I'm a leg Spin bowler and coach with a keen interest in Biomechanics and Sports Science.
I’d bowled leg spin for a long time without really looking like going anywhere. A few years ago the wicketkeeper of our first grade team got a job as head coach at my school’s cricket academy. Which in short, he saw me bowling and my progress and decided to invite me to train with the scorchers. Whilst training with the scorchers I had the privilege to play and train with some really experience cricketers. Former New Zealand opening batsman and current Canterbury Captain Peter Fulton has a wealth of experience and it was a great to meet him. I learned a lot from Fults, getting the chance to bowl to him and hear what he thinks of my bowling was amazing.
Sam Northeast, England U19s and Kent Batsman and James Bazley, Australia U19 and Brisbane Heat All-rounder, were to other great blokes to train with. Whilst their major role might not be spin bowling (Northy bowls some handy leggies), they have both played with and against some very talented spin bowlers. Talking to Northeast and Bazley really helped me to further understand what a batsman is trying to do when facing spin and what fields and plans to have when bowling to certain types of batsman.
I’ve played and trained with a huge number of other talented players, spin bowlers and spin bowling coaches who have really helped me improve my knowledge of spin bowling and learn how to achieve success. I was leading wicket taker for the U17s Scorchers team, and just recently was leading wicket taker at the state 19 years cricket tournament. I’m hoping and planning on with a lot of hard work to achieve much more success and hopefully help other passionate spin bowlers improve their game.
