The England and Wales Cricket Board is the governing body of cricket in England and Wales and has recently shared our exciting vision to make Cricket a game for everyone – played, watched and loved by more people. A key element of this strategy is to significantly grow and diversify participation in the game.  This includes a focus on attracting new players and participants, both female and male, across a variety of formats and wider participation opportunities.  Critically, this will also demand a focus on inspiring children to take up a lifelong association with this game that so strongly fosters both their personal and physical development.

After this epic case study article, we got a comment from Facebook saying, "You could realistically be drilling/bowling close to 500 reps per week, which would get improvement.". Yet our case study players averaged a mere 38 reps per week, despite putting in 20 hours of sessions. The highest in any one week was 114. Miles away from 500.

Have we wasted our time?

More importantly, are you wasting your time if you can't put in 500 reps a week?

Use "Power Positions" to Throw Harder with Less Injury Risk

We had a wonderful throwing based question from Peter on the podcast recently. Peter was coming back from injury of the shoulder and looking to build a throwing technique which would take pain away from that area.

This is a superb principle for cricket too.
