Opening Batting - Getting Bowl...

Hi I open the batting for my team and have been getting bowled a substantial amount of times more often then not early in the innings Generally a straight ball/ in swinging to the right hander.I am coming forward to it but seems to misjudge it and ball is generally going between bat and pad although I am thinking I have it covered. Take guard on middle and bat one foot in the crease.Thanks for your help Regards

question concerning batting and general

how do you practice your batting skills,by the way ive done cricket for just over a year now but I haven't been on top of my cricket skills as much as ive also had other commitements such as karate and aslo I had a fondness for badminton during the last winter so the only time I trainedwas really the last years seaon but the traing I did was self made and was in the park as my school cricket team cant really afford enough equipment to train the rest of the team (The team is makeshift by the way).all I did in the park was bowling to my friend who would devlop his batting skills by just tying to find a way of hitting the ball so this is th e reason why im asking you first how can I develop my batting skills and secondly what drills do you do individually and as a team which makes you and your players good?

Hi all - have any of my fellow coaches spent any time running middle practice (outdoors) scenarios eg redeeming a batting collapse, batting against really defensive fielding, running between the wickets under pressure etc. Would appreciate your experiences.

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
