Cricket Training, Fitness and Injuries / Re: sciatica down left side
« Last post by potzy248 on Yesterday at 11:30:05 PM »
Had it for years and had surgery on it this year. Microdiscectomy, best thing I did. Fairly common procedure now and I was up walking an hour after surgery and back to work after 4 weeks. I also now do yoga everyday and that has been a god send especially for tight hamstrings which make back pain worse.
Before that, anti-inflams with pain killers helped but never stopped the pain completely.

Fancy this custom profile? It's one of Matt's...

It looks lovely but Iíve got my usual profile Iíve used for a while now and that would be far too light for me Iím normally between 2.10-12 depending on the pickup

It's the application that gets me - I know that batsmen's strike rate has massively increased over the last few years, but there has to be some sort of tactical or match awareness within some of them players.  I reckon at least 4 of them were out playing at balls they could have easily left.

Like I said earlier, I'm a Jennings fan, but to fence at a chest high ball at that point of the innings is ludicrous - no need to score runs or try and force it.  The Root one as well, as Captain, is indefensible.

Positive brand of Cricket

Counter attack

Put the pressure on the bowler

Not indefensible in the modern mind sadly

Iíve noticed his bat looks awfully small for his size, must be the way he likes it

Mix between the Aura and Xero. Weighs about 2lb7.5 , 40mm edges , 60mm spine , SH in Players grade.
Wow, how much?  If you don't mind me asking?  Did you just see it there and pick it up, or did you ask for something along those lines?  Always think an offset edge looks great, reminds me of safbats.
Your Cricket / Re: Your 2018 Season
« Last post by stevat on Yesterday at 09:13:25 PM »
I've now asked to spend the last 2 weeks of the season in the seconds. I want to have a decent game or two before going overseas, and will definitely get more of a bat and bowl in the 2s even though I'm good enough to do more in the 1s. Former club skipper who helped with winter nets is disappointed with how little opportunity I've been given with the bat, so I'm hopeful of getting a few runs last two weeks plus a game for Frogs before I fly.
Best of luck dude, go well.

He posted a pic on Instagram at the start of the series.

Kit looks good, comments on that post, less so.  Some incredible (awful) stuff on there, especially given as we likely know only a very small facet of the actual truth.
