Sri Lanka Blogs Days 3, 4 and 5 – Mark Turner, Dan Redfern and Tom Poynton

MarkTurnerDay 3 - Mark Turner

BREAKING NEWS: ITV have cancelled any future plans to have Dan Redfern on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here after eating the caterpillar found in Jonno's broccoli last night.

What a way to finish day 2, anyway onto day 3...

Same time start for the boys, 8am leave from the hotel to get to the ground for a solid 3 hour training session from 9-12.

You know when you're standing getting ready to train, and you’re just dripping with sweat, that it’s going to be a tough day. And that's exactly how it panned out. The humidity is ridiculous, unbearable at times, but I guess those hard conditions make for a tough practising environment which is what we want.

Cricket Derbyshire unveils new duo

Derbyshire have captured the headlines with their on-field recruitment in recent weeks; but the recently recruited off-field duo of Ryan Duckett and Andrew Bowley could prove equally important.

The pair will help Derbyshire make unprecedented strides in the level of engagement with local communities across the county according to Chief Executive Simon Storey and Head of Development Howard Dytham.

Following the recent alignment of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and the Derbyshire Cricket Board under the umbrella of Cricket Derbyshire, the two organisations have pledged a consistent approach to the development of cricket from recreational level through to the professional game.

Duckett, who was responsible for the award-winning Bradford Bulls Community Foundation, will take on the newly inaugurated position of Director of Fundraising and Partnerships. His remit includes providing a self-funding and sustainable profile in the community; increasing public and private sector revenue and harnessing the power of cricket to make a positive impact on communities across Derbyshire.

Sri Lanka NetsDay 1  - Richard Johnson

So here it is; my first trip away as a Derbyshire player.

Exciting times ahead and Sri Lanka is the destination, where we undertake a 10 day training camp learning to play against spin in tough sub-continental conditions.

However, the first battle ahead is the ridiculously long journey, including a testing 14 hour wait in Mumbai airport... How will we cope?!

I was thinking before the start of this tour: "how on earth can I make a big impression on the lads during my time away? How can I stand out above the rest and really make an impact?"
