The Cricket Ball

I am…was a pretty good fielder. I’d back myself to catch any ball, on any given day. I’d be quick around the field and one mis-field a game is all I’d ever allow myself. Somehow yesterday was the worst of a period of 3 steadily declining games in the field. I can’t seem to hold onto a ball, be it a catch, a drive, or throw for a run out. Also, my hands seem to be sustaining more and more damage as the games go by. Any movement by any of the fingers on my left hand is cause for pain.

Essentially my confidence on the field is rather low. I need to get that up somehow. I need a few balls to hit the middle of my palms and just stick.
