WITH THE BALL

Inside Sport - - Insider -

Fast bowlers gen­er­ally have bowl­ing loads; they’d prob­a­bly only bowl a max of eight overs. Spin­ners like my­self, de­pend­ing on how long the nets goes for, can bowl up to 15 overs if we’re in for a long ses­sion. As a bowler in the nets you’re just try­ing to make it as re­al­is­tic as pos­si­ble to bowl­ing dur­ing a game, hit­ting ar­eas on the pitch that you’ll be bowl­ing to­wards in the match.

Even though the nets is a prac­tice ses­sion, it’s still im­por­tant to be putting in 100-per­cent ef­fort with the ball. That’s the only way you’re go­ing to get bet­ter. You have to train the way you play. Hav­ing that hun­dred-per­cent at­ti­tude at train­ing is hope­fully go­ing to pro­vide you with a re­ally pos­i­tive mind­set when you go into a game, al­low­ing in turn for you to put in the same en­ergy at train­ing into the game.
