    What unique ways do you practice your cricket.

    Hey everyone,

    This is the first time I have ever posted in this forum. So to get the ball rolling I though I might just ask a simple question.
    How do you practice your cricket. The reason I ask this is after reading a great book called "First Tests" it's about some of Australia's greatest cricketers and how they trained when they were kids.

    What I do for practice when I can't go to the nearest cricket nets. I work on my batting by myself. However I use a stick that I find lying on the ground and a couple of "dead" squash balls and work on my technique. I recently posted an example of it on Youtube for my cricket coach to watch.

    Link is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUK1HTCvr18

    If you ended up watching the video. Thank you and apologies for the quality. I was resting the camera on a shoe.

    Not really unique but practising in front of a mirror does wonders. Just ten minutes a day is enough.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    I used to practice against underarm spin to prepare for pitche with square turn and unpredictable bounce. Worked a charm because it conditioned me to stay low in my stance.

    Good time to work on your wrist strength if you are alone.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Batting in the shower prepares one for wet conditions.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    I remember I used to practice batting by placing a ball inside a sock and hanging it in the ceiling with a rope

    Helps you cope with an uncovered sticky if you ever come across one, so to speak.

    Used to do this a lot. Love practicing leg glances then turning around and flicking it again and again until I got dizzy or the rope brushed my head/shoulder and ****ed it up. Got to 40 once iirc
