Mate, football is always on fta tv. There are like 3 games a day on at the moment. You can't escape from it.

This happens every 2 years!

FA Cup yes (shared with BT Sport) but European games all now on BT Sport. The reason that the FA cup is on it because of the list protected by the government...

Watching tele doesn't make a better cricketer.

Totally disagree with this statement. I spent ages in my teens watching cricket when it become big around 2005 and from watching the Bell cover drive, trott defence I would find myself shadow batting and just watching the slow motion replays and that really helped me become a much better player over the next few years.

So thanks for all the comments and thoughts arranged to take a small group of our more talanted younger players who play hard ball for 90mins this Friday and on last weekends strip we are going to train in the middle instead of the nets and see if I can put into practice some of the ideas and thoughts shared on here all around scoring options and positions.

You've used the right to disagree 😃
I learn glance shot from Javed Miandad, as I liked that shot.
I didn't have any sort of coaching av, so that was the only way at that time.
But that didn't mean I became a better batsman just because of that shot.
Civet drive is a shot, in my opinion, every good batter will have from the start in the armory.
Defensive play is a mental attitude.
And if I was coached, I'm sure I'd would have been much better cricketer 🙂

plus it's an easy game for all schools , clubs and break/lunch times to play. Football isn't loved it's just super super easy to provide facilities for. Cricket.. not so much sadly


apart from that.. Butters is right, Participation won't come back until cricket is FTA.. streaming is doing wonders but the benefit won't be seen for years and needs to reach the younger people.

We used to play cricket at school in break time, all you need is a cricket or tennis ball and a cricket bat, prop a bag up to use as the stumps. Its not difficult at all and required zero adult oversight!

The difference was - we all saw cricket on FTA tv and thus felt inspired to play.

My lads school have banned cricket bats during breaks....they improvise using a shoe!   They are lucky as their head of PE plays cricket so they get to have sessions during PE and nets after school once a week - unusual for a secondary school these days as other local schools play no cricket at all.

good luck getting schools to allow people to smash tennis balls around the ground.. Could have someone's eye out... Elf and safety :)
