Giles backs CricketForce effect

ECBtv caught up with Warwickshire director of cricket Ashley Giles at Highway CC's NatWest CricketForce 2009 event - at the start of a huge summer for the sport.

Giles told ECBtv how happy he was to be able to visit the Coventry club with several of his playing staff, helping to solidify the links between the county, county board and community clubs.

And with the spotlight firmly on cricket throughout what promises to be a major summer, he explained how important it was to be capitalising on the interest in the international fixtures to maximise development at the grassroots.
