First-Class Head Coach Reveals: The 3 Elements it Takes to Become a Cricketer

Filed in:

Toby Radford knows what it takes to become a professional cricketer.

He is the new Head Coach of Glamorgan County Cricket Club. He's also coached for the ECB, West Indies, Middlesex and Berkshire. He's coached talented players who have made the grade, and those who fell before the challenge.

So when I sat in his office at the SWALEC stadium in Cardiff recently, I had to ask him, "what advice would you give to a young player who wants to impress the coach of a professional cricket team?"

Here is what he said.

Make One Simple Change to Nets to Improve Your Twenty20 Results this Year

We stood in silence. Blinking at each other.

I had just called a break in Twenty20 training and brought all the 1st XI boys in to see how they thought they were doing.

"So then, it looks like we're set?" I offered to them, hoping that it would draw a response. Nothing was followed by more nothing. Which was then followed by a long silence.

I tried again, hoping this would be identified as a question, rather than an exclamation that we were perfect and training was cancelled for the next 10 weeks.
