“It’s not as if I am able to meet anyone there properly, but at least I’m getting to know the clubs, what they look like and where they are,” she says.
“It was important to me to get out and see the grounds, learn where they are and appreciate how beautiful they are.”
So far, Penarth, Creigiau, St. Fagans and Cardiff Casuals cricket clubs have been ticked off the list and there are more to follow.
Those clubs – and others all across Wales – are waiting and hoping that some kind of cricket will be available for them at some point this summer, government regulations permitting.
But for now, it’s a case of every player trying to keep fit and rediscover their bat and ball skills as best they can in the garden or living room – inspired by last season’s heroic deeds by the likes of Ben Stokes.
There have been some imaginative efforts at back garden fielding on social media from club, county and Test players - some involving spectacular catches from pet dogs – as well as commentary classes, online coin toss challenges and quizzes.
Cricket Wales plan to upgrade the coaching section on their website, while Cardiff MCCU – the joint universities side – have been posting some impressive skills videos via their head coach Mark O’Leary.
The programmes aimed to introduce children to cricket and then keep them involved – All Stars Cricket and then Dynamos – have been unable to begin, but there are hopes that even if club cricket fixtures continue to be shelved, there could be some form of junior coaching that goes head, within the guidelines for social distancing.
The determination of cricket-lovers for the sport to get through this period has particularly impressed Leshia Hawkins in her short time in Wales.
“People have been staying in touch with each other on social media, with online apps like Zoom, there have been competitions and commentaries and there are some brilliant, creative people out there.
“The social side of cricket is huge and in Wales, what’s struck me already is the spirit and pride there is for the sport. It’s heart-warming.
