If you are serious about making it as a professional player you will need world class coaching. Coaching you can get online at PitchVision Academy. Click here to find out more.


I've never been a professional player, but I've coached, played with and against many who have.

As you are reading this site I'm guessing you have aspirations to make it in some way yourself. I know I have despite my rational brain telling me that it's impossible considering my talent level and age.

You may still have a chance though. If you do, here are my observations on how it's done.

The basics (Skip this bit if you know the structure of cricket in the UK, otherwise read on)

In the UK cricket is run by the ECB. There are 18 fully professional county clubs that can take you on. Below this level there are several local recreational leagues. The best of these are called Premier Leagues but still run on an amateur basis. Most recreational clubs are affiliated to the ECB and players join the clubs (usually at a junior age). If you are good enough at your junior level your club can put you forward to play at a higher representative level within the county you are in.

The best players are playing first eleven club cricket and regular representative cricket by age 16. These are the guys who get first refusal for the professional county academies: the youth scheme all counties operate. Once you are in that system you are well on your way.

Alternatively, you could attend a University that has been allocated as an MCCU (currently Cambridge, Oxford, Loughborough, Durham, Leeds/Bradford and Cardiff/Glamorgan) and get spotted for a county through the University competition.

Older players can still make it though.

Good performances at senior club level or in the minor counties (non-professional representative cricket) can be rewarded with a county trial well into your twenties. The older you get the less likely this is to happen.

Additionally, there are many clubs who employ players on a short term basis as player coaches or paid professionals. Not many players can make a career of this but there are opportunities for good players not quite good enough to make it at first class level. You generally need to contact clubs directly to be considered and you will need a substantial track record in runs and/or wickets to have a serious chance.

The overseas basics

If you want to play professionally in the UK and you are based overseas it's a lot more difficult. You will need a work permit and to play county cricket that means having played at International level for your country of birth (although there are some loopholes).

More realistically is working in the UK as an overseas player for a recreational club. There are many clubs looking for good overseas players but most go though agencies like CricX for them. If you are of professional standard in your own country consider contacting a decent agency as that is the fastest route in.

How to make it as a professional

Now you know the basic system you need to know how to play it to maximise your chance.

  • Be talented. There is no getting around this one I'm afraid. You need a basic semblance of ability to make it to the top. While there are many ways to maximise what you have (see below), if you have nothing to start with you will never make it. Be realistic with yourself and your talent and set lesser goals than making the county squad at least to start with.
  • Have a lucky birthday. Due to the way age groups are calculated, the older kids in those groups are statistically more likely to succeed. This is because they will naturally be bigger and stronger growing up and so will be given more chances to play at a higher level and with better coaching. This has been proven in professional football where there is a lopsided number of players born at a certain time of the year.

OK, there is not much you can do about those things. What about the stuff you can control?

  • Practice all the time. You know the law of 10,000 and with a bit of talent you can reach the magic number in about 10 years. The earlier you start the better and the more you can play and practice the better. There is no substitute. In addition to this you can get professional help from private academies to get the best bang for your buck. I recommend Ian Pont's Mavericks Cricket Academy and Pro Cricket Coaching Academy. There are several others though.
  • Be pushy. If you are working hard at your game and producing results you deserve to be noticed. If that isn't happening you can push yourself into the limelight. Ask your coaches what you need to do to get to the next level and keep coming back to them when you have done what they asked. Jut do it in a polite way!
  • Find a mentor. A mentor is an uncommon thing in cricket but it can make a big difference to whether you can make it or not. Mentors can not only help you (and how much they help is up to you), they can also argue your case for moving to the next level. Find someone you trust and admire and be confident enough to ask them their opinion. Most people love to talk about themselves so listen to what they say and see what you can learn.
  • Become a coach. Doing a coaching qualification teaches you as much about your game as it does about coaching. You learn to interact with people and you learn the techniques most likely to give you success. I would recommend everyone who wants to be a pro to take at least the ECB Level 2 award with aims to get to Level 3 or 4 eventually.
  • Know you mental game. Cricket can be won and lost in the head probably more than any other game. It's essential to learn the techniques to make your mental toughness and will to win as well developed as your cover drive (or googly). Study and practice this element relentlessly until it is part of your make up. You need to be able to bounce back from failure, win ugly and ride the wave of success in equal measures. That takes time but you will be playing so much (see above) you have plenty of games to hone the skills.

However, most importantly, there is one thing all aspiring professional cricketers should do: Subscribe to miCoach and let me know how your mission goes. I have faith in you.

My email plz reply mrn_khn93@yahoo.com

hi David,
I am 22 now and I will most probably go to Cambridge University for my masters. I have a deep passion to become a professional cricketer but never really got any time to join a club or something as I was too busy in academics. So how can I proceed once I reach Cambridge to become a professional cricketer ? I know this is possible and I feel that if Shane Warne is very much fit to win IPL at the age of 41 I can also be a professional!

My email id is : smnkmr62@gmail.com . Please reply there otherwise give you email id.

Thanks a lot !

Hi, I want to play professional one day and i was wondering what age you would need to start playing county cricket for my age regualy. I am 13 and played U12 county but missed out this year?
Thanks

It is not that important that you missed out this year Michael. What is more important is that you know why you missed out and what you need to be working on.

Guys at your age develop at different rates and, to be honest, it is no better to be the fastest or the slowest to develop. If you get a growth spurt, you may not have adjusted to the longer limbs and change in centre of gravity. If you have not yet started to sprout, you may find that others are stronger and more powerful than you.

Keep working at it, keep improving and keep trying. Make sure County know you are there by turning up to all the District matches and being consistent. If you can afford some one2one coaching with the County coaches, that may help a lot too... keep going to trials and I am sure you will make it!

I'am a young aspiring spinner(leg spin bowler) from south Asia(Nepal). Due to the lack of good infrastructures i have not been able to continue my cricket in proper way. I have tried my every to better my game even in such situation. Is there any way i can get to any of the english county sides?

Hi, I am from New Delhi, India. I always wanted to be a cricketer but didn't get support from anyone. I am very good at cricket, an allrounder. Now I am 27 years of age and I still intend to be a cricketer either playing for India or England or any other country for that matter as I am very passionate about it. I just need an oppurtunity. Please can someone support me to get to England or whichever country that supports me and see my talent and on that basis if they think I am good allow me to play for the club or county. I promise I will pay off every penny as soon as I start earning from the club or county I play for. As of now I have a saving of Rs. 2 lakhs INR.
Please help me. I want to live my passion that is cricket as I cant do anything else as I have tried. I am very hopeful.

hi david, i m rashid ismail from pakistan. i want to join a good club in UK i m 23 now. please suggest me a good club in UK who want overseas players. thanks.

I have been playing serious cricket for the past 6-7years in India. I had been to play Premier league cricket in Scotland as a clubs overseas amateur, but i want to play much higher level, something like County, and then country. What way do you think would be right for me? As what i know from my knowledge is that getting into county without playing for country is practically impossible. I am 19 now.
Suggest me the best way out.
You can contact me through mail as well: sanusuvda@gmail.com

I'm a nineteen year old who aspires to play professional cricket.I am currently playing my cricket in Ireland.I've just finished my best ever season with over 1000 runs and 40 wickets. I have also played for the Irish Universities on a number of occasions. However, I am not sure how to make the next step up. Where about in England should I go to make the next step up in level? How do I go about doing this?

Hi,

My son is 7 years old and we are in California. Around 2 months back he said he wants to become cricketer. I didn't take it seriously in the beginning but he didn't give up. He just come with the bat and forced me to play cricket with him. I have been playing cricket with him for last 3-4 weeks and noticed the talent he has. He is a left handed batsman. He has 3 D's - Discipline, Determination & Dedication.

We have CCA(Cricket coaching) in California and last week was his first training class. He was very excited. The moment he started batting against coach's very simple bowling, he impressed the coach and some of the parents there. The coach said, "All left hand batsman, please watch this kid and see how you should play". His footwork was as very good and some of the shots are coming out like Sachin. He likes to watch some great shots on the youtube and try to repeat.

I know Cricket in USA has some limitation in terms of resources. Please advice me how I should move forward.

BTW, I was good in cricket when I was in college. I was very good all-rounder and played up to district level. With less resources and financial hardship I had to just focus on study more.

Thanks,

Hi Cricket Fever ... you forgot the other important D....

Discipline, Determination Dedication and..... DAD.

My advice is that at 7 years old the level of coaching he most benefits from will be directly from you, not from a coach. You say you played a bit, and Im sure you were schooled on technique...

Just play with thim alot, help him develop his general motor skils and reflexes (this means playing more than one sport).. and gently school him in proper technique. Give him these to foundations - motor skills (or you could say athleticism) and basic techique and what you will find is that he will blossom of his own accord around age 12.. and it really only at that point that he would benefit from specialist coaching.

Some people might say that at 7 you dont need to teach technuque but i really believe that is rubbish; of course you do. Thats like saying you dont need to teach a 7 year old table manners. The thing is a balance; you should teach him table manners , you just dont have to teach him how to eat lobster!.. so just keep it balanced, make sure he plays sports that give him differnt challenges - eg make him run fast, help him learn how to fall, help him learn to be brave, how to deal with failure and recognise the need to work hard when things are a challenge, help him learn to dive, to stretch, to throw... and Cricket alone isnt the best way to embedd those skills in young body.

Yes, you want to harness all thatcorss-training to a specific end point/outcome in improving his Cricket, so maintain that as a goal, and continue to be the enthusiastic Dad you obviously are. I'm grateful to my parents for putting me in teams from age 6 (played under 15s at 6): and there's nothing wrong with helping your son by giving him a focus and helping him stick to it... just remember that at this age he doesnt need fancy schmanzy coaches or big resources : he needs the textbook basics , he needs to play healthy competitive games.. and he needs you or a good basic coach to encourage and chide him in the right way.

good luck!

Thank you very much for detail reply. I will continue my involvement with him as per your reply.

Hi David. I am 16 years old and I desperately want to become a cricketer. I have not yet started playing cricket with the leather ball at any level. But I have played several cricket tournaments with the tennis ball. I have been very successful at school level and I m very keen on taking cricket as my career.
I know the basics. I m good at studies so there is a confusion If I should take cricket as my career.
Do you think I could succeed If I start at 17? I am not sure of my talent but I can put off a lot of hard work for sure.

hi, i want to become and international cricketer and play for my national team(india) please give me tips on how to improve my batting and which club do i go o for training in mumbai so as to get selected in the national team. Thanks

Hi there,

I was born in India and I have been playing cricket since I was 3 years old. I strongly believe that I have it in me to make it to the top. I am currently living in a country where cricket barely exists. I am 18 years of age and I currently reside in Toronto, Canada. I know there is a lot of competition. But I heard through someone that if I could join a club in Toronto and if that particular club makes it to the top then I may get a chance to go to the U.K. and play a series there. I am not sure if that is a fact or not. What is your say on this? And can I still join a club in the U.K. if I am a Canadian citizen and be considered to play for their country or at least county cricket without any legal issues? Please reply. Thank You.

Sincerely,
Shah.

Hello,

Thank you for the tips you gave me around 2 months back. I have been playing with my 7 years old son for last 3 months and coaching him as required. He is also playing for CCA in California. CCA now hired a full time coach which i think will help him on the long run. I would like to share the video link of where he is after 3 months. I will appreciate your comments and do let me/him know what we can do better.

Hi admin. Very informative posts indeed. Ok here is my situation. I'm an international student here in UK and doing 1 year masters program. 23 years old. and i believe i'm a very talented cricketer. Cricket is my biggest passion. Is there any way that i give trials for county cricket here as i just have a year's visa. or if there can be any other possibility for me to stay and prove my cricket in county level? What are the options for me as by the end of the day i want to be only a professional cricketer? I'd avail any opportunity available. waiting for your response

Regards

Hi sir
. i am very crazy for cricket
. its my dream to come in any cricket team
. please sir give me a one chance

Hi sir,
. I won a play for any team because i no who i am
its my dream to played for national cricket team

hi!
i am a good at playing cricket but now i am 18 years old and i dint played any of the leagues(school level,college level,state level etc),and i dint played u12,u19....matches,but now i want to enter international cricket.is it possible?
i am an INDIAN.
1)how to enter international cricket?
2)what is the max. age allowed to enter international cricket?
i hope that u would to me for this as soon as possible.

I'm a 19 year old, British born Pakistani. I currently live in Scotland (Edinburgh) and have played at a range of levels here including East if scotland u14's, u16's and North of Edinburgh u17's.
I believe i've been very successful here and proved my talent and passion time and time again. However I personally, as well as many otherm, feel that there is some racism amidst the Cricket Scotland set-up (even white British cricketers admit to this).
I was taken on tour to Ireland and ended up fielding for 40 overs having not batted or bowled a single ball.. on the flight back home I was told by the young coach that I was going to be left out of the upcoming main tournament of the season. A couple seasons later I fractured my thumb and temporarily had it in a cast so could not attend the annual team indoor trials. Since then I have been kept out of recognition or any opportunity to be recognised for my talent and abilities.
Also I am a leg-spin bowler - which is this part of the world isnt very common or playable - I spin the ball big and have a couple variations and have taken many wickets with best figures of 7 wickets for 14 runs from 7.4 overs.
I am frustrated, slightly angered and am losing hope... and I'd appreciate some advice on what to do.

Thanks,
ADEEL RAZA

Hi David,

I'm 24 from Pakistan. I wanted to become a professional cricketer since my childhood. However, my parents forced me to complete my education first and then do whatever I wanted. So, Now at the age of 24, I still dream to become a professional cricketer though I am only a tape ball player. Can I become one if I start playing proper cricket at this age? Can you please do something? Any scholarship for me in your country? I desperately want to play cricket. I believe in my abilities and hard work. I know I can improve extremely quickly. Please advise me what I should do now?

Thanks.

I want know what I can do for become a profession I meant couch can observe more than what friends usually says about us right. One more thing can u suggest me that what is the basic step to play for count, how to approach a local cricket and how can do it. At present I am residence in east London nd my DOB is aug1988.

hi devid sir, i am left hand batsman, and good fielder, please give me a chance, 919099959166

Hi, I want to become an International cricketer. I am 29 years old and I am an all rounder, I used to be just a batsmen but I have improved my bowling, and my confidence when batting and now I open the batting and either open the bowling. How can I get picked for my county team (India) and then how can I continue my career from there? Thank You.

I am going to be frank here, to both the poster above and probably 99.9% of the others who have posted here. If you are not playing professional cricket or at least in a professional set up by the time you're 21, it is very, very, VERY, unlikely that you ever will. It is even less likely that you will play international cricket.

I don't want to rain on your parade but you have to be realistic. I can think of maybe a handful of players who have been picked up by a county after the age of 25. Even then I would wager that most, if not all had been part of a county set-up during their teenage and early adult years.

Yes, we all love stories of the underdog but come on, do you really think that at 29 you are going to be selected for your country out of the blue?

While there is always a chance, there is a time to be realistic and ask how big that chance has become.

You put it in friendlier terms than I managed.

I understand that things are a little different in India and Pakistan but still, it is very rare to players to pop up out of the blue. Talent is often spotted at an early age and nurtured. A lot of time and money is invested in players during their teenage/early adult years - this is often why it is harder to get out of the system than into it.

I just think posters on here need to be realistic - aim to improve your game by all means. However, don't think you're going to find yourself playing for your country if you've reached the age of 29 without ever playing professional cricket.

Agreed, although you can never knock the passion people have for the game too.

Agreed - passion is to applauded.

hello sir,
i want to be a sportsperson too.i am very much passionate about cricket.i can be a good all rounder.can i get free coaching in bangalore??

Hey David
Shadab here... I am 20 years old.. Want to make in Indian Cricket Team or any foriegn Test playing nations... I have played club level cricket in Abu Dhabi, UAE.. Cudnt go for UAE U-19 selections cuz of Studies... Now i have shifted to India for higher studies and play for the University in Delhi... What should I do next other than joining a club here to play for India.. And what are the prospects and requirements to play County cricket if I shift to England for Further studies and the game.. Thanx.. Smiling

not possible

Why can't I continue in the game...?

Shadab, it isn't completely impossible. If you are coming to England to go to University, you might be eligible to play for the University team - the University Centres for Cricket Excellence play First-class matches against the counties as well as within their own system. If you're good enough, that might attract interest from the counties, but unless you were qualified to play for England there is a disincentive for them to take you on as it would take up their quota of non-Qualified players.

hi sir i am prakash, my age is 18, i am very interested in cricket,,, i am good batsman and off-spinner, pls help, how to i become a professional cricketer.. pls pls help me p.prakash.ppp@gmail.com

Hello David! I am a cricket fanatic living in South Africa. My ultimate dream is to play cricket for a living, and it would be incredible to start my journey with County Cricket. I have represented my province at U13, and U15 twice, and recently attended the Warriors U17 Talent Camp. I am a British citizen as well as a South African citizen.

My school cricket coach is David Pryke, and he played County Cricket for Hampshire. He wants to send me to England to play County Cricket when I leave school.

I would be extremely grateful if you could advise me and guide me in my quest to become a County Cricket player. Are there any problems that I may run into?

Odds are non of you will play for an International side. Be realistic and enjoy your cricket.

Hi David. My name is moiz and I'm from London. I am going to be 18 this june. Last year I played for a local club. And this year I have joined ‘Spencer cricket club' ; did have a training in nets at Oval also. What do you recommened me to do as I want to play on a higher level, county's like Surrey.

Hi.. I want to become a International cricketer. Iam a great big hitter and a off spinner. Please suggest a career for cricket on my mail id given below. Age-22 years height 6.1 inches tall.
I have delievered my best also playing matches with my friends in the stadium.
My Dream is to become a Good Cricketer in my Life.

Hi david,i am a allrounder who can bowl legspin and bat right handed.i could bowl pace in nets which would be around 95kph(58mph)(iam 17) which means i am the quickest bowler in nets.i can bowl legspin verywell but still i haven't reached my potential in my batting.i have all textbook shots and some unorthodox shots to play perfectly but still i fail in the batting recently.what could i do?and also do you really believe the guys who post that they bowl around 125kph-140 kph being a 14-17 years old are telling the truth?.i can only tell that these guys are absolutely crackpots who could struggle to bowl 80kph.trust me i haven't faced anyone over 85mph.i faced 80mph in machine and i am still good enough to bat against it.if these guys are around 135 kph,they would be playing higher cricket.i need your tips david to improve my temparament.

hi krish,if you feel that you are really a good cricketer.try contacting local associations and have touch with coaches around hyderabad.they would notify you when the trials are scheduled.

Hi
Just a few questions on the desired action for a leg spin bowler. Would it be a positive thing if you bowl with a braced front leg as a wrist spinner? And how can you stop "catapulting" the ball when your bowling? I know a leg spinner that drags his bowling arm straight down to his thigh in his action and it loses any momentum and as a result he "catapults" the ball without any pace or spin, he would like to know how he can fix this (are there any drills that he can use or any other method)
Thanks Smiling
