One more quick update before returning to fuller articles in future.

The weeks training was all done indoors due to rain. We have settled into a compromise way of training were there are fewer games and scorekeeping and more traditional netting, only with a clear intention from each player. This is working well, although my ambition is still to get better on tracking training performance.

The Saturday matches were rained off, and the Sunday Development XI managed 60 overs from 80 before being abandoned. I was pleased to have one of the Under 15s make his senior debut and bowl eight overs for a respectable 50 runs (he was bowling to some very good players). He bowled well enough for a wicket but couldn't get the luck for one. Still, it was a fun and tiring experience for him.

I also noticed a couple of the guys I have been working with on batting playing with a better technique. This is highly satisfying as I can see some results from the hard work they are putting in with me.
