Description

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 techniques involved in batting, including picking line and length, balance, shot selection and shot execution. Unlike many other manuals, "Bob Woolmer on Batting' focuses not only on the technical aspects of batting, but also on mental strength; covering the visual and neurological, physical and biomechanical, and psychological skills that make up the science of batting. Featuring clear, explanatory illustrations throughout, along with useful summaries and tips, this is the definitive guide to mastering the skills involved in batting.

Author Biography

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. PROFESSOR TIM NOAKES co-founded the Sports Science Institute of South Africa and is the Discovery Health Chair of Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Cape Town. He also directs the Medical Research Council/UCT Exercise Science and Sports Medicine Research Unit, which has produced nearly 400 scientific articles since its foundation 12 years ago. DR HELEN MOFFETT is a freelance writer and academic (she is a Senior Research Fellow at the African Gender Institute at the University of Cape Town). She is passionate about cricket, and has lectured all over the world on the social, political and cultural dimensions of the game. She has also co-produced two documentary films on cricket, transformation and nation-building in South Africa.
