Hey guys, I'm new here
I am 17 and really keen on getting into competitive cricket. A lot of you might think 17 is not too old, but I am not sure.
Obviously I am never going to play for Australia or even my state, but it would be awesome to get into some grade cricket. I have some friends play and they are pretty good, however they have been playing competitively at some level for 5 or so years, whereas I have never played past backyard cricket except a bit of indoor cricket a few years ago.
I am not someone who is naturally gifted at sport or naturally gifted at cricket. I'm one of those guys who always does well at backyard cricket against others who don't play, but gets belted by friends who play cricket.
I was just wondering what you guys reckoned, and if you had any advice on how to go about getting into some cricket.
