Have you ever wondered what is the real difference is between playing club cricket and playing in the IPL, Ranji Trophy or even for your country?
I’ve played at those levels, I’ve felt that difference, so it’s a question I get asked by grass-roots players young and old when I am coaching.
So it’s one I wanted to answer in depth on this coaching course: Ranji to IPL.
You see, for me the answer is simple in that cricket is played mostly in the mind: the mentally strong are the ones who make it.
And I believe that you can learn these mental skills just as you can learn to hook, pull cut and drive.
I’ve spent my career fighting. Opening the batting for India against great bowlers like Brett Lee teaches you a thing or two about being tough.
So does walkin
g out to bat in front of thousands of screaming fans in the IPL. That’s about as pressured as it gets in cricket pads.
I’ve had the bad times; the dips in form, the getting duped by wily bowlers and the getting duped by my own mind. I have had to teach myself how to dig deep: how to find a way to keep scoring runs when everything seemed against me.
I’ve made plenty of mistakes.
And with each bad experience I’ve learned exactly what to do to be successful.
More importantly, I’ve learned exactly what NOT to do. I’ve done it and now I’ve put it all in Ranji to IPL so you don’t have to make the same mistakes as me. I did the hard work and made the map. Now all you have to do is follow it.
Despite my mistakes I made it.
I played for India. I’ve played in the IPL.
Imagine what you can do with my knowledge and experience behind you.
Here’s what you will learn on the course:
The best frame of mind in which to be to score runs.
How to consistently pick line and length, even against the best bowlers.
