JC writes about a new service: Internet cricket coaching from Watta Coach. Great for all cricket tragics around the world. Send in a video of yourself bowling or batting (or fielding?!) and they'll send you back a video of coaching advice:
Most interesting was the side-by-side comparison with Beau Casson's bowling action. I can see why Aussie cricketers have a plasma TV in the nets
- it's very useful (and fun, bordering on narcissistic) to see a replay
of your technique. Even better to compare it side by side with a Test
legspinner. I can immediately see how my bowling stride is too long -
fixing that has already improved my follow through.
Next is a series of drills explained by Freedman and Casson. I
haven't had a chance to try them out - I'll have to give them a quick
run through before the club's weekly net session tonight. Plenty of
homework to work on anyway.
Seems like a great idea to me. I wonder if they have advice for the carrom ball?
