For the wicketkeepers, focus will be on glove and foot work standing up and back and stumping.

Clubs affiliated to the GCA are invited to send three spin bowlers and a wicket-keeper to today’s clinic which will be conducted by former West Indies players Roger Harper and Clyde Butts and former national players Garvin `Tibbsy’ Nedd and Mark Harper.

The players are required to wear whites or track pants with white tops, socks, sneakers and walk with their personal water bottles while the wicket-keepers are requested to bring their abdo guards and wicket-keeping gear including helmets.

The clinic ends at 1.30pm.
