Do you remember when you were young? Who you wanted to be I remember wanting to be Spiderman or Superman as a kid. I think he might even have wanted to be the Incredible Hulk.
As he grew up, he wanted to be a professional footballer and international cricketer. When I was a teenager, I wanted to be Steve Waugh. I loved the way he hit, I loved the way he captained the Australian cricket team.
Maybe you can remember when you were learning the game, maybe if you enjoyed watching Indian cricket then you wanted to be Sachin Tendukar or if you enjoyed Caribbean cricket, Viv Richards or Brian Lara they may have been your heroes.
You may have enjoyed the success of England and admired Ian Bell or James Anderson. You may have enjoyed watching the mighty South African teams.
We all want to be like our heroes and children study and observe teachers no matter what sport or activity. Children are very good at modeling their heroes, they imitate, pretend and study. Let’s see how children imitate, pretend and study their heroes.
There is almost wall-to-wall coverage of Cricket on TV and almost every country has dedicated sports channels and it is possible to watch almost every test match, every international day and every 20/20 game played anywhere. of the world. .
The Indian Premier League is televised around the world by the millions and the Australian Big Bash is gaining popularity. Even local domestic cricket is televised and it is here that children and young teens can learn from the teachers.
I would like to add that older cricketers can also learn by watching the talented player in action. You can watch and record TV to play live games. The Internet is full of resources that allow hitters the opportunity to study the best way to play the game.
The key point to remember is to strike the balance between playing your own game and therefore the balance between your own game and the new heroes is very important. If you have a weakness in your pads, you can watch former Australian captain Ricky Ponting or Andrew Strauss play down the side of your leg.
If you are weak to cut the ball offside, you can watch videos of AB De Villiers’ technique. If you have a weakness against spin I would suggest it would be a good idea to watch Michael Clark or some of the best hitters on the subcontinent. Maybe you would like to learn how to build an entrance by watching Ian Bell play.
I encourage you to watch the masters play and learn from them. However, I must emphasize that you do not lose your own individual style. It is good to incorporate your own model and that of an expert if you study many people in business, in the arts, music and other sports, use a model to create a perfect ideal of how they want to act and manage their performance.
I like to encourage you in your next training session on that practice to really act like that hitter you wanted to emulate. How would your hitting models approach the session? How would the batters play the innings? How would hitters rebuild the team’s score after losing a couple of fast wickets? How would batsmen attack bowling? Next, set the field in your imagination to one that you have to face when you play.
When you practice in the networks you can start to start this way of playing as if you were in the middle. You’re going to aim to always have the ending in mind when you hit the bat. Say, “I’m going to go out batting and I’m going to be like (batter’s name).
What a great way to start your innings in the area and to really gain the mentality of being in that player that you have always admired.
