Or be like the madman I used to play football with - who would run a 10K 'for fun' then come play a full football match right after - and lift weights on the days you have cricket training and matches.

Realistically, if you are as you say getting older, it'll take longer to recover from any challenging exercise so just allow more time for recovery and it'll be fine.
That's more than madness! 😀
Couldn't have done that all, when I was 25!

But this question arises, do I totally stop lifting weight, even light weights?
@AJ2014 Have you thought about doing bodyweight exercises rather than weights? Push up, pull ups, etc. Press ups can be effective for muscle endurance training. Or alternatively please do one of the following:

1. Stop over thinking things. Pick up bat, feels good, see ball...hit ball.
2. Wood is a natural product. Leave it somewhere hot or near a radiator and it will lose weight. Leave it somewhere moist and cold and it will gain weight. Adjust where you leave the bat accordingly.
3. Please see point one.

I'm not a strong bodied person
I'll try to these exercises you've mentioned

Just start off nice and slowly.

3 sets of 10 etc. and then build up.

And don't over think.

I'll listen to you,
I've started cycling for my back, lower body and knees, and it makes a lot of difference, all positives

I am going to venture a guess and say that your bats are way too heavy for you. Nothing to be ashamed of - Gary Sobers used 2lb 2oz bats. Look at how light Kohlis bat looks when hes batting. Now compare his strength to yours.... I suggest going waaaay down in weight - like 2lb 6 or even lower. Should also be good for any back issues.

Thing is when you keep buying bats, because it's profile etc, you make harder to use actually the right weight or right bat. Bought 4 lighter bats under 2lb 8oz and then ventured into 2lb 9oz - 2lb 10oz, for their profiles.
And yes, their profile feels perfect for me, Ironically I feel the same for other 4🤔
Purpose for road cycling is getting fitter 😀

Thanks for sharing SD.
So after lifting light weights arm elbow and shoulder feel good, picking up bat later on the day or next day feels heavier, that's what might have been happening.
but then, if lifting not even light weights, then how will I get a stronger/arms? Not only batting, but for bowling and throwin the ball?

Assuming that your priority is cricket and you are trying to fit strenght and conditioning aound (as opposed to training being your focus) I would suggest not doing any training that will fatigue your muscles the day before a game.  After that, it is a question of your recovery time which factors like age, diet and quality of sleep will impact on.  I see no reason why you wouldn't be able to fit in 2-4 weights sessions a week during the season if you are playing at the weekend only.  Outside of the season is the opportunity to do a  lot of the fitness work you need for the season though when you aren't having to schedule it around playing commitments

A bat feeling heavier could just be a forum classic excuse for a new bat :)

There is a great app for general strength training - freeletics there are some great free work outs

Interesting thread. Got a bit obsessed with this over the winter and started recording in a chart.

In summary my findings were that for around 20 bats, when moved to the garage for a few days they would put on between 1-1.5 ounces and when moved back into the house they would go on a diet again over the course of a week or so. Not too surprisingly, bigger bats seemed to gain more weight than smaller bats. I also found that scuff sheets didn't always make a difference and some with a scuff would gain and shed weight in exactly the same proportions as non-scuffed bats.

Other interesting results were that a couple of Indian bats didn't change weight much at all and similarly GM bats seem to maintain their weight better than most.

Most of this was during the wettest winter period and my garage is quite rickety and old so I guess would be exactly the same humidity as open air.

Hardly scientific but enough to show me 100% that weights can vary by almost a couple of ounces just by moving in or out of the house.

I was always told to store my bats somewhere where the temp doesnt change, Ive always done that but have never been someone fussed on bat weights, if it feels right it feels right for me, but during the winter/pre season/early season Ive always used a heavier bat (2/3oz heavier) so I play the ball later. But after a couple weeks when the muscle memory kicks back in, Id feel comfortable using anything between 2.8-3lb with no issues
