In a conversation with Ian recently, a member of the group asked him “who is the best bowler that you have kept to”? Not surprisingly Ian replied “Warne” but said that it wasn’t always fun particularly on last day wickets when the ball could go anywhere making his job even more difficult. Ian went on to say that often he couldn’t sleep well the night before an important day five because he didn’t want to be the player who dropped an important catch or missed a stumping. So, rather than sleep at all he would get up, grab a golf ball, find a wall and clear his mind by throwing the ball against it while focusing on the fundamentals of wicket keeping.
Healy’s Hint……………….The power of positive doing outweighs just thinking. It can be a trap to be thinking about things too much without acting out these thoughts. Get up and do things.
