WIRRAL cricketer Dan Hamm is urging his England teammates to learn from their mistakes after suffering a second successive tour loss against Pakistan last month.

The 19-year-old spinner was part of a 15-strong England Physical Disability squad in Dubai last month for a six-match Twenty20 and One Day International series with Pakistan.

And although Hamm and England put up a strong fight at the ICC Global Cricket Academy, they ultimately left with a sour taste in their mouths as they lost both series' 2-1.

Despite losing 4-2 overall, it was still an improvement on their maiden tour to Dubai to play Pakistan in 2012 when England's squad, which included Hamm, arrived home having suffered a 4-1 defeat.

However that was of little consolation to Hamm who insists he and his teammates should have had more to show for their efforts in the United Arab Emirates.

He said: "I enjoyed my time out in Dubai taking on Pakistan but I would have enjoyed it more if we had better results and I really feel like we should have.

"We were in winning positions for most of the games and we were about 80 per cent there, it was just that final 20 per cent that was missing.

"And in international cricket that 20 per cent is crucial and if you don’t put in the complete performance then you will fall short.

"What we need to make sure now is that we learn from our mistakes and don’t let it happen again, we need to move forward and be better at this level.

"We are still a relatively young side and we still have plenty of improving to do but we are going places, we just have to learn each time we play."

Despite the overall loss Hamm still ensured he shone in Dubai, ending with figures of 3-25 as he helped England level the Twenty20 series in the second game of the tour.

And Hamm, a former Bebington High Sports College pupil, was delighted to help put physical disability cricket on the map with the Twenty20 series streamed live on YouTube.

He said: "Despite the end result this tour was massive for physical disability cricket, especially with Twenty20 games live on YouTube.

"It is great to know that your friends and family are watching and that we are potentially taking the game to a wider audience.

"The coverage has been great and hopefully it can get bigger and better as we would love to be part of a World Cup in the future."
