What's the biggest barrier to success in your cricket team?

It's not facilities or money, and it's certainly not ability.

No. The biggest barrier is time.

You and the others in your team don't have time to work for hours on making technical changes or planning strategies. We all have huge restrictions ranging from work commitments to family to other leisure activities.

It's rare to find the school player with the time and motivation to spend 3 hours a day working on a minor technical error. You will never see a club team give up a week to go on a training camp.

As a result things deteriorate.

Form comes and goes because practice is meaningless.

Games that should be won get thrown away.

Fielding standards are at best mixed and at worst embarrassing.

Young players stop developing and get stuck in a rut.

Playing cricket stops being fun.

There is another way to play

Yet it doesn't have to be like that.

We have all played against teams who seem to field like demons, bat with style and bowl tight lines all day. Every player seems to have a crucial job to do and goes about doing it.

Imagine being that team instead of getting beaten by them.

Think how good it will feel to be part of a winning side and enjoying your cricket. A successful team mean successful players and successful players are able to achieve their aims in cricket; whether you are the 13 year old with ambitions to become a professional or the 45 year old just wanting to enjoy winning games of cricket before you finally hang up your boots.

It's possible.

With the right tactics, planning and preparation any side from the lowly club 5th XI up can excel at their level.

And that is exactly what you get when you buy this course.

I've played and captained non-professional teams and I know outside of the pro game have to pick our battles and do the things that give us the biggest return in the smallest time.

I'll show you the secrets I have learned through over 20 years of playing cricket:

  • The one simple trick from first-class cricket you can use to make players fearless.
  • Why selection is about more than picking bowlers and batsman.
  •  4 proven ways to get more runs from your top batsman.
  • Bowling tactics from the professional game that work just as well in club cricket.
  • Tricks to instantly improve fielding standards, and keep raising them in the long term.
  •  What to do when your plans go wrong.
  • The art of communicating outside of formal meetings.

It's information that you simply cannot get unless, like me, you have built up years of experience playing at both club and first-class level cricket.
