really enjoying my time out here. It’s a great opportunity to learn from some really experienced coaches and improve as a player.

“Getting the chance to play against some of the world’s best players like Steve Smith, David Warner and Shane Watson is a real challenge but it’s testing my skills and I feel like I’m going to come back to Essex a better player because of it.”

Plom added: “It’s a really good chance to improve several aspects of my game and put that practice into real-life game situations against some unbelievable players.”
