Dan Lawrence To Attend Specialist England & Lions Camp


Dan Lawrence is one of five batsmen heading to Mumbai later this month for a specialist batting camp run by The ECB to support England and England Lions players.

The Essex batsman will be joined by Will Jacks, James Bracey, Keaton Jennings and Sam Hain out in India, where they will work with Surrey Assistant Head Coach Vikram Solanki.

The camp is part of the ECB’s Individualised Programmes – a new approach that provides bespoke programmes for a targeted group of players, allowing them to focus on specific areas of improvement, as agreed with their counties and the players themselves.

ECB Performance Director Mo Bobat said: “The Individualised Programmes are a great opportunity for some of our best young cricketers to focus on specific areas of their game in unfamiliar and challenging conditions around the world. It’s a great example of how a strong and joined up pathway and county system can support Ed Smith’s succession planning whilst delivering better prepared players to Chris Silverwood and England.

“While these two camps have overall themes of pace and spin, each player in attendance will have a uniquely tailored training programme. Some of the players involved are in England’s immediate plans, while others will be working on areas that will benefit the national team’s medium and long-term needs.

“We’re fortunate to be working with a number of high-quality coaches and support staff to help deliver this fresh approach to our programming, which is testament to the strong links we have with the counties.”
