The No-Mumbo-Jumbo Common Sense Guide to NLP for Cricket

Filed in:

Who has the time or need for Neuro-Lingusitic Programming? It's much better to just go and hit cricket balls.

If you think the above is true, then read this article because today we are going to cut through the psycho-babble and give you the truth about how NLP is able to boost your cricket without having to light a joss stick or meditate in the downward facing dog position.

Recently I caught up with a top NLP practitioner, Richard Wrighton, who has worked with cricketers at every level. Although his knowledge of playing bouncers and bowling yorkers was poor, he has helped players - and their coaches - to improve their skills.

What's the secret?

Get a Grip: Forearm Training Leads to More Runs

Filed in:

Stronger forearms give more power in your shots and the ability to go on and on.

But a few wrist curls at the end of the workout like a bodybuilder doesn't cut it. For batsmen who want to score runs, isometric grip training – rather than growing your forearms - holds more importance. This is because flexing and extending your wrist with added resistance will do precious little for increasing cricket-specific grip strength.

So, why do you need a stronger grip to bat?

It starts a virtuous circle.

What's the Perfect Number of Spinners for Twenty20?

Can you use more spinners in your Twenty20 games?

The statistics are on your side. Recently Nasser Hussain observed, that 9 of the top 10 bowlers in international T20 are spinners. He then asked that if spinners are the best bowlers in this format of the game, then why don't we always pick at least two of them as a matter of course, or maybe even three?

Before I decide that for my teams, there are a couple of questions I want to ask.
