EAST Albury cricketer James McNeil could face off with some of India’s biggest names when he tours with the World All Stars X1 university side next month.
McNeil will play several Twenty20 matches during the seven-day tour of India with one expected to be against the Kolkata Knightriders, captained by Test star Gautam Gambir.
“I haven’t seen the schedule but there was talk of us playing the Kolkata Knightriders — that would be a great experience,” McNeil said.
“There will be a lot of Twenty20 cricket during the tour and it should be good fun.”
McNeil has spent the past five years with University of NSW in Sydney before coming home to work as an exercise physiologist at Flex Out Physiotherapy at Gardens Medical Centre.
The young Crow all-rounder hopes to do strength and conditioning work with Cricket Albury-Wodonga players after filling a similar role with Cricket NSW.
