After one of the wettest cricket season's in living memory, UAJCL reveals yet another record number of matches were played in 2007. The total was 371, up 19 from 2006.

Team Manager's worked wonders in coping with the atrocious weather and 39 replays were managed. The final abandonment total was 71, up 44 from 2006.

The Brook Taverner u-13 League was hit hardest with 27 not played whilst the u-11 CartaSport League rode the storm best with 11. The u-11 managers managed to get 16 rained-off matches re-arranged and cannot be praised too highly in ensuring cricket for our youngsters. Other replay rates were 3 out of 16 (u-17), 15 out of 31 (u-15) and 5 out of 32 at u-13 level.

The UAJCL would once again sincerely like to extend the gratitude of all its officials, clubs and players to their sponsors for 2007. Without their exceptional generosity the League would not be able to function.

If you are interested in sponsoring any of our age groups or competitions for future years please contact the Secretary: derekhurren@googlemail.com

Learn how to become a better cricketer

In Cricket, batting is a matter of timing. Many cricket enthusiasts believe it is about brute force, but they probably never tried to play cricket in their life. And if they tried, they probably were not too good at it. If you get used to bat properly, you will make the first step towards playing cricket like a pro. But there are numerous other advices and tricks that will keep you in the field. Follow these tips and you will play cricket like a professional.

Improve your cricket skills

This fun game will keep you fit and healthy, yet cricket can be a lot more entertaining if you play it properly – and you will win every time, too! An important thing you will have to do is, of course, practicing this game regularly and as often as you can. You will easily improve your batting if you will constantly play against your friends or even your escort Paris you found on https://www.6annonce.com/ and hiring a professional coach for advices is something you should consider even if you do not want to turn this hobby into profit.

You must focus on your week points if you wish to learn how to play cricket like a pro. Know both your strengths and weaknesses and bat as much as possible until your week points will be slowly transformed into your best points. Professional cricket players believe that if you will have no weak points, it will be better than having several strengths. If you consider it well, you will realize that this applies in any fields, not just when playing cricket.

Believe in yourself and you will bat well if you really want. Also teach your escort Paris to do that too. You will no longer spend time, since you will practice very often, but you will know your game better and you will have reasons to congratulate you on each run. Do not just practice one shot, it is one of the most frequent mistakes that cricket players do. Play a wide array of strokes and shots and remember that different balls will need to be angled differently.

Though these shots will become your strengths, it will be impossible to make the same response on every ball. A bowler can detect your weak points and he will sure take advantage of it the next time when he will bowl. Motivate yourself all the time and set up some goals if you wish to achieve them. Constantly know your role, find the best position where you can play and play unofficial games to ensure you will practice as often as possible. Do not play alone, interact with your teammates and establish an effective communication in your cricket team.

Try your best to become well-versed in the tricks. Playing drives and plying the hook shots are some tricks that you really have to learn if you wish to get better at this game along with your escort. Observe other players when they practice cricket, watch them on TV and try to catch some of their impressive moves. Always be careful at the ball, learn how and when to use your bat and you will gain some great cricket skills!
