    Hi Mark,

    Hi Jim

    Thanks for your comment. It would be great to have the opportunity to work with you on a wicketkeeping program.

    It sounds like a program of High Performance Individual Coaching sessions may be the best way to approach the situation given the level you are playing at. We are available every day of the week and I will get in touch with you by email with more details.

    Catch up soon.

    Cheers.

    hi mark

    im a spin bowler, prodominantly orthodox, i also bowl a doosra, a leggy, a straight ball and a range of other slightly different deliveries. my coaches and other elders of my club suggest that its best that i stick to one thing only and not worry about all the others.. is there anything you can suggest that may help??

    Hi Charlie

    My view is that to maximise your effectiveness as a bowler you need to develop mastery over your stock ball. Your stock ball should be your best ball and the one you look to bowl at least 90% of the time. Perhaps the reason your are getting the feedback you are getting is that your advisors recognise that you need to develop this mastery. That said there is no reason for you not to develop mastery over your variation – who know where that may lead. Getting really good batsmen out takes skill, consistency, patience and subtle as opposed to obvious variation and with this in mind I have posted a link below to an article I have written for you to review.

    Good luck.

I was looking to get some quality sessions and expert advice in the off season and really come into the 2010/11 season as a new player.
    Is there any chance for some sessions in the off season? can you contact me with costs, details etc.
    Thanks Heaps Mark.

    Hi Mark,

    great to see you replying to everyone on your site and hope for the same here. My son is going to be nine and he believes he is an all rounder. If there is a possibility for a short term program for him I can play to come to birmingham or somewhere you ve an academic for a short term program for him. if you can send me the duration of course and the fee. At present he has an inclination to be a fast bowler and six down batsman.
