Former England Cricket Captain Mike Gatting (OBE) conducted a series of net sessions during his visit to the British School in Colombo recently.

It was an amazing experience for the promising junior and senior cricketers of the British School as they were able to learn some valuable points from a true legend.

Gatting also shared his experience and knowledge with the cricketers while conducting a physical education lesson to the Year 6A students.   

Gatting was one of the most successful England Captains in that era and also led the England Team to the final of the 1987 World Cup.
