The stars of NSW cricket will be heading out to meet the fans as part of the NSW #CountryBlitz. During the three-day blitz, which begins on Monday, players from the Lendlease Breakers, NSW Blues Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers will attend MILO T20 Blast clinics giving young fans from regional areas the chance to meet their homegrown heroes as cricket celebrates its regional roots.
Many of the finest players to represent NSW and Australia are from rural and regional NSW including the best player of all time, Don Bradman, and current NSW Test stars Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon.
The #CountryBlitz begins what will be a big summer for Cricket NSW in the state’s towns and cities, which will include the Plan B Regional Bash and the Sixers and Thunder heading to regional areas for a series of camps and events.
