The Greatest Sport On Earth?

I'm sure you'll agree with me that cricket is probably the greatest sport on Earth, well if you are a cricketer like me you will. The fact is for many people all around the world cricket is almost like a religion, every week fans and players go to training and watch matches, dedicated to the sport we cricketers all love.

Learning How To Play Cricket

The problem with cricket is learning how to play cricket, importantly how to play cricket better than your opposition, and team mates, it's a great feeling to be the best player on the team. Many people think they can learn how to play cricket just by going down to nets, batting and bowling for a bit, then playing at the weekends.

The problem with this is that unless you have a good coach or senior players to oversee you, you will pick up bad habits which you reinforce every time you practice. You end up practicing bad habits and trust me this is the last thing you want.

If you are serious about learning how to play cricket you need to do the following things to help ensure your cricket success:

-Join a club with a good coaching system in place and that actively trains players to become coaches themselves, this ensures that there is a good coaching network within the club and so will help you progress and improve.

-Take an active approach to improving your cricket, read books, watch video clips, or even better coaching videos of top players and learn from them. When you go to training, don't just go through the motions, ask your coach or team mates to watch you play and pick out any faults and look to always make improvements.

-If you have the money, pay your local pro or top coach to give you some one-on- one advice and guidance and find out where you need to be improving. If possible get someone to video you playing in a match or in the nets to help with this.

Learning how to play cricket and improving yourself as a player is a great goal to have.
