Sixth Former plays cricket at Lord's
Sixth Former, Atharva is celebrating being invited to play for the England Schools Cricket Association (ESCA) U16 team against MCC schools on Tue Sep 4. The ESCA team is effectively the England U16 team, with former players such as Sam Curran and Ollie Pope who now represent the country in the senior side.
The game was played on the main square at Lord’s - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play there at the age of 16. Several ECB selectors were in attendance and scouting for potential future England U19 cricketers. Despite a narrow 8-run loss, Atharva contributed well to an opening partnership of 46 to start ESCA’s chase of 296.
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play at Lord's at such a young age.
