FORMER Australian opening batsman, John Dyson will be inspiring the young cricketing talent of Shepparton this summer when he heads up the coaching panel for the Shaun Brown Cricket Coaching Country Vic Cricket Clinics.
Shaun Brown said, “John is an elite coach having coached Sri Lanka and the West Indies in recent years so it’s fantastic that we have him on board for this year’s camp.”
John Dyson, a correct and hard-working opener, was at the peak of his powers for Australia at a time when the West Indian fast bowlers ruined the careers of a succession of top-order batsmen. Dyson has a highest test score of 127* in 1982 against the West Indies at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Dyson was also prolific for NSW amassing 9,935 runs at an average of 40, with a top score of 241.
Dyson will be joined by Dave Gilbert who was an Australian right arm fast bowler who led the attack in nine test matches and 14 ODI’s where he toured England, New Zealand and India. Dave’s best bowling performance came in and ODI at the SCG against a strong New Zealand Batting line up where he claimed 5/46.
The camp will be held at Vibert Reserve on Tuesday, January 22 and Wednesday, January 23, 2019 from 9am to 3pm each day.
“Our aim with the clinics is to provide an excellent learning experience for enthusiastic cricketers between the ages of six to 16. Our program covers all facets of cricket 20/20, One Day and test formats. All aimed at improving participant’s skills, knowledge and enjoyment of the game,” Brown said.
“It’s fantastic to be able to involve former test stars in areas that normally don’t get that exposure.”
All clinics feature the use of video analysis, a comprehensive program and written reports for all who attend this summer.
