Paceman Pitch Attack Bowling Machine – Cricket Training Aid [Net World Sports]

Right, this isn’t something you’d usually walk into a shop and ask for, but it looks like such a great idea for kids and adults to practice their batting. If I had been able to get one of these in a school or a club (or my garden) when I was growing up, I would have been hogging it almost every hour!

At under £200, this seems a steal! Producing speeds of over 80kph, in or out swing options, and 6 ball auto-feeder, I bet this would embarrass some league cricketers out there.

I managed to have a demo at a sports expo earlier in the year, and it will definitely give most ‘batsmen’ a run for their money.

A must for any village cricketer in my view.
