International cricket legend, Kevin Pietersen commented:

“I felt it was time I passed on my experiences and techniques in making it as a batsman and create the next generation of Internationals. The stage I’m at in my career where I’m looking to give something back to the game, and hopefully someone can get something out of it, which is very useful and takes them to a new level. I’m all about doing things for the sake of English cricket. Hopefully we will find individuals with rare talent and fulfil their dreams. The course is a great way to improve techniques, build on existing cricket skills or learn a whole new sport.”

“ It’s fantastic to have Kevin Pietersen on our Academy Panel as part of the new cricket batting course. It’s quite simply the most revealing insight into top level batting ever produced.”
