Mark Garaway, David Hinchliffe and Sam Lavery get together for cricket banter and coach chat.

This week there is a good discussion on helping bowlers at nets do more than "just bowl". Then questions from listeners are answered. The topics on the table are batting backlift (or back swing) and staying on your toes while you field.

Listen for the deets!

Stop Panicking About Your Accuracy, It's Totally Fine.

Recently we have had a spate of spinners on PitchVision Academy worrying about their accuracy. From around the world, the same messages come through, "I bowl too full", "I bowl too many short balls", "I get taken off by the captain for bowling down the leg side".

Bowling Drills: Make the Most of Your Bowling Spell

Wouldn't it be handy to know the exact natural spell of every bowler? As a captain, coach or even bowler, you will be able to use your best time, and rest when you know you are tiring. Every bowler - no matter how fit - has a natural spell length.

Help Spinners by Using Associated Thinking

I basked in the sun at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton to watch Somerset take on Hampshire in the County Championship on Tuesday. It was Day one of four. The cricket was enthralling.
