I have been working on the machine for the past week or so about 20mins a session. Mainly working on playing straighter when the balls are on the stumps or in the corridor.
Heres a link of my most recent session http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFfj5tk56ws
Speed is set at 70mph(most balls were measured at 68 mph ,while others were 69-70,and a handful were 73-74 by a radar gun).
I had for some reason stopped getting low in my stance in the past few weeks but have started it back again and the shots are getting better. My main problem is that i cant seem to get my front foot to the side when the ball is on middle-leg ,leg stump thus resulting in me playing across the line. Any ideas on this?Should i open up?
Another problem is that im losing shape as the session progress(its about a 20min session of 20 overs,about 14mins of batting) because of my back starting to ache resulting in me no longer to hold still as the session progresses. Any ideas on how to get rid of this back fatigue?
Also i need to know how to watch EVERY SINGLE ball correctly as right now i forget to watch the ball very quickly in any net session. I remember it when i get in trouble and start doing it but not for long as i forget to watch the ball properly again.
And lastly , the bat is turning alot in my hands recently. What could be some reasons for this?
Though one improvement i think i have made is that my back lift is more consistent now and my bat is coming in a straight line consistently.
I will move up to 73-75mph when im fully comfortable against 70-72(currently working on).My end goal(3-4months from now) is to play 80mph relatively comfortably(front and back)
