Late in December 2015, Rick Foster sat down with the Australian Cricketers Association, and had a quick chat about his leg-spin bowling, the club, and what it was like bowling to some of the best batsman in world cricket today. Check out the YouTube video below.
For those club members who have been around training over the past may have spotted a familiar face within the Australian Cricket Team ranks. Back in October former South Australian Redbacks Leg Spin bowler, Peter McIntyre, joined the ICC Sharks for a one on one training session with ICC Sharks A Grade leg spinner, Rick Foster.
Rick has slowly seen a rise through the grades of the ICC Sharks with his sharp leg spin bowling, from section six, up to now our now section 2/A grade side.
Ricks one on one session with Peter allowed him to learn some tricks of the trade, and great tips. Rick continued to improve on his already great leg spin bowling, as well as gain ideas from Peter on bowling a wrong-un and other variations of deliveries.
This progressed a little further, with Rick getting to live out a dream of bowling to the Australian Test Team, during their visit to the Adelaide Oval for the Day Night Test Match. Along with a news clip of Rick on Channel 7 during the week leading up, we were also there to get some photos and video of Rick bowling to some Australian greats like Steve Smith and David Warner, as well as rub shoulders with Offspinner Nathan Lyon, and Adelaide local and head coach, Darren Lehmann.
Rick has also agreed to assist with some of the All Abilities Cricket Programmes to grow cricket in the community.
Hats off to you Rick, we hope you enjoyed the ride.
