Starting to get back into it for the upcoming season with juniors grading, so had a bowl at some of the higher-level U/16s players we've got, focussing on finding weaknesses and keeping them quiet in the nets and seeing how they dealt with it. It was coming out reasonably well, which was nice.
Had a hit as well, without any protective gear. One of the relatively quick U/16s bowling at about 3/4 pace, one of the quicker first year mens bowling some erratic off spin, and my dad trying to find a groove with his Philander-style bowling. Incidentally the best bowler on show was the U/10s kid bowling massive indippers at me. If he's still doing that in 5 years, he'll be damn near unplayable.
I wasn't quite middling it, but my footwork was promising and I slapped a couple of cover drives -- always a good sign ahead of pre-season training. Cut shot still my weakness though.
