Planning on playing cricket
I mean what kind of man would I be if I didn't heed the call of my country in its darkest hour? :ph34r:
In all seriousness, soccer has been the sport I've played since I've been very young. I had a very bad knee injury (medial ligament) a few years back, and after several attempted comebacks, a recent (very bad) flare up has convinced me that my knees just won't be able to handle the sport anymore.
Trouble is I'm not happy with how bulbous my body is becoming, so I need some physical activity to keep things in balance. I'm not expecting a qualified medical opinion, but as a general rule how hard is cricket on the knees as a batsman? Not talking international standard dive at the boundary type cricket, I'd be pretty much looking at playing as amateur as it comes.
Secondly what would I be able to do in the off season to brush up my batting skills so I suck slightly less than necessary? Haven't picked up a bat since my teens ftr.
