Monday Mentoring Ep 12 - Boost your confidence against the short ball

Question: When I'm training to play short balls (with someone chucking them down from the other end), I generally play them quite well. But when I face short balls in the nets, I tend to hesitate and move away. I'm guessing that's because I prepare myself for a short one during throwdowns, but they're a lot more unpredictable in the nets. What's a good way to solve this challenge?

17 year old Teague Wyllie on his transition into senior cricket

This episode is with one of our favourites at Cricket Mentoring, a fan favourite, one of our incredibly exciting young athletes and a good mate of mine, Teague Wyllie.    Having just turned 17, Teague is still very early in his cricket journey but has achieved a lot in the past couple of years to make him one of the brightest young batting prospects in WA and Australia.   Having played the whole season as a 16 year old, Teague opened the batting for Rockingham-Mandurah in the 1st grade competition this season and scored 627 runs @ an average of 44.79 the 10th most runs in competition. His outstanding and really consistent performances, helped his side finish second on the ladder at the end of the season and saw him finish 5th in the umpire voted Best & Fairest award for the competition.   Those of you that have followed Cricket Mentoring for a while will know that Teague has been one of our much publicised athletes for a while and has grown his own little following amongst the CM community.   I’ve been coaching/ mentoring him for the past 4 years after I reached out to him via Instagram and am really proud of not only the cricketer he is becoming but also the confident and humble young man he is, which I’m sure you will get an insight to through the way he speaks in this episode.   While he is still young and has a long, long way to go in the game, cricket is in his DNA and he has an exceptional understanding of the game for his age which he talks about through the episode. I was really excited to do this episode as Even though I know him well, I knew I’d learn more about him and from this conversation.   In this episode Teague shared:   __ __   We have a lot of teenage listeners who I have no doubt will get something out of this conversation with a teenager navigating his way through the early stages of his grade cricket career while having big dreams to keep improving and go further in the game.    To follow Teague, you can find him on Instagram at @teaguewyllie04   If you enjoy this conversation, please send him a DM letting him know that you listened to the podcast and enjoyed it.

Shaun Marsh, or SOS as he’s known in the cricketing world made his first-class debut way back in the 2000/2001 season and as he approaches his 38th birthday, was named the domestic cricketer of the year for the second year in a row which shows he’s still got plenty of high-quality cricket ahead of him. Only a couple of days ago, SOS passed Justin Langer as the highest ever run scorer in List A cricket as he scored his 19th List A century in WA’s victory over South Australia at the WACA. SOS has represented Australia 126 times across all formats and has scored over 5,000 international runs with 13 centuries. At his best, there aren’t many better players in the world! SOS has been a great mate of mine for a long time so it was nice to finally sit down and hear more about his story and how he goes about his batting.

Bhavi Devchand - From the toughest time in her life, to being teammates with the worlds best

Today’s guest is a professional cricketer, a mentor of ours and the head of female cricket at Cricket Mentoring and someone who has become a friend over the past few years. Bhavi Devchand is currently contracted with Victoria and is training and rubbing shoulders on a daily basis with some of the world’s best cricketers including Elysse Perry and Australian captain Meg Lanning. While she’s living her dream, it certainly has been an easy run and she’s had her fair share of setbacks and disappointment.  As one of our mentors, I probably should have shared Bhavi’s story a long time ago but had I done so, we wouldn’t have got the last 15 months of her story, which as she says, has been some of the best and worst times in her life. The setbacks she faced, forced her to step out of her comfort zone, which has resulted in some of her biggest growth as a person, which she shares with us throughout this podcast.  This is an awesome story of challenging yourself and getting out of your comfort zone as well as going back to why you started pursuing cricket...cause you love it. I have no doubt this episode will give aspiring cricketers hope that anything is possible and hopefully it inspires a young boy or girl somewhere in the world, to chase their dreams despite the obstacles that you face. Lets get into it.
