Quick Tip: How To Deal With Criticism

Filed in:

Nobody likes criticism. We are wired to treat negative feedback as a threat. We get defensive and often dont listen to the answer, even if the critique is correct and useful.

So, how do you better take criticism and use it to move forward?

Ask This One Question To Better Know Your Cricket Team

I am building a new team at Millfield School this year. This is a huge challenge for the coach, captain and the players who will make up that team.

Whilst I have worked individually with a couple of the players in the one to one programme, I am starting from scratch with 9 of the group. The brutal reality is that we have a 10 week period together to form a team and to work towards playing some really good cricket together.

With that, I was searching for a way to get a deeper understanding of the players within the squad so I "borrowed" a great trick from Olympian swimmer Euan Dale.

What Can This Depressed Changing Room Story Tell You?

Filed in:

Here's a story that might make you think.

Not long ago I was playing in an away match in a team with a lot of younger players. Unusually, I was late and arrived close to the start time. We had already tossed and were about 10 minutes from going into the field.

How To Bowl A Yorker

Yorkers are game changing balls.

Any bowler. On any pitch. At any time. You turn an innings around with the use of a good yorker or two. Ian Pont thinks they are so important that mastering one gives you a blank cheque for the IPL. But it's not just at the end of a Twenty20 game where they are destructive.

A yorker is a difficult ball to negotiate, even for well set batsman. You can bring it any time you want to upset the guy at the other end. You can use it to break a big partnership in longer games just as effectively as you can keep runs down at the death.

So if they are so useful, why don't we see them used more often?
