Our Harry is not only a great drummer he’a also really good at cricket:)

His hand-eye co-ordination on the drums isn’t in doubt so perhaps its no surprise then that Harry Judd is equally adept as a cricketer.
The McBusted star recently took part in a nets session with Sky Sports’ Ian Ward – where he engaged himself in some Test match-style batting.
And while Australia’s batsmen have been poor during this Ashes’ series, Judd showed them how it’s done as he impressed in front of the TV cameras.

Facing deliveries of varying lengths up to 100mph, the drummer looked a natural at the crease – swotting away several of the tennis balls and playing sensible leave shots.
Judd’s talents impressed Ward so much so that the Sky Sports analyst was full of praise for the musician as they looked back at replays of him in the nets.
The 29-year-old’s abilities with the bat have been well-documented in the past. Growing up at school Judd developed a reputation as a promising batsman but gave up cricket to pursue a career in music.
All-encompassing cricket almanac Wisden has even publicised about the drummer’s feats as a cricketer before.

In describing Judd, Wisden wrote: ‘Harry Judd, who scored 252 runs last season, left Uppingham to become a full-time drummer in the pop group McFly. The summer ended well for the side, with four wins in the last five matches, but even better for Harry Judd: McFly topped the UK singles chart twice, with Five Colours In Her Hair and Obviously.’
Australia captain Michael Clarke and his side will be hoping to replicate Judd’s solid technique when they face England at the Oval in the fifth Test beginning on Thursday.
Having seen the Ashes slip from their grasp at Trent Bridge, the tourists will be desperate to avoid losing the series 4-1.
