Cricket Show 306: Competition Winner

This week's winner of the Cricket Show podcast question competition is Dino. He wins a free coaching course from PitchVision Academy.

The winning question was,

"The biggest problem I have faced is overcoming the fear of the ball. This fear is insidious and try as you might, you can never fully extinguish it. It sits at the back of your mind, created by all of the painful experiences that you've had over the years of playing cricket and comes out when you don't want it to. It's there when you bat and face the bouncer, it's there when you bowl and have the ball hit back hard at you, and it's there when you field at short leg or just about anywhere on the ground. It keeps you from taking half-chances and slows your reactions and hinders your game. I find it amazing to watch international players who have no fear of the ball whatsoever and put their bodies in the line of fire, day in and day out. So how does one overcome this most basic mental hurdle and improve his/her game?"

How to Use Matches to Inspire Awesome Cricket Solutions

It's been an exceptional start.

Millfield School started the cricket season this week with two unbeaten Festival wins in the Under 15's and Meyers XI (U18's). We have seen lots of evidence of the winter work paying dividends. A number of players have hit personal best scores or wicket hauls.

However, the rigours of match play exposed a couple of glaring holes in the U15s bowling attack from both a mental and tactical perspective. This forced Steve Wilson (Assistant Coach) and me to think on our feet.

In the first game of the festival, our bowling attack conceded 22 wides in only 50 overs.

Keep a Training Log to Improve Your Cricket

Filed in:

We often say cricket is a mental game.

We often say measured training breeds success.

One perfect tool to handle these things is a training log.

The problem is, most of us don't think of logging things in cricket. We turn up, train, play and repeat. Of course, this is an effective way to improve, but is it really the best way?
