About the Author
Dr. Ken Davis has played and coached cricket at a high level, coached both men’s and women’s teams and provided support to players as a sport psychologist. In 1975 he completed a master’s degree in physical education in Perth, Western Australia, where his thesis on cinematographic analysis of fast bowling in cricket became the catalyst for over 30 years of research into this explosive and often potentially harmful motion. In 1989 he completed a PhD in sport psychology from Florida State University. He has worked with several elite athletes and teams in the role of sport psychologist, most notably with the Geelong and Richmond football teams in the Australian Football League. Since 2000 Ken has worked at Cricket Victoria in a variety of roles, including coaching the successful Victorian Spirit women’s team as well as leading the Australian women’s youth team on tours of New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
Neil Buszard played over 300 games of Premier cricket and had a division of the Victorian Premier Cricket competition named in his honour during the 2006-07 season. He was also a very successful baseball player, representing Australia as a third baseman and also winning the coveted Helms Award as the best player in Australia. Graduates of Buszard’s innovative and balanced training programme have become elite cricketers, and many have made their mark in other fields as well, including cricket administration. Neil has great people skills as well as cricket skills: His unbridled enthusiasm for the game, coupled with his energetic and thoughtful approach to performance enhancement, has long placed him at the forefront of coaching in Australia.
