We took cricket into my son's primary school and in two years got together a good cricket XI but, more important, a lot of younger KWIK cricketers at the school were keen to get into the team when their age permitted. The enthusiasm is there, despite the fact that cricket takes a long time to learn and it is a tragedy that the wonderful game of cricket doesn't push itself into our primary schools.
My experience proves it works and I do hope Lord MacLaurin copies my lead, but it will cost, of course. The more players that come through our schools, the higher the standards and the greater the competition.
