    Haha, unbelievable.

    As pointed-out in the Rachin -The Kiwi wonderkid thread, such things aren't neccessarily any pointer whatsoever as at such a young age little means anything.

    But even so - I barely remember so much as a single event of my life at 3 years of age - never mind being able to hold a bat as skillfully as that.

    I am amazed that not only has someone taught him the basics of the game in such an orthodox correct manner but that the young man has imbibed it. Thats difficult for the orthodox grip is very awkward initially for everyone and so much so that today most coaches give it short shrift.

    No one has rated him TC. Just look again, the word I have used for him is 'cute'. Of course, he is not a great star of the future or anything like that on the basis of that video but he is amazing in how he has followed whatever he has been taught.

    By the way, when I was first coached at 15, I dont remember my coach touching how to play short pitched bowling for at least 3-4 months !! So intent was he on ensuring that I got the grip, the stance, the forward movement, the shoulders, elbow, leaning into the shot, tow pointing to the off, transfer of weight etc etc correct.

    He did it by not letting me face proper bowling through out this period but just chucked the ball at me from 15 yards till I got all that hammered into me and my grip, stance, backlift etc became second nature.

    Maybe his father doesn't know backfoot play as well as he knows frontfoot or maybe he doesnt want to start that yet. Maybe the child is not playing that well enough to be posted on the net

    I also saw another video of a 5 year old child, might be Australian I think (from the unorthodox grip), who was also bowled some short ones.

    His first chance average took a severe beating after he hit the first ball straight back in the air to the bowler. I stopped watching after that as it means nothing.

    I find it verging on sickening but I have my own opinions on how to raise kids and how to coach. Im not saying this is wrong, just against my beliefs.

    Sarcasm is so hard to convey over the net.

    I've been waiting for a chance to use this smiley but none has been forthcoming so I'll put it here for no reason whatsoever.
