TWO Sydney Thunder cricket players have passed on some of their secret tips and tricks when it comes to the game during a recent visit to Leeton.
Kurtis Patterson and Param Uppal were in town as part of a tour of the region, which included visits to schools, as well as a clinic at the Leeton High School ovals.
Future stars from Leeton turned out for the clinic to hear from the pair about their experiences playing the demanding sport, as well as gaining some advice on their technique and skills.
Several drills were part of the afternoon, which will assist the Leeton players ahead of the upcoming season.
Patterson and Uppal are both current players for the NSW side, as well as the Sydney Thunder Big Bash League team.
The former made his Test debut for Australia in January against Canberra and is continuing to push for selection for the upcoming summer series.
Uppal has been making a name for himself in the cricketing circles for some time and is continuing to build on his craft. He will turn 21 next month.
Both players were happy to answer questions from the young Leeton cricketers and were hopeful they would all stick with the sport in the coming years.
