A new cricketing experience

They say you should learn something from every game you play in and I certainly was taken out of my comfort zone yesterday. He was standing a long way back but I've never started my run up ( that's what they call it in in the text books even though it's not very taxing) closer to the batsman than the umpire. It's very unnerving without the usual reference point.

Given the length of your run up I find it hard to believe this hasn't happened to you before!!

The non striking batsman was standing about 4 paces behind the stumps when you started your Mave up? Odd indeed. He clearly wanted to observe the whole action from start to finish
