THREE north Kent girls were bowled over when they met a cricketing super star.

After winning a national competition, two Gravesend sisters and a Dartford girl spent the day with England captain Nasser Hussain at a cricket summer school.

When they learned they had won a day at the coaching session in Chelmsford, Essex, Kamaljit Kainth, 13, of Clarence Row, and her 12-year-old sister Manpreet Kaur were knocked for six. Manpreet said: “Nasser was brilliant. He taught us how to hold the bat and how to bowl.

Cricket-mad Sam Daniels, 11, of Lunedale Road, Dartford, was equally impressed. She said: “Nasser was very nice and I nearly bowled him out.”

The girls took part in the summer activities of the Disney Channel Kids Awards.
