BOWLING : Field setting: Off spin, Twenty20 middle overs

The middle overs of a Twenty20 game are the black sheep of cricket: unglamorous and disregarded and nobody likes talking about them.

But a loss of focus in this period is all it takes to lose a close match where every stolen single counts.

Even in short format games (be they 16 8 ball overs of traditional evening cricket or the more modern Twenty20) there is a period where the game pace changes and there is a lull before the final push for the line.

Usually this takes place between overs 6-12, but can be longer if wickets are falling (or indeed shorter if the batsmen are carving it to all parts on a flat track). It's the time for spinners to make a mark and restrict scoring.

In this field setting we are talking the IPL as a model. That means a field restriction of 4 players inside the 30 yard fielding circle and a maximum of 5 on the leg side.

We are also going to assume the pitch is a 'typical' Indian wicket with not much pace or bounce but some turn.


Bowling to this field

Your main role in the middle overs is to restrict the score and frustrate batsmen into hitting out before they are ready. For that reason your standard line needs to be straighter and you give the ball less flight than you would in longer formats.

Aim to get the batsman playing forward as if he or she can go back the have more time to work the ball into the gaps. Pitching the ball somewhere around 12-14 metres from the bowlers popping crease should do the job. Use the batsman's footwork reaction as a guide to length.

These tactics force the batsman to play straight or into the leg side where you can cut off the shots with your boundary runners.

Extra cover and mid off are key positions for you, stopping drives which will be most batsmen's escape route from the pressure. Place extra cover too square and he becomes redundant.

You can bowl to this field from over or round the wicket.


Bowling variations

As the batsman is looking to score off more deliveries than any other format, you can't let them get used to your bowling line, length or pace. To do so means they can premeditate an aggressive shot and score easily against you.

That's why it's important to vary from your stock delivery often if the batsman is on top:

Flight. The ability to place the ball in the same spot but with different heights on the ball is very deceptive. On slow wickets you can vary the flight of almost every ball, or just throw in the odd flatter/loopy ball if you feel the batsman is in a rhythm.

Arm ball. The ball that drifts away from the right hander is an excellent way to deceive the batsman and get a dot ball (or turn a boundary into a single). It's also a wicket taking ball. Pitch it further up and with a middle stump line.

Doosra. If you can bowl the one that goes the other way (a rare skill), bowl it at middle stump on a length and hope it catches the edge or the top of off stump.

Yorker. The very full ball is not just for the seamers. It's hard to hit a full and straight ball anywhere but down the ground.

Position on the crease. Adjusting where you deliver the ball can upset a batsman's timing. Try bowling from bowling crease instead of the popping crease, or going wider on the crease to change the angle.


Avoid bowling

Like all fields, loose bowling can be punished, but you do have protection in key areas to try and restrict the easy flow of runs.

•Too many stock balls. If the batsman realises you are putting the ball on the same spot without variation can work the ball around for singles and twos using the pace of the ball and the gaps in the spread out field

•Too many unpracticed variations. Variations are vital in T20, but if you bowl them without having practiced them first they just end up being bad balls. Make sure every variation you try in the middle has had plenty of work in the nets.


Field Variations

•To add pressure to a new batsman, deep gulley can move to slip or point can go to silly point (although not for more than a couple of balls)

•Mid off can be at orthodox or on the edge of the circle.

•Point can move out to the boundary as an off side sweeper.

•If the ball is turning consider a fielder saving one on the leg side behind square.

•Fielders in the ring can be tight on the single to squeeze the batsman or on the edge of the circle giving one but more likely to save a boundary.


Batting against this field

The batters main aim in this phase of the game is to be workmanlike and disciplined. The field is spread so hitting boundaries is harder, but scoring singles and twos is easier. Six an over is a reasonable rate and can be done by rotating the strike with minimum risk.

Play straight, looking to score in an arc between mid off and midwicket, especially if the bowler drops short so you can play back foot drives and pulls with control.

The late cut to anything wide outside off can pick up runs if it beats the man at deep gulley.

Don't get tempted into going 'inside out' and driving against the spin as this is a risky path that can lead to you missing or mistiming the ball. If you need to improvise try hitting over the leg side by clearing the front leg.

The sweep is productive against over the wicket off spin, but it can be risky if the bowler is going around the wicket because the line is straightening onto the stumps.

BATTING : How to exploit batting weaknesses - Width of stance

Every good coach will tell their players to stand ready with their feet a comfortable distance apart. While this is usually about shoulder width, some players will stand differently. The modern trend is to stand with a wider stance than the coaching book recommends.

Outwitting the wide stance

A wide stance is a batsman's way of hedging his or her bets. It allows you to play with less footwork because you have gone both forwards and back without moving. As a result it's favoured by big hitters who like to 'stand and deliver'.

If you are bowling to one of these players, the way to take advantage is to get the batsman 'feeling' for the ball.

This means extracting as much movement as possible through the air or off the pitch. The sluggish footwork means the batter is slow to get in position which increases the chances of edging the ball.

Outswing and the ball spinning away from the bat is the best way of doing this as the feet of the batsman don't move, but the bat follows the ball leading to the bat moving sideways away from the body and a loss of control (this is sometimes called "curtain-railing").

As you can see, the full face of the bat is not at the ball and it hit being hit square, allowing you to set squarer fields and plenty of off side catchers behind the bat.

Inswing and the ball spinning in can exploit the slow feet for catching batsmen LBW.

Spinners have a special advantage over the wide stance player. As they are more likely to get stuck flat footed they are especially vulnerable to the ball above the eye-line that dips late in flight.

Outwitting the narrow stance

Although less popular these days, the narrow stance batsman can survive in lower level cricket where the bowling is slower and the wickets less bouncy.

However, the base is less stable meaning the batter will favour playing on the back foot (because it's easier to sit back than lean forward and topple over).

So as bowler your best approach is to pitch the ball up a fuller length on or just outside off stump.

The unbalanced position going forward makes it harder for the batsman to know where the off stump is. He ends up playing at wide balls or getting closed off when playing at straighter balls and playing with half a bat.

Also, it's much harder for him to drive the ball along the ground from this unstable position, so close catchers in front of the wicket (short extra cover and short midwicket) are excellent fielding positions.

BOWLING : How to bowl into the Wind?

The sun beats down from a cloudless sky as you examine the wicket before play.
It's flat and grassless and looks like slab of baked concrete. Just as you think it can't get any worse you notice one end has a sloping run up and the wind is blowing down the hill.
You already know what the captain is going to say, but your heart sinks when he says it:
"Can you do this end please mate?" Another long spell uphill into the wind beckons.
How you react to the news goes a long way to making you a good into the wind bowler.
Do you need to?
The first question is; should you be bowling from the difficult end in the first place?
Someone has to of course, but if you are super quick and the best bowler in the team then perhaps not.
Why would the captain do such a thing?
  • He wants to give a less experienced bowler the advantage.
  • You historically bowl better from that end.
  • The pitch conditions are different at each end, and the end you are bowling from is to your advantage.
  • The other bowler is more senior or more of a prima donna (or both) and you get that end by default.
If you disagree with the logic of the decision then talk to the captain about it. If you make a good case then he or she might change his or her mind.
Most of the time he won't.

Take one for the team
So you have the ball in your hand and the gale in your face. Nothing feels right and every step is like wading through glue to get to the crease.
In short, it's a nightmare.
But doing it well means putting in a solid performance for the sake of the team.
Some bowlers react by using it as an excuse; they can't possibly bowl well when everything is against them. They go through the motions but it's nothing like their best. When they fail they say "I told you so".
Good bowlers see it as a challenge to their skills; a selfless act that if done well will lead to them being able to chose their end.
(Good bowlers also see it as an opportunity to be the fittest player who practices the hardest in the team, or club too).
After all, the skills don't change. You still need to be fast and accurate. You still need a repeatable action. You still need a plan B if all else fails.
So if it's not technical or tactical, it's that psychological difference that separates the best bowlers from the average ones.
Most people will play well when conditions are to their advantage, but if you can learn to play well by reacting positively to negative circumstances you will stand out as a bowler.
That's not really so bad after all.

BOWLING : How to exploit batting weaknesses: Choking grip

If you are looking for batting weaknesses, it's best not to highlight a technique used by Don Bradman. So just to be awkward, that's exactly what I'm about to do.
The 'choked' or 'O' grip is a common variation of the more orthodox bottom hand grip and, despite the example of the Don, causes problems for batsman at club and school level.
And you can take advantage.

How to spot the weakness
The batsman has a tighter bottom hand grip and you can see it when he lifts the bat up.
First, his palm is flat on the handle and second his back elbow is tucked in. Bob Woolmer calls this effect an inverted T shape (as opposed to the orthodox diamond shape caused by a hinged grip):
Why is it a weakness?
The problem with the choked grip is that it reduces the size of the batsman's hitting zone: the part of the swing that the ball can be struck:
As you can see from the yellow area, if you swing the bat along the line of the ball you are more likely to hit it.
However, as you can see from the picture below, if you choke the bat you tend to play across it with a more closed face and the time the bat is on the line of the ball for less time:
Unless the batter's timing is perfect, there is a much greater chance of getting bowled, an inside edge onto the stumps or a leading edge back to the bowler.

Outwitting the choked grip: Hit the stumps
Because the batsman needs perfect timing, they are especially vulnerable early in their innings to the straight ball.
So the best tactic is to bowl a line and length that the ball can hit the stumps: straight and with a full length.
Your exact line and length will vary on how much bounce and movement you are getting, but as long as the ball end up hitting the stumps the batsman will always give you a chance.
Bowling short, wide or down the leg side will play into this batter's hands, so keep it pitched up, hitting the stumps and set tight fields to cut off the areas the batsman scores.

Setting a field
The basics of field settings still apply, but because of the closed face, the ball is a little more likely to be hit through the leg side.
There is also less chance of the ball going through the off side with good timing.
That means key positions are:
Midwicket (short, in the ring or on the boundary)
Mid On (short, in the ring or on the boundary)
Extra Cover (in short for the leading edge)
The core six positions will be straighter than normal because your line is straight and full in order to hit the stumps.
A leg slip or leg gulley might also be handy for inside edges, while slips are less important because your line is straighter than usual.
You may find the well set batsman will be able to work the ball into the leg side, in which case you can to return to a more orthodox line: on or just outside the off stump with orthodox fields.

BOWLING : What distances do fast bowlers cover

What distances do fast bowlers cover?


GPS technology has allowed sports to track how far a player has covered during the course of a game.

Most of this is spent walking, with the bowler covering approximately 2 km striding and over 1 km sprinting. Sprints occur every 70 seconds or so and last for approximately 3 seconds. The average sprint distance is approximately 20 m with players clocking up almost 70 sprints per game.

What this means to you as a player or coach

This information firmly puts cricket on the map as a high intensity intermittent sport. As such, conditioning practices should reflect the demands of the game.

Long slow runs for cricketers should be kept for off-season recovery purposes only, with the majority of conditioning done through interval training.

In terms of player recovery, it is vitally important that the player re-hydrates and re-fuels immediately post-game so that the recovery process starts as soon as possible.


How does it take for a bowler to get tired?


In an attempt to find out the effects of bowling repeated spells on accuracy, and speed, a group of six first class bowlers bowled two, six over spells separated by 45 min of light activity..

Bowling speeds were barely reduced (125.7 kph versus 124.7 kph), and accuracy was similar during the two spells. It was also found that run-up speed in the final five meters was strongly related to bowling speeds.

As a side note, perceived effort in the second spell was higher than the first.

What this means to you as a player or coach

Taken together, these results mean that you can be confident that your bowlers should be able to maintain speed and accuracy during a competition for at least six overs.

Plus, a second spell is unlikely to have any effect.

It also highlights the importance of an effective strength and conditioning program to improve peak running speed and run-up speed.

It's also important to note the increase in perceptual fatigue without any change in bowling pace or accuracy. This finding emphasizes the importance of recovery strategies between spells or following games.

BOWLING : How to exploit batting weaknesses: Straight backlift

It might be controversial to say it, but a backlift over middle or leg stump is a weakness dying to be exploited by all types of bowlers.

Coaching manuals often advise players to pick the bat up straight, but this method limits a player's scoring options and allows the bowler several obvious ways to get a wicket.

How to spot the weakness

A straight backlift is easiest to spot as a bowler or wicketkeeper. Often it's harder to spot for the captain at slip or mid off because of the angle, but from front on you can see it right away as the ball is delivered.

With this backlift the shoulder and head tend to tip towards the off side. This makes the batsman strongly favour the off side, especially driving through the covers or squarer.

Why is it a weakness?

While the setup is great for the cover drive, it comes at a cost.

  • The batsman tends to play too square and not straight in the V. This means he or she often plays with half a bat, making edges more likely
  • The batsman is closed off to the leg side, meaning he can only hit the ball very square or fine on the leg side. It's almost impossible to drive or flick the ball in the mid on to midwicket area.

You can see the area the batsman looks to score in, and the area that is difficult to score in here:

How to bowl to a straight backlift

The leg side weakness is the area to exploit first.

Bowl the ball at the stumps and swing or spin it in.

This is because the batsman is forced to swing the bat around his body, is in a poor position and becomes a candidate for:

  • Bowled and LBW on the front foot.
  • Caught by a leg side catcher on the back foot.

Assuming the batsman is right handed for a moment, the best bowler would be left arm over/right arm round, swinging the ball in:

This angle is the hardest to play as the natural scoring area is between mid on and midwicket, which is closed off to our batter.

If your line strays off the straight (or the ball doesn't swing) you also have a chance to pick up slip/gulley catches as the batsman is aiming to drive through the covers rather than straight.

For this reason, off spinners going around the wicket can be especially effective against this batting weakness.

Make sure your cover and extra cover fielders are switched on to cut off the favourite shot, put your leg side fielders a little squarer and wait for the batsman to make a mistake. You can attack with slip and gulley fielders. Keep your short leg or short midwicket in as long as possible for the one that pops up when the batsman swings across it.
