Devon Malcolm, who famously took nine wickets in a test innings at the Oval after telling the South African opposition "you guys are history," was bowling deliveries to those brave enough to test their cricketing skills in Canada Square Park, Canary Wharf.
The event held in the heart of London's famous business and shopping district raised awareness for the Johnjac Cricket Supplies 'Concertina' cricket net system and 'Chance to Shine, supported by Brit Insurance'. The Cricket Foundation's charitable campaign is the biggest single school sport development programme ever undertaken in Britain.
The Concertina nets use minimum storage space and can easily be rolled out across a school playground. Hundreds of school children across Tower Hamlets are now being given an unprecedented chance to practice cricket at school, thanks to Concertina cricket nets and funding by Canary Wharf Group.
