Share post:

First-class cricket is around the corner.

And 46 young Barbadian men have been working hard at their game at Kensington Oval since last week, in an effort to impress selectors.

But it’s not just about bat and ball. Physical fitness has become a serious matter for national cricketers over the years, as shown with the levels of hard work being demanded of the trialists every day at the Oval, where they go through a number of challenges and events, similar to a National Football League combine.

The season is due to start in November with the four-day tournament.

Here Barbados hopeful and Spartan off-spinner Chaim Holder, is put through his paces by fitness specialist Shannon Lashley at Kensington.
