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?"
