All too often we focus on what happens to some of our young talent when they spend the cold English winters in hot climates playing a bit of cricket. However several young overseas cricketers come to our shores to enhance their own game.
We have chosen our favourite individual performances this week from clubs we are following, including a lot of very impressive bowling, some displays of intelligent batting and even some final ball sixes.
This week's Around The Grounds starts by featuring Club Performances which include results, centuries, five-wicket hauls and debuts - just about anything during the game, including a streaking this week for one club!
For this story I go back to 1928; many years before I became a member of Elworth Cricket Club. In those days the Club had a fixture secretary whose role was, as the title implies, to arrange friendly fixtures, writes Lee Morris.
