David Hinchliffe - Director of Coaching
Gary Palmer, the PitchVision Academy batting coach, talks about the coaching idea that batting is a sideways game. If you would like coaching from Gary, check out CCM Academy.
We have all heard the coaching mantra: Cricket is a sideways game.
Good bowlers get side on in their action. Batsmen stand sideways at the crease.
For twenty years Sachin has been the epitome of a winning cricketer. Out of the hundreds of games and dozens of tournaments the little master has played in, the 2003 World Cup was perhaps the closest he has got to winning a global event.

Spin bowlers need understanding captains to bring the best out of them. Too many spin bowlers are lost due to poor captaincy decisions. This is especially true at junior level cricket during a player's formative years.
In modern cricket, the emphasis is all about scoring runs and big hits. Just look at the massive following of the Twenty20 form of the game. To satisfy this insatiable thirst for runs all the pitches are prepared flat and the boundaries are brought in.
Think of a big jar. An ordinary jar that once might have contained pickles or jam. It's empty now.
Piled next to the jar is a collection of rocks. There's nothing special about them but there is just enough to fill up the jar, so you put them in. The jar is full.
The number three position is the most difficult at any level. That's why the position is filled with the best player in the side: Richards, Bradman, Dravid.
What can we learn from these great names that can be taken into our own game?
