As we frequently discuss the way in which we can make batsmen look silly against spin bowling, you better be good at playing spin when you go in to bat. There is nothing more embarrassing than being outfoxed by your opposite number.

Here are a few tips in batting against spin. (Only fair, right?).

Ask the Readers: Swing Bowling Against a Breeze?

Phil sent in a question and, frankly, it's one I thought the PitchVision readers would be able to help.

Here it is:

"Having played league cricket 26 years and taken a wicket or two, I have now moved city. The ground where I now play is very open and there is a strong breeze blowing from left to right. As an away swing bowler I have quickly accepted that I cannot swing it away to a right-hander when the wind is blowing across. Is this incorrect of me? Of course, I would assume a high class swing bowler would have no trouble but I am unsure whether it is possible or not"

So, what do you think?

How to Stay in Form

We have all had a purple patch. The runs and wickets flow effortlessly. You wonder how it could all be so easy.

In fact it's so effortless that many cricketers fall into the trap of thinking that this is the time to do less. On the surface it makes sense: Something is working so just keep doing it. Relax, reign back on the training and coast along on the wave of good form.

The #1 Factor in Tendulkar's Batting Success

Speaking at an Karnataka State Cricket Association event in Bangalore recently, Sachin Tendulkar was talking about selection.

For him the key to finding the next Tendulkar wasn't about stats.

It wasn't about textbook technique.

Or immense power and timing.

Cricket Show 225: Competition Winner

Filed in:

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

The winning question was:

"I play for a relatively small club with three Saturday teams, but our colts section from U13 down to U7 is massive and just getting bigger! However, as these colts get older, there isn't space in the 3rds for them, and if they do play they don't get the opportunities to fully show their skills. I was thinking of starting a developmental side next season, and am asking for any advice on how to do so, such as the standard of opposition matches should be against, and the make-up of the side - like the balance between senior and junior players - to allow us to be competitive whilst blooding youngsters."

Listen to the panels answer to his question here.
