    Anyone have any ideas on how to work on your batting during the off season..
    Its hard to get bowlers to bowl to you during the off season. i have got about one guy that can give me bowls but i sort on want to improve on the technical side of batting.

    Do what I did when I was a kid and throw a golf ball against a brick wall from about 5-6 yards and then defend it. Concrete or tarmac floor works best. Bradman did this with a stump, but I recommend giving yourself a fair chance and using an actual bat. Throw it as hard as you can.

    actually i do have a thing that i brought called the eye in.
    it is a small cricket ball (bit bigger width than a wicket) and a string and there is also a golf ball on the string i can use this but it is only really good for drives. not really cross bat shots. Will try it out using the golf ball.
