Millfield at the centre of excellence

The Cricketer have been commissioned to produce a bespoke case-study showcasing this world-class facility


The Cricketer travelled to Millfield School last week on behalf of Durant Cricket, to conduct interviews and film alongside bespoke photography. Specialist cricket equipment suppliers Durant have been busily fitting out the school’s brand-new Cricket Centre, which includes specialist pitches that are conducive to spin alongside pitches that are built for quicker bowlers.

The five-lane school netting system includes fixed roofs and retractable wings, providing full flexibility on which nets are used at any time. It also includes a bespoke fielding area and the option of a black sightscreen for practicing short-form cricket with white, pink and orange balls. The content generated on the day will be used by The Cricketer to create a four-page case study for Durant, which will then be packaged with The Cricketer Schools Guide 2021 and mailed out later in the year.
