Are You Coaching 'Towards' or 'Away'?

A few weeks ago I was asked to do a session with a top class player who had lost his 'mojo' against spin.

When I asked him to tell me about his plans for our time together he said,

"I don't want to feel shotless when the ball spins, don't want to feel as if I am going to nick it to slip or short leg and I don't want to be stuck in the crease".

Paul wanted to know something:

"What 3 courses should be the first to be purchased to start becoming a good all-round cricketer?"

It's true, there are a lot of online coaching courses, and we often get queries about where to start.

The truth is that everyone is in a different place, so it's hard to pick out an all-encompassing 3 courses that will satisfy everyone.

But, judging from both sales and feedback, I have had a go at coming up with the big three essentials that should help anyone play or coach better cricket.

Using Strategy Games to Bat Like Amol Muzumdar

Becoming the Ranji Trophy’s highest ever run scorer takes relentless patience. You learn to bat the opposition out of the game by waiting and picking off the weak bowling.

Amol Muzumdar, who is in a see-saw competition with Wasim Jaffer to finish with the highest run tally, knows his game in this way. He has a strategy and he sticks to it.

But what if you are just starting out as a batter; how do you learn to play your own way and emulate this success in professional cricket?

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

The winning question was:

"I'm a fast-medium bowler and have read your guide on getting 5-wicket hauls but they don't seem to work for me. I have played about 20 club matches and a couple of matches for my college. But a 5-wicket haul always keeps eluding me. The maximum no.of wickets in a match for me has always been two. Even a 3-wicket or a 4-wicket grab would've made me happy. Please help."
