Pretoria - Cricket players at Waterkloof High School here were treated to a training session like no other when some of the Proteas players visited the school for a coaching clinic on Monday.

Hashim Amla, Wayne Parnell, David Miller and Heino Kuhn shared skills with the players who varied from Grade eight to the first XI.

Russell Domingo (assistant coach), Mike Young (fielding coach) and Rob Walter (fitness coach) were also in attendance in the first of a few clinics to be held around the country.

Frederik Andersen, captain of Waterkloof’s first XI, said: “Today was a really special day for our school and the cricketers. As young cricketers we look up to the Proteas and it was really special to spend an afternoon learning important cricketing skills from them.”

Waterkloof are also the current title holders of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) Schools T20 competition and came second in the Northerns school league.

Kuhn attended Afrikaanse High School (Affies), another strong cricketing school in the area, and attributes a strong school sporting culture to his passion for cricket.

“My love and passion for cricket really started flourishing at high school and I can only imagine what being here means for the players,” said Kuhn.

Earlier, the One-Day International (ODI) squad began preparations for their three-match ODI series against Australia starting on Wednesday at Supersport Park in Centurion.

Coach Gary Kirsten and his management welcomed back Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis and Mark Boucher to the squad.
