How to Train Your Bowlers!

Hi Guys,
Well- This is another LONG POST I guess- About Bowling Training- Major Methods (Other combinations are possible but these are 4 BEST Ones)!

Now- After interactions with Various managers- I know there are many many Managers who are confused about Bowling Main Training- Even people who are in Div 3-Div 4- And yeah- it was surprising for me!!

So- I thought- why not I just put a Thread about the Best Methods- What's Good, What's Bad- What to do and How in Single Page?

And Here it is!

REMEMBER- It is only BM Training I am discussing! And These are purely my suggestions- You are free to disagree!

P.S.- For Calculating Percentage Training your Bowler will recieve- 
= (X/Y)*300%
Where X = No. of Overs bowled by that Bowler
Y= No. of Total Overs bowled by All such Bowlers (Total SPin or Seam overs- whatever you are training in)

This is PER MATCH! For Week- Add for both Matches of the Week!


Traditional- 3/2

Soul Collector’s 6/0

Experienced Focus 6/1

Straight forward 5/0

How to Train?

Trainee A,B,C bowling 12 overs in Match 1 and Trainee D,E,F Bowling 12 overs in Match 2- Rest 8 overs bowled by opposite type bowler

Trainee A,B,C,D,E,F Bowling 4,4,3,3,3,3 Overs in Match 1 and Trainees A,B,C,D,E,F bowling 3,3,4,4,4,2 overs in Match 2

Trainees- A,B,C,D,E,F bowling 3 overs each in Match 1 and in Match 2- and rest 2 overs to be bowled by Opposite type Bowler/Part timer

Trainees A,B,C,D,E bowling 4 overs each- in both matches

What You Get?

6 Trainees with 100% Training

5 Trainees with 100% training and Trainee F with  around 75% training

6 Trainees with 100% training

5 Trainees with 100% Training

What You Need to Invest in?

2 Good opposite Type bowlers

Nothing Much- An Advantage

Batting All rounder with opposite type Bowling

Nothing- That’s The Advantage here

Key Benefits (Just my Suggestion- Could differ from case to case basis)

Fitness- Huge savings in Fitness
And Balanced Attack-

6 Bowlers for Training- Hence extra Trainee to Sell and Earn Money later
Double Experience

6 Bowlers with FULL Training- so 6 Kick ass Bowlers- MORE MONEY
+ Double Experience

Not much Risk- Can play with 6 Batsman- And don’t need to invest anything Extra + Double Experience- Better Bowling attack overall in few seasons

Major Drawbacks

Experience Loss- Only Half Experience compared to Others
+ 8 Overs by other Bowlers are mostly weaker

5 Batsman- Shorter Batting- resulting in more chances of losses
Also 6th Trainee reaching only 75% of his Potential at any age- Waste of Training

5 Batsman- Shorter Batting- Higher Chances of Loss + 2 Very weak overs- HIGH chance of getting thrashed in these overs

Training only 5 trainees instead of 6- there by loss of potential Income which other teams with 6 trainees can earn

Who Should go for it?

SEAM TRAINEES- Half Matches mean significantly Less Fitness Loss for them

SPIN TRAINEES in Competitive Leagues where 2 weak overs might make the difference in the season
Also those who have 5 trainees and 1 Young Batsman Can go for this to create that ALL ROUNDER

SPIN TRAINEES who are in relatively easier League- or who have super strong Bowling that those 2 overs won’t make a difference


Pitch Suggestion

Bowling Friendly- As Your 6 Batsman can counter other Bowling- OR
if you are in a League dominated by STRONG Bowling Teams

Sporting or Flat- Hear me out- With most Teams being Bowling Teams- Its better to have Sporting Pitch or Even Flat Pitch to help Your 5 Batsman

Sporting or FLAT- Same logic applies- 5 Batsman- Need some support- which can help your Batsman to score well

Bowling Friendly- Definitely Your Bowling Trainee Friendly Pitch- 5 Spinners- Crumbling, 5 Seamers- Green- No Doubts here!

What Can you Expect

6 Great Trainees- And Less Fitness Training- Though 8 relatively Average overs means some matches could result in a Loss

5 Great Bowler with Great Experience + 1 Decent All Rounder in training- without compromising Batting strength- or 5 Great Bowlers and 1 Good with sacrifice of Batting

6 Great Bowlers with Great Experience But Losses due to those 2 overs and weaker Batting could be highest here

5 Great Bowlers with Great Experience And least chances of unexpected losses- though no option of Earning that Extra Money with sale of 6th Trainee

One Major Manager using the method CURRENTLY (Yeah- Go and Bug them if you want)

according to your formula my spin trainee get only 60% training even he bowls 8 overs in week's match.
how is it means that a spinner can't get full training ever......

that means don't give any bowler his full quota for better training for all bowlers......
isn't it?

Can u share ur 2 League matches and name the spinner who got 60%?

Or just tell me how u allocated overs..

Pinaki Das (dada007)

Not neccessary.. Method 1 and Method 4- You give full quota. :)

Depends on the method- but when in doubt- use the formula
