Field star of blind cricket series
Daniel Field was one of the star performers during England's series against blind cricket world champions Pakistan in Dubai.
The ground-breaking tour saw wicketkeeper Field, 21, participate in the first ever blind Twenty20 and and one-day international series, the last of which was the first of its kind to be played under floodlights.
Having recently returned home with a strained medial ligament, Field was on the field for the full 80 overs in back-to-back matches after acting as a runner to a teammate who hit two double centuries and a 94.
"It felt quite spectacular to be involved in a bit of history," said Field. "We held our own against the world champions so there were plenty of positives to take away. But it's a shame that there is nothing more tangible to show for it."
Speaking about the final one-dayer, Field said: "It suited my eyesight very well. I could pick up the ball much more easily as there wasn't so much glare to deal with. I was a great experience."
Playing in condition in excess of 40 degrees, Field said: "I've played in hotter but my training paid off and this is the fittest I've ever been."
Field hopes to be involved in England's summer series at home to India.
