Essex fast bowler Maurice Chambers, who was recently called up to the England Performance Programme back in September is looking forward to teaming up with the rest of the players when he and the squad fly out to Australia for the Ashes tour in Australia.
Chambers, 23, says: "The opportunity to be around international players to see how they go about training on a daily basis will be invaluable, as well as working alongside the different quality coaches who will be able to help develop my personal game”.
Looking ahead to the 2011 season and his own goals, he added: “I want to continue the good work that I had last season and try to stay injury-free, which was something that hampered me at the end of last year. I would like to have the opportunity to use the new ball, which Wrighty had been using for a majority of last season to try and get some wickets for the team.
"The main aim [for us] being to get back into division one," he said.
In 22 first-class matches for Essex, Chambers has taken 62 wickets with a best of six for 68 while in 18 Twenty20 matches he has picked up 17 wickets.
