Last game, I missed like 3 or 4 very easy dabs through the slips, to a spinner, extremely annoying but can't do anything about it afterwards, tried to kept my composer...

Very important to keep one's composer.

What I've found with a lot of younger players is that they're simply taking their eye off the ball at the very last second, try to keep it simple of him and like people have said to talk to himself. I still do this now and I'm 40.
I repeat to myself
Reset (take guard, and forget about last ball)
Balance
eyes level
watching
go (When it's there to be struck)

That's what works for me, he may come up with something that works for him, But it helps I find.


If in doubt find him, getting him some 1-2-1 coaching.

Problem is shot selection. Which self respecting batsman would play a cut when you can easily switch-hit-pull the same ball? ;)

Thanks everyone- all sorted.

So in the end I decided against telling him to switch hit pull.

He played again tonight- under 11s this time, so the bowling was ....erm...erratic. He was disappointed with his 8*, but actually played very well, got on the front foot and drove- just seemed to hit the fielders a lot. (He did take 2 catches behind and a run out though, so that was ok)

Thanks for all the help.
