What Does Success Look Like?

One of the great coaching questions is "What does success look like?"

Millfield Under 15 managed to get themselves bowled out on Sunday for 75 against Gloucestershire CCC U15s. We had a shocker: 2 silly run outs, 2 players cutting balls on the stumps when the ball was keeping low and seemingly no clue of how to compile an innings on what was a early season slow and low pitch.

More Run Outs with This Fielding Drill Upgrade

Iain Brunnschweiler has a simple drill upgrade for you to get more direct hits.

Matches can be turned when you complete run outs: Direct hits will result in a wicket.

So it is important that you get your throws as close as possible to the stumps as often as possible. The problem is, when doing a throwing at stumps drill, we often simply use a 'hit or miss' outcome to gauge the success of the throw. This can result in a lot more misses than hits, especially in younger players. It's disheartening.

The good news is there is a simple way of setting more of a gauge to help understand progress and guide development.

Which Action Is Best for Bowling Faster?

Front on?

Side on?

Mixed?

Halfway?

There are many different positions a bowler can get in when he or she hits the delivery stride. Which one works best for generating pace?

How to Pick Length

The relationship is simple: The better you pick length, the better you are as a batsman. It's, at least, one third of the art of batting.

Yet, as a coach, I see many players struggle to pick length well. They hit balls in practice all day long and look technically sound. Then they go out in the middle and get caught playing forward to a back of a length ball, and spooning a simple catch up in the air.

People say things like "he's stuck on the crease", "he falls over" and "he's too defensive". While all these comments may be true, they are not the root cause. The root cause is often not picking the ball in time to get into the right position.

Do you recognise these symptoms in yourself?

Here's my solution.

This is a show about attitude. Mark Garaway, Sam Lavery and David Hinchliffe discuss the difference in approaching a problem as a chance to improve or a limitation. That simple switch could be enough to change your game.

On the technical side there are questions about red-green colour blindness, and when to stick with a technical change verses making another change after the first one isn't working out. Plus for coaches, there is plenty of talk abut coaching confidence in players who are self-depreciating.
