Sam Lavery, Mark Garaway and David Hinchliffe discuss Gary Palmer's coaching of Alastair Cook and what it means for the ECB coaching system. Does having a "secret" coach really add up to a failure of the system?

Plus, the team talk about how to hit back of a length balls outside off stump, and dealing with the thorny issue of being a fast bowler who is wayward. It's a classic problem but the answer is all in the show.

Is there a better cricketing way to spend half an hour? No!

What is Cricket Talent?

What is Talent? It's obvious, right?

At the outset of my coaching career, I was asked by a good friend to assist him with a team that he had just taken on. The organisation that he was working for was making the transition from being run by committed volunteers to becoming more professional. Keith had to move things forward whilst being politically savvy.

We came across a very impressive 15 year old batter. He was brave, got behind the ball, had a simple method that looked transferable higher up the levels yet he could hardly hit the ball off the square.

Beat This Practice Paradox to Become a Cricketer

The best way to become a better cricketer is to train in an way that is comfortable, but also challenges you to improve.

Is it possible to achieve both these aims at the same time?


We are often told as cricketers to "get out of the comfort zone" when trying to improve: Push hard, give everything you have. It's the stuff of motivational posters from Nike. That said, I'm also willing to bet you have seen the best improvements when you have been comfortable, relaxed and confident.

Hers how you can set yourself up to work harder than ever while feeling happy about it.

Turn Chaotic Nets into Performance Sessions with Just One Coach

How can one man coach a whole club?

This question is one that many a coach has been confronted with over the years. You've just been offered a senior coaching role at a new club. With visions of one-to-one discussions with batters, technical drills for bowlers, ongoing assessments and fitness development programs, your creative brain is firing.

Soon after, reality hits.

You’re coaching all four teams. They all train during the same two hour session once a week. Many will come and go at different times, and of course they all have a world of different issues they want to work on.

Oh, and you're on your own.

No assistant, no helpers, and no parents who you used to call upon when you were working with the juniors.

Don’t despair, there are still a few ways for you to make your sessions productive as long as you and your players can work to some simple guidelines.
