The closest I came to a home net was the concrete driveway.
Open the gates and bowl from the middle of the road. Sometimes Id have a good net with decent players. Mostly Id get the local kids to bowl with the offer of a pound if they got me out. Both with full pads and cricket ball.
Ive lost count of the number of hours I spent throwing either a cricket ball, tennis ball or golf ball against a wall for batting practice. I think that may be where my short backlift is from as there isnt time to throw the ball, get both hands on the bat and get a high backlift when you are only a few yards away from the wall.
If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits
