Here’s Reedy: “As an aspiring cricketer myself, I’m seeing more and more how important it is to be prepared both physically and mentally to perform at your best. I feel like I can relate to other young players dealing with outside pressures whilst also trying to progress your own game. Being a top order player, I firmly believe that the mental side of the game combined with a sound technique is the absolute key to bat for long periods of time to score big runs. I thoroughly enjoy seeing players grind through tough periods against good bowling and then go on to get a score. I am really enjoying mentoring other young cricketers who are aspiring to become the best they can be.”
