This isn't batting from the MCC coaching book

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.
