Cricket Show 264: Competition Winner

Filed in:

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

The winning question was:

"In the IPL this year we have seen some incredible chases, again, from the likes of de Villiers, Faulkner and Dhoni and every time I wonder to myself how do they keep calm every game under the pressure and the expectation of having to take their team over the finishing line? Also after seeing the Mumbai Indians chase 190 in 14.4 overs largely due to Anderson's 95*, is it the situation the players are in that allows them to free up and go for it?"

The Buttler Factor: How Extreme Talent Identifies Itself

In my roles with Hampshire, Somerset, Ireland and now Millfield School I have seen a significant number of talented 12 and 13 year old cricketers. There has only ever been 1 player who I predicted would play International cricket from all those promising players.

His name is Jos Buttler.

The Art of Mankading: The Comprehsive Guide to This Cricketing Controversy

Filed in:

Is there anything that divides opinions more than "mankading"?

Whatever you opinion, there are some important coaching lessons we can glean.

3 Skills Every Cricket Coach Should Secretly Work On

Most players think coaching is easy: You rock up, set out some cones, do some drills and go home. While that's part of the story, there are certain skills the coach needs to practice to be effective.

But as coach you don't want to waste practice time by working on your own skills. Besides, you have enough pride to want to make it look easy and effortless.

It's time to get to the ground early, or on a non-training day, and work on your secret yet effortless practice skills. Your player won't thank you directly, but they will notice how much better their catching and batting has got as a result.
