We all accept the importance of a warm up to prepare your body and mind for the game if you play any serious level of cricket from school upwards.
So how does a modern cricket club do it?
We looked at the hour or so that our case study club, Watsonian CC, took to warm up in a league match in Edinburgh.
Watsonians are lucky in that they have both a qualified strength coach and a former international in the side, both playing as amateurs. This means both the physical warm up and the skill work is covered in a way that gets the most from the players.
Any side can copy or customise this warm up safe in the knowledge that it works. It helps prevent injury, prepares you mentally and physically for the first ball of the match.
The video covers general warming up, stretching and mobility and pre-game skill work.
