Mark in his column shows that the problem wasn't hitting the line as he outlines in analysis of Ben Stokes bowling but a case of doing it when it matters and when the body and mind are maybe not working at their optimum.
This made me think about how we train currently. Typically I would warm my players up, explain the objectives, get into the practice and then culminate in a game scenario or net session before a review. My bowlers would get loose, go through their allotted drill and ease down towards the end.
So Mark puts a great case forward for shaking this up.
I'm thinking shortening the time we spend in the middle section where we are tuning our actions making it more intense, then breaking to a S&C session followed by a scenario based challenge.
What are your thoughts on this?
