    12 year old Rachin



    His mentor has posted his videos since he was 6-7. Awesome progress and great technique by him. Although, what I would like to see though is him facing a real bowler and not a bowling machine (all his prior videos have also been bowling machines)...

    He should pull to the floor

    not sure about the back foot flick either

    does he have a personally channel?

    Good technique but hits the ball in the air quite frequently.

    Yes and he really should be leaving or back foot defense shots instead of flicking off the back foot

    No evidence at all. How will he cope on SEAMING WICKETS against GOOD BOWLERS. Just looks like another flat track bully to me.

    ^ Oh. I was going to ask where he's from. Does that mean he's aiming to get into the NZ squad? The pitch is very flat though and there is no lateral movement (air or off the pitch) and I think he's done it so many times that he knows what balls the machine is going to throw at him next. It'll be a whole new world when he actually faces a human.

    Yeah man...it's very easy to hit balls that are coming at constant pace with no lateral movement. He's only 12 so he's got time to work on it but he shouldn't develop a bad habit...

    how is that your habit?

    It's batsmen who get scared and end up playing too soon and leaving you with catching the ball.

    I doubt he only faces bowling machines. He probably just records his bowling machine sessions.

    Deal

    You're betting a huge amount of money that you're better at cricket than a 12 year old. You're also betting this money knowing you're never going to get to bowl a delivery at him. And you're betting that money even though he obviously will survive at least one delivery off you.

    Just give the money to me know ****.

    He bowl so slowly that they play too early and hit in the air.
