Pupils from Brampton Manor School in Newham were hit for six last Tuesday when The Lord's Taverners and Essex CCC organised for 10 youngsters to meet Essex and England star Alastair Cook.
The opening batsman, who is president of the Young Lord's Taverners, met up with the year-seven pupils to pass on some tips about the game.
"It was great meeting all the kids from Brampton and I hope a few will be inspired to go and play cricket in the future," said Cook.
His words definitely had an effect on the pupils as Baseer Ishanzadeh added: "It was really cool meeting Alastair.
"You see him on the TV playing for England, but you never think you will actually get to meet him.
"We've had a really great day and I can't wait to play some more cricket at school.
