I spent ages in my teens watching cricket when it become big around 2005 and from watching the Bell cover drive, trott defence I would find myself shadow batting and just watching the slow motion replays and that really helped me become a much better player over the next few years.

You've used the right to disagree 😃
I learn glance shot from Javed Miandad, as I liked that shot.
I didn't have any sort of coaching av, so that was the only way at that time.
But that didn't mean I became a better batsman just because of that shot.
Civet drive is a shot, in my opinion, every good batter will have from the start in the armory.
Defensive play is a mental attitude.
And if I was coached, I'm sure I'd would have been much better cricketer 🙂

apart from that.. Butters is right, Participation won't come back until cricket is FTA.. streaming is doing wonders but the benefit won't be seen for years and needs to reach the younger people.

We used to play cricket at school in break time, all you need is a cricket or tennis ball and a cricket bat, prop a bag up to use as the stumps. Its not difficult at all and required zero adult oversight!

The difference was - we all saw cricket on FTA tv and thus felt inspired to play.

My lads school have banned cricket bats during breaks....they improvise using a shoe!   They are lucky as their head of PE plays cricket so they get to have sessions during PE and nets after school once a week - unusual for a secondary school these days as other local schools play no cricket at all.

good luck getting schools to allow people to smash tennis balls around the ground.. Could have someone's eye out... Elf and safety :)
