How to use Cricketcoach.com:
The content here cricketcoach.com is designed to begin with the basics of cricket. By this we mean starting with the knowledge that will provide a sound learning base for you to either begin playing cricket, or enhance your existing knowledge. We urge you to read the tutorials on even some of the basic issues such as shoes, or warming up. As the weeks progress,
we will introduce more and more information that will build your knowledge. Content will then move on to cover more specific parts of the game, for example, “Playing the cut shot”, or “How to Bowl an Inswinger”, but these topics are not worth covering if you don’t know how to grip the bat, or build a bowling action.

There is a great deal of information provided to the free users at cricketcoach.com. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of cricketcoach.com:
Read all tutorials
Even if you are not a coach, read the tutorials that relate to coaching. There may be some information there that will assist you with how to discipline yourself, or some additional training ideas that you can try on your own or with friends. Even if you are a batter and not a bowler, read the bowling tutorials as it may just give you some insight into how the bowler is thinking when they are bowling to you. Read all tutorials on scoring and umpiring. At some stage in your cricketing career, you may have to fulfill either or both of these roles, so begin to gain some understanding of what to do in those situations.
Don’t just watch the videos.
While watching the video footage supplied will assist your understanding of the concepts, we urge all users to read each tutorial at least once. In some cases, you may find that reading a tutorial more than once will help you to understand the content even more.This is so that you can visit the tutorial over and over again, to make certain that you understand it. As the week progresses and you think about what you have read, you may find that you have further questions, so revisit the tutorial and see if you missed something the first time you read it.
Never assume you know everything.
Even some senior players may find information at cricketcoach.com that answers
some of their own questions. Also, it may serve to clarify things for them by breaking concepts down into their basic components, therefore helping them to understand what they already knew, a little bit better. By consulting with professional coaches and International players, we have done our best to bring you the most informative site ever on cricket and how to play it
Read and watch all drills:
Even if you are a slips fielder and not a wicket keeper, many of the drills that relate to wicket keeping may relate to your position. The same goes for people that field in the mid field. Taking the ball the same way a wicket keeper does may assist you when trying to get a run out at the stumps.
Read the Analysis of a First Class Game:
The aim of this section is to try and get inside the head of the cricket captains, to try and understand what they are thinking when they are out on the field. By reading this, it will help you understand and deal with different situations when you’re on the field. Probably more for the older junior players or intermediate level players who need to really relate to the tactics as they may be captain of the team. However, this section is still valuable to the younger juniors who may wish to start trying to get a grip on what is actually happening in the middle and why.
Remember that no matter how much reading you do or how much you understand
the concepts that we present to you, it will mean nothing if you can’t put it into practice on the field. Find the time to put into making yourself a great cricketer.
Make Cricket Fun:
Cricket is a fantastic game, and a lot of satisfaction can be gained from it, especially when you can play it well. Enjoy the game, and remember that it is just that – a game – sportsmanship should always be the winner, respect your fellow players, opponents and their abilities, and respect the rules of the game.
