WITH THE BALL
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.
