The boy was about 17 years old. He loved playing cricket but knew he wasn't a natural with the bat.
But he had some grit. He wanted to improve.
Even better, there were plenty of people around willing to help with technical advice. So he walked down the net declaring,
"If you see me do anything wrong, let me know."
He did a lot wrong.
Like I said, he was keener than he was a natural ball striker. As instructed, the bowlers all gave their advice to him.
