Cricket Coaching

“Cool cricket, I love it” I told my friend “yeah OK ,whatever” she replied quickly. Every week room 17 have cricket lessons out on the field in the evenings. I like cricket because I know how to play and I enjoy it. Hammond the coach first taught us the pool shot.I have never heard of that shot ,well I have never heard of any shots that's weird, how I love cricket but I hardly have any experience.

One Thursday we learnt the pull shot with Hammond. With the pull shot we had to split up in teams of four. We all had to try and hit the ball between these two cones, I hit them way out between the cones. Sometimes I hit it out of bounds and sometimes at the back of me.

We were all sitting down waiting for Hammond to tell us we could go and practice the front foot drive. For the Front foot drive we had to hit the ball between the cones like the pool shot , but we put the two balls on the Tee and hit it through cones. It started off being tricky, because I kept on missing the Ball. Later on I got used to it, but I still need a bit more practice.
