After being dismissed for another dismal score, the captain sits the team down to deliver an all too familiar rant.
“Look boys, it’s just not good enough! We had three guys get starts, and then just throw their wickets away with careless shots”.
Well, Skipper… what do you expect? Has anyone stopped to consider that this is exactly what batsmen in cricket train to do?
The way batsmen train is like preparing to run a marathon by taking the dog for a 10-minute walk – little intensity, different conditions, and a lack of insults about your rig from nearby strangers.
