This weekend one of the biggest sports days will be taking place across the country. I Am Team GB has been organised by ITV and the National Lottery to encourage people to try a new sport.

In the run up to the event we sent our presenter Stacey Foster to have a go at playing cricket. She received coaching from former England player Lydia Greenway through the charity Chance to Shine which helps to provide cricket coaching to children across the country.
