Why Coaching Is Making You a Worse Twenty20 Bowler
By Ian Pont, PitchVision Academy Fast Bowling Coach
Everyone has played in short format cricket where the emphasis is on wacking the bowlers out of the park. Isn’t it frustrating that nobody teaches bowlers how to handle this intense pressure of Twenty20 where a good ball can go sailing back over your head for 6?
The odds are stacked in the favour of the batsmen. Every swing is not just a clobbering of the ball, but also to your ego.
It’s never been more terrifying and exciting standing at the top of your mark to take on the batsman.
You are on your own.
Traditional bowling methods don’t work.
What are you going to do next?
Do you feel paralysed in fear of the blacksmith at the other end with the glint in his eye and no thought of mercy?
It’s certainly not your fault you are in this ever-decreasing circle. Traditional coaching has always focused on preparing players for longer games. Twenty20 has overtaken things but the coaching stays infuriatingly stuck in the old days.
The idea that you can pitch the ball up on the off stump, swing it away and get a nick is about as out of date as waxing your moustache. But that’s what the coaches keep teaching week after week because they don’t know anything else.
Until you learn the new ways of doing things, you will stay stuck with those coaches. You may as well be in the 1950’s when all twenty20 meant was an extra 5 minutes at the tea break.
That’s alright if you are happy stuck playing social cricket with no ambition beyond having a run about on the field. I know your ambition extends beyond that and you are itching to become a better bowler.
With the right tactics and mindset, things change dramatically. Imagine how it would feel if you could bowl successfully in the short game. You can do it by buying Beating the Odds
Take the Indian Premier League, the world’s richest cricket league.
Put simply, a bowler who is capable of bowling 24 yorkers at pace can write their own cheque for playing in an IPL franchise. Just how incredible would it feel to turn out in front of 80,000 at Eden Gardens bowling your side to victory with the skills you start learning in this course?
