Hand-eye coordination and a good aim are essential for professional cricketers in the age of Twenty20 cricket, and those skills also came in handy when Essex stars took on a Coconut Shy challenge.

All-rounder Graham Napier introduces the Unibet Coconut Shy Challenge where he challenges his team-mates to hit any of the six coconuts lined up in front of them

They are given three attempts, and some do better than others.

Tom Westley is up first followed by Callum Taylor (apparently the man wit the best arm at the club), Ravi Bopara, Tom Moore before Napier himself tries to show them how it is done.

Who would your money be on, and which other cricketers - past or present - do you think would excel at this sort of challenge?

Away from the coconut shy, Essex are next in action when they play Middlesex in the T20 Blast on Friday before they take on Somerset and Kent in the One-Day Cup on 12th and 15th June respectively.
