Lee James, former NCO, explains his use of poetry and cricket

Lee James is taking part in the match between the Help for Heroes XI and the England Disability Team. He's a former NCO of the Royal Welsh Armoured Infantry Regiment.

Lee was injured in Afghanistan in 2010 and has subsequently discovered poetry - and cricket - as part of his recovery from PTSD.

Watch Lee's poignant video below as he describes how poetry gives him a "voice" and how joining the cricket team has allowed his confidence and social abilities to return.
