IM feeling no team spirit
Im a 14 year old playing u19 for my school in Jamaica. I was on the team for batting and bowling but now im just on it for batting. When i play for my club they encourage me to give the ball flight ( i bowl leg spin). I was doing well over the summer at my club but since i went back to school my coach and teammates say i should bowl my leg spin flat thats kinda making me bowl too short and now they are not bowling me at all. How do i please my coach and teammates im often discourage by them and feel like an underdog being the youngest in the team. Im 14 and they are 19, 18, 17 so they are a lot stronger than i am they tease me about not being able to run fast or being able to hit a six they rarely encourage me and i feel like im by myself. Any tips for me I think its affecting me psychologically and not letting me perform to the best of my abilities.
