went for a net yesterday, lost all confidence, front foot, cuts and late cuts were fine, but hooking, sweeping and especially pulling was awful just kept getting hit, any ideas?
the shots you are struggling on need perfect timing nearly all the time, if its your first net then your timing is bound to be slightly out, try again next week and i think you should notice an improvement

Had my first net for about 4 weeks yesterday and everything felt fine, made a conscious effort to try and play straighter and not to drag as many balls onto the leg side and i didn't drag one all night so was pleased with the session.

Getting a bit bored of indoor practice now. Our outdoor still doesn't start for nearly another month.

After a lull the excitement has picked-up again with bowling machine making its way into the indoor nets. It is fast, frustrating (don't like the balls that are used. The bat looks like it has had chicken pox) but a still fun (when you look at others missing the ball by a mile)

Back went playing a pull shot last week, and have been flat on my back ever since. First game is 13th April, so fingers crossed I'm fit by then.

i've had quite a few sessions so far but i end up teeing off after only a few balls! im hitting the ball in the air too much and worrying about the first game, i think i just need to get my act together...

very true mate, the nets we use are fairly quick because of a wooden floor under a thin mat, but as soon as we get outside i'll be taking guard on a sponge cake!

Have slipped a disc so am out for a minimum of 6 weeks, which utterly sucks.

We bowled are opponents out for 94, bowled 6 overs, 2 maidens, 1 wicket, 7 runs. Didn't bat as we only lost the one wicket but have a Sunday team game tomorrow so hopefully a chance to have a bat.
