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

May 31, 2021

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

17 year old Teague Wyllie on his transition into senior cricket

May 20, 2021

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:

 

  • How his dad taught him the fundamentals of the game that are the pillars of the way he plays now
  • The moment he believed he was good enough to perform at national level which gave him the belief to keep pushing hsi game and career forward
  • How the Cricket Mentoring tour to India two years ago helped his game against spin and how he uses those lessons in grade cricket
  • How his emotions were on a rollercoaster during an incredible month that saw him score his first, 1st grade century followed by three ducks in a row and how he bounced back from that
  • How he sets up his batting plan for different formats and how he tries to bat all day in two-day cricket
  • Plus a whole lot more!

 

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.

Understanding yourself and your game is one of the most crucial elements to your success as an athlete.

 

But HOW do you understand yourself and your game?

 

Through reflecting on past experiences and learning from them!

 

In this video, @scolls5 shares a way you can learn from your previous success and failures by trying to understand what you’ve done well when you’ve performed at your best and what you haven’t done well when you have made mistakes.

 

The sooner you can understand yourself and your game, the easier it will become to be consistent!

G’day legends. Welcome back or welcome to the Cricket Mentoring Podcast.

The idea of this podcast is to share the unique stories of cricketers, coaches and performance experts, with the aim of giving you; serious & committed cricketers, coaches or parents, some techniques, strategies and inspiration so you can become a better and more confident cricketer and ultimately live a better, happier life.

This episode is with someone who has a really inspiring story. 

New Zealand all-rounder Daryl Mitchell is relatively new to International cricket having made his debut in 2019. At the time of this conversation Mitchell has played 4 Tests, 3 One-day internationals and 15 T20 Internationals. He already has a Test and ODI 100 and is fast becoming one of the best all-rounders in the game.

But it certainly hasn’t been an easy ride for Mitchell and as you will hear in this episode, he hasn’t always been destined for international cricket.

In this episode Darryl shared:

 

  • What it was like growing up with a father who was an all-black and famous rugby player and coach
  • How he had a little private cricket academy in Perth with Marcus Stoinis and Marcus Harris who were club teammates
  • Why he left Perth and relocated back to New Zealand
  • What he does away from cricket to get balance in his life
  • How it took him about 5 years to learn what worked for him and how to manage playing to his strengths while trying to negate his weaknesses
  • How he asked to bowl at the death and what he had to do physically, technically and tactically to be at the level required to do the job for his team
  • How he prepares for a match and how it changes depending on how he feels
  • Plus a whole lot more!

I have no doubt you’re going to get a lot out of this conversation!

Question:  Hi Scolls

I hope you don't take this the wrong way!

In your own game, you score loads of 20's/30's in WACA Grade Cricket.

What is stopping you going on to get the bigger scores you obviously strive for?

Is it technical, tactical, mental?

We got this question from one of the members of The Cricket Mentoring Community during a LIVE Q & A with Scolls.

Q: Couple of questions to you around Game-day Mindset. 

1) I felt like I was in a Negative frame of mindset last Game. Maybe, I lacked the motivation compared to the other games I played this season!

Any tips/advice around how to change the story (narrative) in my mind to be more positive? or any other advice in general around, how to perform close to your best, if not best, on the days when you lack motivation before a match?

2) Any advice around how can I be more Switched ON before a Match?
