Filed in:

Jordan Finney is a cricket coach and sport psychology degree student. In this article he talks about talent and hard work.

All coaches have the story: The kind of player that doesn’t set the world alight but is a great "fill in" and cracking team guy.

They are often overlooked in favour of the "natural".

How to Bat During a Horrifying Innings Collapse

I know you don't like to think about it - nobody does - but there will be times where your innings has collapsed and you are at the crease. If you have the right approach, you can see this as your moment to shine.

Picture the scene in your mind: The let's say the score is 140-7 in 40 overs.

There are 10 to go and you are batting first. You know a winning score on this ground is close to 230. Numbers nine, 10 and 11 are all tail-enders who can hang about but are not going to score a match winning innings.

You have two options.

Remove the Queue from High Catching Drills

Filed in:

One of the most frustrating things in coaching is a line of cricketers standing in a queue waiting for their turn.

While watching other people play sport from the close vantage point of a queue can be fun, getting involved is much more productive and it also seems like a pretty good way to improve.
