A coach can tell a lot about a cricketer by observing the attitude a player takes towards stretching. Often players will demonstrate their focus by preparing diligently in the basic components of training such as stretching.
Stretching is often overlooked but it should be a foundational component of your preparation and recovery.
We’re not talking a rushed 5-10 min stretch before training but consistently integrating three to four, 20-25 minute sessions per week. This may sound a lot but be creative and integrate your routine into that time when you're watching TV or when you’re not batting in a match.
