This isn't batting from the MCC coaching book

These are the cutting edge drills and techniques - known only to professional level coaches - that can turn an ordinary batsman into a confident player against the turning ball. Just click buy on the right hand side to get started.

By Gary Palmer, PitchVision Academy Batting Coach

Wouldn't you, or the people you coach, love to stop looking foolish as another quality spinner rips through the defences, sending you back to the pavilion wondering what went wrong?

It's not your fault that this happens.

Chances are, if you have been coached at all on playing spin, you have only learned the copybook ways from the 1950s. But the old fashioned methods are as dusty as the books on the shelf they come from.

Players with limited techniques resort to playing favourite shots in all circumstances, slogging or rabbit-in-the-headlights defence. These options always fail: Slogging gets you out and blocking will just cause you to freeze the run rate.

Unless you access to a coach who knows how the professionals train (at professional level prices) you will never have been exposed to these methods.

Most coaches just learned the basics from a course years ago from information that was hardly cutting edge at the time. If coaching books cover playing spin at all it's only a short chapter with no drills or clear demonstrations.

Time to forget everything you learned (and start making runs)

Imagine if your techniques and tactics were so outstanding they allowed you to get your revenge on those deceptive twiddlers.

You walk out to the middle with the soaring confidence of one with precision technique. They wouldn't know what had hit them. Runs flow easily as you know which areas to score and the tricks to minimise your chances of getting out. The stress and fear are gone – and in your place is the knowledge you have won the battle.

How long would it take before you were known as a good player of spin? What opportunities would that present? Don't be surprised if closed doors become open ones.

Now you can take control. Click buy on the right hand side to take the course now.

This course -  The complete guide to effectively playing spin bowling - contains all the proven methods I show to the professional players that have taken over 20 years to research develop and perfect. You will discover:

  • The one change to foot position, not shown in any coaching book, that will revolutionise your front foot play against spin.
  • Low risk ways to improvise and stop yourself getting out through frustration.
  • Simple trigger moves that can explode your scoring rate in limited over situations.
  • Drills using only a few cones that can teach you the right muscle memory for a long hitting zone and increased timing.
  • How to use an almost-forgotten shot to increase your scoring rate against the ball turning away.
  • A revolutionary method of opening out your body to let you score around the ground.
  • The right and wrong ways to move down the wicket and hit over the top.

The information in this course is the same revolutionary drills, techniques and tactics that I, Gary Palmer, teach the students in my successful live CCM Academy sessions, for which people pay up to £1,500 each and many have gone on to use in county cricket.

Now you can have it for a fraction of that cost.
