CRICKET JOBS: National Development Manager - Emirates Cricket Board

Filed in:

Closing date: 20th August 2014

It is a very exciting time for Cricket in the UAE.  The national team recently competed in the ICC World T20 in Bangladesh, and it has also qualified for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 to be held in Australia and New Zealand. The Under 19 team has also played in the World Cup hosted in the UAE in the last few months.

On the back of all this success it is critical that a genuine legacy is left from the UAE’s involvement in these global competitions, and the need for a skilled manager to direct the national development operation has been identified.

Use Nets to Better Grow Your Mental Toughness for Cricket


That's the difference between a net session and a game.

In nets you can roll your arm over, or knock the ball about for 10 minutes and have some fun. Even the best managed nets lack the context of a real game. That means there is no chance for you to develop your mental toughness skills.

Which is kinda a problem. You have to teach yourself how to deal with pressure when you are under pressure.

Cricket Show 268: Competition Winner

Filed in:

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

The winning question was:

"I bat in the upper order for my team and I focus a lot on running as hard between the wickets as possible. In the beginning I focus on taking quick singles but as the innings goes on, there are more of 2's and 3's. I sometimes tend to get stuck at either ends because of not being able to judge whether to take the next run or not while the fielders are chasing the ball. How and how early should you make the call of taking a run? Due to this I am also not able to communicate effectively with my partner and we are getting run out because of late calling. How can I solve this?"

Listen to the panels answer to his question here.
