Kyle Mills seeking to ‘improve cricketing skills’ through ‘experienced seamers’

Sydney: New Zealand’s top-ranked one-day international bowler Kyle Mills is desperate to improve his cricketing skills, despite approaching 34.

In recent weeks, the Auckland right-armer has had three highly experienced seamers helping his side, and he says he`d be "nuts" not to gain any advice he could off them.

As part of the Auckland Aces` Champions League campaign, Mills was able to lean on former Zimbabwean spearhead Heath Streak, the side`s bowling coach.

"I really enjoyed working with him, being a seam bowler and someone I could talk to about how he went about his game etc," quoted Mills, as saying.

The Black Caps now have Mills` former team-mate Shane Bond as their bowling mentor, while retired Sri Lankan left-armer Chaminda Vaas has also come in to help, the report said.

"When you get the opportunity to work with guys like that you take it. I`m a guy who`s always looking to improve my cricket,” Mills added.
