And sometimes you come across something so incredibly out of the ordinary that you wonder if its actually just something you hadn’t thought hard enough about. So i read up cursorily about it.
And as with most things that I do, I lost my way with the first/next funny/bizarre sort of way that I found. And it ended up with the post about potty.
John over at his wonderful blog then saw the post & wrote about it. By then, any hopes of my having discussions on the concept of developing cricketers into honing ambidextrous skills were way out of the window.
Curiously though, from somewhere in the comments on that post on John’s site came a reference to this article by Peter Roebuck.
Elsewhere, I stumbled upon this old interview of Greg Chappell’s – where towards the end is his view on ambidextrous players as well.
Somewhere I’ll try and pull out an extract from the Waugh book on Buchanan’s ideas, but basically, I’m curious.
Once we let the initial cynicism go, is it an even workable concept? What do you think ?
