Title: 1 Year Progress

Thought i'd share this video here as its crazy to see how far i've come in the last year!
The first 30 seconds or so of this video (when im in a white shirt) is from this time last year
The last 30 seconds in a blue shirt is yesterday

The season before that first video i was averaging 6.22, and then this year i averaged 22.5.

I've worked hard on getting myself at the ball and not being scared of it (you can see i was terrified of the ball in the first video)

I still have a lot to work on: not letting my bottom hand take over, not dragging it from outside off to legside, trying to move my feet outside off a bit more

But overall i thought it would be interesting to show what 2 hours of batting practice a week does for a year!

Good on you mate, that's an impressive improvement! Plenty of people set out to do that and not many manage it so fair play. See if you can keep the rate of improvement going and average 81.39 next year ;)

haha! My realistic aims for next year will probably be to push that average up to 30 and score at least three 50's!

What is your bat weight?

This one is a 2'7 Red Inker

@NT50 great progress there. what did you do through the year, what kind of plan did  you follow?

Didn't really have a plan. Me and my mate just went to Cricket Asylum every week for a couple of hours! He's a seriously good player and did a good job of giving me small tips and hints but letting me work out what was best for myself

This is why I come on the forum, fantastic improvement. Keep it up 👍

Cheers mate!

Well done mate great stuff to see that massive improvement

Outstanding, the difference between the two videos is incredible - sure a lot of hard work went into it!
