I am fairly new to playing the game, dad used to play years ago, and apart from that I have had no experience in playing cricket. Last year I joined my girlfriends dads team, and played a few friendlys, done some bowling as well and really enjoyed myself. At Xmas my whole family brought me everything I need, you name it i have it, ready for the new season which starts in 2 weeks.
The thing is, I think I have done to much reading up and watching you tube clips, as all of a sudden my confidence has been shot to pieces, and I am dreading facing fast balls.
How can I ensure this confidence, which I had last season, returns without the fear of being hit by the ball, or making a fool of myself in games.
Thank you in advance for your comments
