How Moving House Reminds Me of Great Fielding Plans

I'm moving house. While I was chucking out all sorts of rubbish in preparation, I stumbled across a fielding outline document.

The file underpinned England's fielding team at the 2007 World Cup. I put it together with key fielders within that group which included Paul Nixon, Paul Collingwood and Jimmy Anderson.

Extra Man: How to be a Stand In at Higher Cricket Levels

Filed in:

It was 8pm on Friday night. Ryan's phone buzzed with a new Facebook message.

"We have had a drop out, can you play in the first team tomorrow?"

The young man's heart sank. He knew what that meant: In the second team he could enjoy a jolly 40 overs at home, getting a bat and a few overs with the ball. In the firsts he is a utility: a fielder, batting at seven or eight and no chance of bowling.

Plus the game is a 40 minute drive and ten overs per innings longer. He is supposed to be going out Saturday night!

He grudgingly accepts because he is a team man. He knows his afternoon of cricket will be wasted.

Cricket Show 271: Competition Winner

Filed in:

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

The winning question was:

"I am a 17 years old off spinner. It is off season in Australia right and wet too. Because of that I mostly end up bowling at my own house in front of the mirrors. I have tried several actions and seeing various actions of off spinners (Swanny, Saqlain, Lyon) on YouTube I am trying to perfect myself. However after several days I start questioning my action and run up I was happy with. Due to this I'm always self conscious and can't sleep properly (no joke) Is this harming me? If it is how can I get settled on a good action? How do you gather momentum from runup to your point of delivery?"

Listen to the panels answer to his question here.

You Might get a Kick Out of My Weekend Batting Revelation

Filed in:

Isn't it great when you find something that clicks in your game?

This week I missed the usual training session at my club, so I arranged to get to the ground early to "have a net" with a couple of other guys in the team.

As you know my feelings about nets, you know how I am not keen to just have a hit, but I hoped it would be better that going into the game totally cold.

As there were just two of us to start, and neither of us bowl to first team standard, we got out the bowling machine.

As you know my feelings about bowling machines, you know I would much prefer real bowling, but that wasn't an option.

Yet, that 20 minutes was a revelation that will give you quite the kick.

Are you born to cricket captaincy or can you learn the skills?

Mark Garaway, David Hinchliffe and Sam Lavery team up again to discuss the issue and give some practical advice.

Then, the team answer some listener questions about losing sleep due to off spin technical issues (literally) and low tech ways to monitor performance. That discuss also leads to some brilliant nickname chat. Not to be missed!
