Desmond Haynes, the former West Indies opener, has been appointed to the International coaching panel of PitchVision Academy. Haynes is the latest coach to provide online coaching to grass-roots cricketers and coaches through the pitchvision.com portal.
In an online batting Masterclass - featuring videos, batting drills, a coaching eBook, a private discussion forum and personalised coaching materials - the opener reveals the knowledge and experience that got him over 26,000 first class runs and made him part of the most successful opening partnership of all time.
Speaking at the launch of Batting Lion: the Desmond Haynes Masterclass, Haynes said, “I have enjoyed greatly my time coaching young West Indian batsmen. Now is the time to make a difference to others too, to give something back to the game that I love. I’m happy that PitchVision Academy allows me to help cricketers with the mental, technical and tactical elements of batting.”
Director of Coaching, David Hinchliffe agreed, “Every batsman from the youngest to the most battle-hardened, and from village to professional will learn something from this Masterclass. I have seen a lot of top coaches in action and Desmond Haynes still surprised me with his unique, simple insights into batting.”
