This comprehensive manual is a lively, yet scientifically and technically thorough guide to the science of batting in cricket. Combining the knowledge of top cricket coach Bob Woolmer and an expert sports scientist the book tackles the essential cricket techniques involved in batting, including stance, grip, picking line and length, shot selection and shot execution.
Unlike many other manuals, Bob Woolmer on Batting focuses not only on the cricket techniques of batting, but also on the visual, physical, bio mechanical and mental skills that make up the art of batting.
Featuring dynamic photo sequences to clearly explain every shot, along with useful summaries, cricket batting tips and trouble-shooting advice, this is the definitive guide to mastering the skills involved in batting to improve your cricket.
Considered the most forward-thinking coach in international cricket, BOB WOOLMER'S tragic and untimely death at the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean dominated headlines around the globe for months. One small comfort is that he had just completed his magnum opus, a lifetime's wisdom garnered from playing and coaching cricket at the highest levels.
