Test quick Josh Hazlewood will beam live into schools across the region on Wednesday as part of Cricket NSW's Country Blitz program.
The Bendemeer Bullet will be dialing in from Dubai where he is preparing for the resumption of the Indian Premier League.
Twenty-nine NSW cricketers will be involved in the annual event, which due to COVID-19 restrictions will again be delivered remotely, with up-and-coming batsmen Ryan Hackney joining Hazelwood as the allocated players for the Northern Inland.
As well as students, the participating cricketers, who also include test spinner Nathan Lyon, new NSW skipper Kurtis Patterson and Sydney Sixers captain Moises Henriques, will also speak with local cricketers and coaches in regional and rural towns from the Tweed, down to the Riverina and out to the Far West.
Henriques will also be calling in from Dubai and said in what has been a challenging time, while they can't get out to the community in person, it was great that they could still connect with schools and clubs online.
"Many of Australia's best cricketers have come from areas in regional NSW. The Country Blitz is one way for us as professional cricketers to ensure we keep inspiring the next generation of top cricketers from the country," he said.
In addition to the virtual school and cricket club visits, NSW Blues head coach Phil Jaques and NSW Breakers head coach Gavan Twining will participate in a free webinar for any coach based in regional or rural NSW at 6.30pm AEST.
At the same time there will be a free virtual Q&A specifically for girls aged 12-18 with WBBL players Sam Bates (Sydney Thunder) and Angela Reakes (Sydney Sixers).
