Cricket Coaching Batting Tips How to Use Bowling Machines


I friend in this video we are going to cover how using a bowling machine too much, can turn you into a robotic kind of player and can actually spoil you’re
batting game and how I think a SIDE ARM or thrown downs
are considerably better I’m hi guys Jemile of the cricket school here in this video I wanted to tackle
something that i am seeing more and more from coaches and something that i am seeing happening to players as a result of using bowling machines too much don’t get me wrong i like bowling machines and i think bowling machines are great, and I think the best time for any cricketer to be using a bowling machines is in the winter I also think that for club cricketers they are invaluable training aid the
beginning of the season When a player hasn’t faced many balls over the winter and you just need lots of red things coming at you and that could go for a keeper as well and I think they are great in that situation
but something i am seeing happening more and more with young players is that they are turning into robots and they are turning into front front bullies and you can see when they are playing that they are always going onto the front foot there always going onto the front foot and the reason is I think is because the coaches that has been
working with those players has just been doing a lot of front foot drives which is a shot that coach likes to see a
lot and that’s actually not doing good to
the player I am a firm believer in you going to switch things up and do lots of different things and also do whats hard for a player and not the easy stuff in order for that player to improve and I see a lot with bowling machines that people are kind of just turning into robots – i prefer th side arm, i prefer the throw down. i think the side arm is a great tool because it basically saves my arm as a coach and there is this good variation off that side arm especially the pro version its ridiculous the speed at
which he comes off this surface is great and really makes the
batsman have to watch the ball and it’s really lifelike and the closer i gets to my player the more
accurate i become and I prefer that because that variance is more like this
variance that a player will have when they’re playing on a grass wicket and it’s more like the variance that the player
will have to deal with as the ball gets older, it’s more like the variance that the player will have to deal with as the bowler bowls slowr balls leg cutters. in swing and away swingers and all that kind of thing So this is just my opinion, this is not just a rant this is just my opinion and i’ve been coaching for a few years and i think i am pretty right on this but i would be happy to hear other
people’s opinions, on don’t get me wrong I don’t dislike bowling machines but I like
and i prefer the variance of a side arm as well as throw downs more because i think players need that you never know what’s coming in a game and I think the just keeps helps to
keep a player honest. Thanks for watching please feel free to leave comments in the

  2. That's a great eye opener.I was thinking of buying a bowling machine for my son and now changed my mind and decided to get 50-60 cricket balls instead.I already have a side arm thrower and with both it should do more good I believe.

  3. Awesome videos Sir, you can play both waysπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
